Il Papa, Requiescat In Pacem

Although I'm not Catholic (despite my tagline of St Wendeler*), I hope that Pope John Paul (Karol Józef Wojtyla) peace and comfort as he enters the kingdom of God. His work to combat communism (from the USSR to Cuba) and anti-Semitism (through official visits to Israel and Auschwitz) has made him one of the most influential people in modern history. Many of his critics did not agree with his stance on abstinance and any number of issues - but, his positions in matters of Life and Death were consistent.

Your Co-Conspirator,
ARC: St Wendeler

* The reason for my tagline of St Wendeler has less to do with the Saint and more to do with a cheap cheap (but potable) beer from the St Wendeler region of Germany when I lived over there...
