What's Up With That Creepy Old Pope Quitting, Anyway?

As a Catholic, I'm not buying this. Popes don't just quit because they're tired. What's going on here??

When the most trusted man in America says something like "What's going on here?", then something is most certainly going on here.

It's a hearing almost two years in the making! ("So, yeah, this is gonna be a pretty big story," we wrote in July of 2009!) That being said, the committee is not as toothsome as an American congressional hearing would be, which isn't even all that toothsome anyway. Still, people expect Murdoch to come in hot, throwing anyone to the wolves that he can. Perhaps he might resign as CEO! Meanwhile, while we wait, let's look at some [...]
