A Galaxy called Rome, for real?

BBC NEWS | UK | Wales | South East Wales | Astronomers find star-less galaxy
Astronomers have found a dark object which appears to be a galaxy without any visible stars. I recall the Malzberg story (really more of a meta-story), but this galaxy, I think, is more dark matter and not something like a galaxy of black holes.
Still, there are wild and wooly things out there. A Black Galaxy without stars is probably not the weirdest thing out there.
