Given a block of text, how to vertically center w one line. But grow to support 2 lines of text?

Please see this jsfiddle:

What I want to do is some how vertically align the text to 50% if there is only 1 lines worth of text.

But if there is two lines, with just css, it should fill the entire space having a height equal to the image.

Ideas? Thanks

Play around with something like this:

.mod-item {
.story {
    display: table;
.mod-item .title {
    display: table-cell;
    vertical-align: middle; 
    height: 30px;
