    Heh. Wise words.

    Might even apply to your crusade against political threads.

    Cbus, if you wish to address someone personally, do it via PM. I don't want to see it anymore here.

    RF, if you wish to respond to Cbus directly, do it via PM.

    I'm sick of meaningful threads being derailed and I'm going to start deleting/editing posts if I see anyone attempt it.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Not a big fan of this Pope but I wish him the best. I grew up Catholic and the passing of Paul IV was a big deal and the passing of John Paul I was a shocker.

    Personally I hope they get someone as good as John XXIII.

    Re: News agencies report Pope John Paul II dead

    CNN.com has removed the banner. The banner said according to Italian News Media the Pope had died. CNN said they were working to confrim it.

    That has been removed.

    Re: News agencies report Pope John Paul II dead

    Some Media reports say Pope has died, others maintain ''He is Dying''

    Some Media reports say Pope has died, others maintain ''He is Dying''
    No confirmation from Vatican
    Friday, April 1, 2005

    There is confusion this afternoon at the Vatican. Some unconfirmed Italian media reports say the Pope has passed away, others say his electrocardiogram has ''gone flat,'' but there is still no official confirmation from Vatican sources.

    Sadly, for Roman Catholics and others around the world, the end has been in sight for several hours, after Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls released the following medical bulletin:

    ‘ ‘The general conditions and cardiocirculatory conditions of the Holy Father have further worsened. A gradual worsening of arterial hypotension has been noted and breathing has become shallow. The clinical picture indicates cardiocirculatory and renal insufficiency.

    The biological parameters are notably compromised. The Holy Father -- with visible participation -- is joining in the continual prayers of those assisting him.’ ’

    Navarro-Valls also said earlier that the pope's blood pressure was unstable and that the Pope asked for the Holy Scriptures to be read to him.

    The pope had a number of visitors earlier today, including the Vatican's secretary of state and several cardinals. Navarro-Valls said the pope remembered that today was Friday, the day he traditionally follows the ritual of the Stations of the Cross and he meditated on that ritual.

    At 7 p.m. local time Friday, a Mass was being held in honor of the pontiff at St. John Lateran Church, delivered by Camillo Ruini, vicar of Rome.

    ‘ ‘ In this moment, he is more than ever our pope -- the vicar of Christ --- who livens us with his passion,’ ‘ Ruini said.

    At the Mass Friday night, Ruini said the pope ‘ ‘is facing the most difficult test of his long and extraordinary life. He is living with that incredible serenity and he has abandoned himself to the hands of Christ, with whom he has always lived, worked, suffered and had joy.’ ‘

    Italians, Catholics and the faithful the world over have been asked to intensify their prayers for the Holy Father in light of his declining health.

    In another development, the papal press office issued a list of 17 new papal appointments, including bishops and archbishops, and a list of six archbishops who resigned.

    The appointments and the resignations were previously approved by the pope, it said.

    In Ottawa, Catholics attending daily mass at St. Patrick’s Basilica expressed mixed emotions. Some told CFRA News they knew the Pope’s death was imminent, and they felt extreme sorrow. But they also said he had done his duty in service to God and that his time on earth was ending.

    It’s expected there will be extraordinary prayer services in the capital region this evening and through the weekend. CFRA News will broadcast that information as it becomes available.

    Didn't news reports already erroneously say he was dead just a few months ago?
