60 Minutes Equal Time Clock

More on the 60 Minutes hatchet job later. For now I’m working on a piece of code to track the days since tonights broadcast. When 60 Minutes air a comparable story on John Kerry the clock will stop. Note that it’s not actually a clock, but more of a counter. The number of days in the bolded text is what changes. I’m looking for a digital clock representation.
