|Quoting Schipholjfk (Reply 35):|
The world did loose a great leader. But the greatest leader of all time? Think again. About billion people in this world follow him. Other five billion DO NOT. There have been many great leaders in different capacities in this world over thousands of years. In addition, there are thousands of people who you do not know about but make great difference everyday in a lot of people's lives. Plus in the Western world we are hardly aware of great leaders of the past from other parts of the world. So let's not be so myposic in our view. Great leader.. yes. Of all time... no.

The last 5 years of the pope's life reminds me of the movie Weekend at Bernies. What has he done other than ignore science, and set the world back who knows how many years.

The Pope institution is not such a big deal in e.g. protestant countries.

Where is PSR? Is it a functional airport or an airbase? Is it close to Rome.
I know so very little about Italian aviation. It seems as if there is going to be quite acrush of people trying to get near or into the funeral on Friday. Should make for some interesting logistics.
