You can act all benign and shit
but don't you fear, my friend
the dirt is just too deep
It'll leak out in the end.
Oh my!  Even Stromboli was so touched by the event, he was moved (by God's hand no doubt) to create a poem.

NPR's vatican correspondent was baffled.
Sylvia Poggioli baffled - a once-in-a-species event - and I missed it?  Rats.

I just back from an hours drive.  I was listening to NPR during that time.  Don't know what's been going on all day, but all I heard about was the Pope.  It's not dying yet.  I finally turned the radio off.

That seagull on the chimney in Rome came back to my thoughts today. A friend and I made a little trip across the border to Germany and we were confronted with a whole flock of Catholic birds. Crows, that seemed to have developed a certain preference for the roof of a big RC church in Rhede, Germany. It reminded me of Hitchcock's movie "the birds". Reality trumps what can be communicated in a video.....

Thanks! I also just found out that the usable code is accessible through the "sharing" link under the video on youtube. I always just included the URL. It worked on Facebook, but not here....
