  1. We stood & listened to the Pope in the Vatican square yesterday. Half way through, he cut the latin & shouted 'hello to everyone here from Birmingham, England'. Suddenly, all these St. George flags shot up in a scene resumbling a cup match. I couldn't believe it...you just couldn't make it up!
