From John Sonnen who always has fascinating photographs and comments.
Some things never change in the old world (or in this broken world).
Yesterday Italian newspapers noted that the oldest Facebook group (fan club) for the Pope has only 45 members. Maintained by a Croatian, the name of the group is "Viva il papa Benedetto XVI." The news outlets boasted that this was proof that the "approval rating" for the Pope is now at its lowest.
In a rage, I joined the group after reading the article. This afternoon, membership is at 580.
If you're on Facebook then join this group and stick it in the face of the media pundits who then pointed out that an anti-Pope Italian group on Facebook had 4,835 members.
