Concerning the "News Story" category, we have always made a conscious decision not to include the death of a wrestler in the News Story poll.  The reason is twofold.  One is out of respect to the family members of the deceased, and the other is simply because we feel it would be in poor taste to put someone's passing in a "competition" with other events that aren't nearly as serious or important. A person's passing should not be trivialized in a competition.
