Virgin Mary sighted in West New York tree

It's been a long dry spell since the Virgin Mary was sighted on a Spokane bicuspid, but we're pleased to report this newest sighting practically in our back yard. The Examiner reports:

The Virgin Mary's likeness was spotted in a tree at 60th Street and Bergenline Avenue in West New York, a New Jersey section of the New York metropolitan area. The Virgin appeared yesterday afternoon and has had a constant stream of visitors praying to her since that moment.

A local bus rider noticed a crowd around a tree when she returned home from work yesterday around 6pm. She was heard saying she, "thought perhaps someone died because she saw the flowers and people praying." As she approached, however, she saw the likeness and began to pray.
