Will NYT fecal transplant story set a most-emailed record?

Letter to Romenesko

At 7:58 AM CT, I received this email from an editor who requested he only be identified as “an avid Romenesko reader.”

Subject: Fecal transplant story. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and predict that this will end up as the most-emailed story in the history of the NYT, with the subject line: “I was thinking you’d make a good donor.”

I don’t know if it’s on track to shatter NYT’s most-emailed record, but the story was #1 at 2 p.m. CT:

* Fecal treatment gains favor for some illnesses (nytimes.com)

UPDATE: The Wisconsin State Journal’s GEORGE HESSELBERG writes: “I would have to agree with the guy. Everybody was talking about this story by our medical reporter, David Wahlberg, and forwarding it.”
