Ciao, baby: it's been long.

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jun 22, 2006

On September 15th, says the Vatican Press Office, the Holy Father "will receive superiors and officials of the Secretary of State in audience, to thank publicly Cardinal Angelo Sodano for his long and generous service to the Holy See."

And get that grin off your face.

Update: my apologies, and felicitations, to Hilary, whose good judgment and deplorable taste anticipated my own by three months.

    Ciao, baby, it's been . . . real.

    That would be "Howard Dean of the College of Cardinals". Again, please ignore the man behind the curtain. The Dean is not in Kansas anymore.

    I'll try, but it's going to be hard. I just hope Benedict send Sodano out of Rome so he can no longer be Dean of the College of Cardinals.
