    Who is running the paper, teenagers? Are the editors fans of rock? This may explain some of the other odd items appearing in it.

    Please, Holy Father, get the infatuation that LOR has with popular culture under control, or it will never be taken seriously when it has something of substance to report or comment upon. Leave this to "The Rolling Stone" or "Billboard".

    Why would this publication even bother with a top 10 list of anything? This newspaper is becoming a joke.
