From the lead story on the front page of the LA Times:

"The Archdiocese of Los Angeles agreed Saturday to a $660-million settlement with 508 people who have accused priests of sexual abuse, by far the biggest payout in the child molestation scandal that has rocked the Roman Catholic Church nationwide...dwarf[ing] the next largest settlements in the U.S., including those reached in Boston, at $157 million, and in Portland, Ore., at $129 million...."

There was no mention of the contest for predator priests in Coney Island, where the winner ate 66 altar boys in 12 minutes.
