TREAT IT LIKE POPE ON A ROPE ‘CAUSE THE BEATS IN THE LINES ARE SO DOPE
So we got us a new Pope. Salud, Pope “Don’t Call Me Eggs” Benedict XVI! I shall now boldly peer seven hours into the future and predict that Leno, Letterman et. al. will joke that:

-Al Gore is calling for a recount.
-Pete Rose garnered five percent of the vote as a write-in.
-South Florida delegation voted for Pat Buchanan by mistake.
-Michael Jackson was disappointed when he learned “little white puffs” didn’t mean what he thought it did.
-Cardinals wrapped up business in time for homestand vs. Mets.

We’ll see how I do.

(And on a serious note, here’s hoping–but not expecting–that the new guy will do what religious leaders are SUPPOSED to do–build bridges, not fences.)

    Build bridges, not fences

    It looks like a step back from what I’ve seen so far. The new pope should, SHOULD, have two things on his agenda, the two most logical things following recent events. The two things that just sort of make sense for the church if anything for PR alone and if you really want a reason because they’re the two rules that don’t have a religious mandate:

    1) Allow priests to get married
    2) Allow women priests

    This guy won’t even accomplish that.

    Oh, by the way, that’s me, Jason Rodriguez, commenting above. Damn you for using LJ.
