too much information

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Apr 16, 2008

It's official: Americans are now suffering from a glut of news about the papal visit.

How do I know? Consider this Fox News headline: A sports perspective on the Pope's visit to America. Among the gems contained in the story:

There are 70 million Catholics in the United States, most of whom list basketball, football or soccer as their favorite sport. Sports remain an integral part of the Catholic educational experience, which emphasizes nurture of the body as well as the mind and soul.

I rest my case.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Thanks for putting this in OTR. It would be nice if those who are totally ignorant of anything religious would just be quiet rather than expose their shallow superficiality to the whole nation and fill important moments with inane chatter.

    I might end up agreeing with you, but not until I know the name of the Pope's favorite Nascar driver.
