A sign of our times

In a true measure of the information superhighway - or maybe just naked commerce - within hours of the election of Benedict XVI as pope, more than 200 items relating to him for sale or bid. This includes editions of newspapers, announcing his election, that won't be published until tomorrow.

Say, if the world ends overnight, does that mean that bids on those newspapers would be disqualified?
