Having sampled the editorial wisdom of London's Daily Telegraph, I've decided to give the Pope the benefit of my wisdom, too.
In his next encyclical, the Pontiff should instruct Mafia button-men to purchase Kevlar vests for the members of rival gangs.
I'm told that some hard-line cardinals in the Vatican are holding out for a more traditional statement of moral principle, in which the Pope would tell the goons to stop shooting each other. That's unrealistic; they can't help it.
The way I see it, if you don't endorse bulletproof vests, you're endorsing murder.
