It's big news

Yesterday here in Romania, there was a lot of news about the Pope. I understood some of what I heard on the radio...but most of it was either in Romanian or Latin.

But towards the end of the day when a my romanian friend Phoebe couldn't find any other news except about the Pope. She couldn't even find much coverage of the death of Prince Ranier, and an friend arriving here from Spain hadn't heard anything about it either. And this is Europe people! So... I begin to wonder the same thing Sean did:

This -- Bushes, Clinton but no Carter at funeral -- was all over the morning shows today. It reminds me of Junior-High.

Isn't there some news that need covering?

Yes. I thought so too.
