One of the amazing things about the press coverage of the Pope’s death is that you can find beautiful articles like "Sore feet, soaring heart" in the Oregonian of all papers.
Of course most of the coverage has been the usual crap where for an alleged balance they want to both praise and denigrate the Pope at the same time. That everything much be crouched in political terms. One of the Angry Twins relate how he was interviewed by three separate media outlets and that their resulting quotes were totally misrepresented in all three cases (though one promised to run a retraction after he complained.)
Well, as Arthur and Andrew agreed not to do interviews for secular papers, I’ve made a deal with myself not to read secular papers. All that happens is that I get upset at their lack of clarity, total inability to understand the truth of a situation, and the ever-needed digs at the “lack of collegiality” or “backwards slides for womens issues” that they simply CANNOT leave out of (it seems) every single article about the pope.
Well, that’s it. I can’t read them any more. It isn’t healthy for me, and besides, I know I won’t find the truth there.
