so close ...

By Diogenes (articles ) | Dec 02, 2006

From the Worcester Massachusetts Telegram:

The diocese said Pope Benedict XVI this week permanently removed Edward M. Kennedy ...

Be still, my heart. The AP cruelly dangled that teaser in front of us only to let us down with a thud: "The diocese said Pope Benedict XVI this week permanently removed Edward M. Kennedy and Alfred C. Graves from the priesthood. Both men were accused of sexually abusing minors." Ka-lunk. It hurts to land so hard. Hard to fault the journalist, though. How many reporters, in the course of a lifetime, ever get the chance to chain together a more satisfying dozen words?

... and yet so far!

    Don't worry Di, in just a few years Sen. Kennedy will have to face the first Pope and learn that God is Just. Part of the joy of Heaven is watching re-runs of the expression on Nietzsche's face when he discover that god was not dead :-)
