You Should Have Seen The One That Got Away

That's what Zadok, who apparently came back from hiatus while I was out, says it looks like the pope is saying. In fact he was addressing a French Catholic community (AFP photo).

In case you're interested in things other than my pilgrimage, don't forget to visit Ninme, Queen of Links, who has the latest Mark Steyn, and various and sundry other items. (She's also sending a whole heckuva lot of traffic my way for my travelog, for which thanks, and welcome to her readers.)

I've been meaning to call your attention, too, to one of Ninme's blog friends, the Pedant-General in Ordinary of Infinitives Unsplit. The P-G, as I hope he doesn't mind me calling him, since I read him enough to feel friendly, has a corker of a post for anyone feeling soft-hearted about communism. My kind of person. (The P-G that is.)

Tim Blair has a good round-up on Danish cartoon fall-out.
