If Pope Smirky doesn't like this cartoon, he can go to his imaginary Hell.

The Pope may not understand the sentiment behind this "insult to religion;" but I'm sure his God will understand. And, as they said in the movie, if he doesn't, then he is not God.

I think there is something that this Pope should think is more of an insult to religion - priests molesting children and the church ignoring that fact and not handing the pedophile priests over to be prosecuted. THAT'S something that is offensive.

Yeah, not to mention the latest Pope pretending his Church did more than anyone else to curb said abuses.

I thought you'd want to know that Andy M. Stewart passed away on the 27th.

Whoa!

How did that happen? That's very sad and unexpected.

Thanks for passing on that news. Sorry I didn't respond to it earlier, I've been rather sick this past week.

Re: Whoa!

Everyone I know seems to be ill - sorry you are too. :-( I had a horrible infection in August that lasted almost 8 weeks!

I have been in touch with Andy's sister for a while now and one of my friends here grew up with him (small world.) He had some spinal surgery that failed a few years ago so he was paralized from the chest down and lost his ability to sing (the worst thing that could have happened!) and his business (he did lighting for the film industry.) He almost died from further surgery last year. There was a big fundraiser to help him get a really excellent wheelchair and some special equipment in his house and better care. Over £30,000 was raised! On about the 8th of December he had a stroke and then got pneumonia which finished him off. It is a really sad story and I felt for him when he was struggling. He was so young - only 10 years older than me. I always thought he was very fit and in good health. So very sad.

Holy Crap!

That sounds like one of the worst medical charlie-foxtrots I've ever heard of. Sometimes people have medical procedures that go very wrong, and sometimes those failures just start a cascade of other failures that end up drastically shortening a life. That's just really sad and tragic.

So...in other news, how are you? I don't remember hearing whether you got your UK citizenship -- how did that go?

Re: Whoa!

I had something kinda like/a precursor to pneumonia that knocked me out for almost all of the New Years weekend. Better now thanks to steroids, but still not all the way back.
