Good joke. Nice one to read at the bottom of these postings. I find it awful hard to not like the guy. I think he's got more cahunas and brains than all of us put together. I bet even "guest" would have been impressed if he sat down with John Paul and talked philosophy or politics--in about thirty different languages. John Paul did not back down from saying what he felt to anybody. By all accounts, he led a truly prayerful life. His prayers just led him to a different spot than the average folksinger sort. Guest has the right to his views, but I think that John Paul's substance is more informed and less petty. I am not saying that to piss him off, because it is equally true if myself. When they asked Mozart why he remained a Catholic, he said, "Everything else is just in your head."
