It's your report, you can put whatever you want in :) Simply print the
size of the resultset of your main query, or if whatever
language/reporting tool you're using can't do that, just do a SELECT
COUNT(*) with the same WHERE clause.

If your language supports it, you can re-sort your resultset with a
custom comparison fuction and display it again. Otherwise, you'll need

So you want the same records to be returned in two orders, but as one
resultset? Stick two queries together with a UNION ALL keyword.
