And, may one ask, did they "pour through" those entries?
Ink? Molasses?

The term should be "pored over" -- tsk, tsk. And this in
an article on the Times!

Since there was no attribution with the posting to FoRK,
it's not clear who is responsible for such lax writing. If
it appeared in the NYT, the editors should have known
that "poured through" is not "fit to print" in this
context. ;-)
