Addition: Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, NYC’s midtown marvel, just finished a $177 million restoration in anticipation of Pope Francis’ first visit to the United States — he’ll be in the city next week. A massive part of the massive project? The removal, cleaning and replacement of St. Patrick’s 9,000 organ tubes. (ABC News)

Subtraction: Brian Williams, after telling a flagrant lie about his experience in the War in Iraq, was suspended by NBC. Comedian Steve Rannazzisi, known for his role as Kevin McArthur in “The League,” was dropped by Buffalo Wild Wings from its commercials after he admitted fibbing about working in the twin towers on 9/11.
