And In Other Deathwatch News...

The Pope has taken a turn for the worse.

MSNBC's Chris Jansing has had to suspend her Roman shopping spree to cover some actual news today.

She went to Rome for Easter Week and stayed. And shopped (Haven't you noticed the new earrings each day?) And stayed. And stayed.

Her reports have been pretty boring: The Pope is sick; the Pope is sick; the Pope has a feeding tube now; the Pope is sick; yada yada yada.

Finally, she can report that the Pope has a urinary tract infection, which could signal the onset of an irreversible condition.

I can't help but imagine that Ruini, Re, and Ratzinger aren't too pleased that Il Papa wants to veg out on life support indefinitely.

I also can't help but wonder if the three R's aren't down in the catacombs hunting for that famed silver hammer.

A little investigative journalism and a few hundred thousand Lira might produce some real news, Chris.
