How About That Pope... (And A Pox On Thee, Yankees!)
I've been watching Pope coverage for much of the weekend, and of course, I watched this morning's Ground Zero ceremonies, which were understatedly beautiful, touching, and healingly emotional. Perhaps the Pope's visit will signal a new beginning for some of the families touched by this tragedy, and will allow both the found and the unfound victims to rest in peace, once and for all.
I guess I'm like most of the rest of us who lived through that horrible day, glued to the TV, watching the unfolding of the events, with a somewhat surreal feeling surrounding everything, and later, a sense of profound loss, tragedy and untoward and profound sorrow.
May the souls of those lost rest in peace, and may their families find comfort, love, and most importantly, hope for the future.
And right now, the Pope's coming into a packed Yankee Stadium. And I hear the Yankees have banned him and his Popemobile from the outfield grass. A pox on thee, Yankees..... for shame, a pox on thee! You think the T-shirt was a problem? Just wait... grrr......
And I'm getting my brooms lined up for the game tonight.... I trust you folks are all doing the same. We're going to have a rather clean Mets house after this evening, aren't we?
