Does the pope wear a funny hat?

I thought it a bit odd that the pope was retiring (for “health” reasons) for the first time in six centuries, just a few days after the unredacted papers of the LA prelate were released. I didn’t see anything about it in the RSS feeds though, but Digby put voice to that nagging little thought in the back of my head as usual.

Turns out Ratzinger was the head of the section that was supposed to oversee such things. And they say that that brownshirt business was just youthful indiscretion.

And, as predicted, Dorner was not taken alive, though he could have been. Funny how he got burnt out, all Waco-style.

And for all the rounds expended (46 in one case) shooting at trucks that didn’t look anything like the one he had already burnt up (more flames), only one small Latina lady spent any time in the hospital. So much for the deadly assault rifle.
