Are news sites like this completely database driven?

The news articles are static so I don't see why you couldn't do it that way. But, you may run into difficulties in the future if you want to expand how you present the news. For example: stream, personalize, email, ...
Similarly to my "type ahead" thread in this forum, I know about a half dozen ways it could be done. I was just wondering how it is typically done. There's pros-cons for taking each path so I thought I'd see what most have found to be the optimal solution.

Pretty much every major website like this today is entirely database driven (especially forums). I can't imagine the frustration involved in trying to do static pages, and I'm not aware of any better way to do it that doesn't involve a database somewhere.
