What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

We have a Popecicle

I love how all the news is a buzz with how Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Archbishop of Buenos Aires, chose the name of Francis I. And how that refers to Francis of Assisi and how that means he'll be adopting the mantle of a humble servant. But that's looking at a very small slice of St. Francis' life. You may remember the thing with the birds (which it's often told from the viewpoint of his love of animals and creation, and completely bypasses that it was an admonishment to the church).

But I guess the press has never heard of this guy. You know, the other St. Francis. My guess is they will by the end of the week (or maybe after mass on Sunday).
