03. April 2005 · Comments Off on Pope John Paul II Has Died · Categories: Media Matters Not

Oh yeah, that’s nothing new; I heard it shortly after my lunch yesterday. And I listened to a couple of retrospectives on his life, which was all review for me, as I have been following it for the past two-and-a-half decades.

But mostly, I avoided the news yesterday. Because it was “all Pope all the time” – just one episode after another of one talking head after another babbling the same pap, with the Dome of St. Peter’s Basilica, or the windows of the Papal apartment, in the background, and closing with “we are anxiously awaiting the atican’s next announcement on the Pope’s condition.

What do you want to bet that today will just be another variation on the same theme. unless another senational story pops it’s head up

C’mon, people there are always LOTS of other things happening in the world.
