For those of you who are still interested in Francis' Papal Mile High Club comments (get your mind out of the gutter), you can read them from Julie at Connecticut Catholic Corner. The Bear couldn't care less. He did think it hilarious, however, that the Turks were auto-yammering about Francis the Crusader. Fortunately, the West is not the only part of the world losing touch with reality, although Islam has seldom been within shouting distance.
Apparently, the Church needs to do some more apologizing. Ah, yes. Because nothing makes a person feel better about themselves than apologizing for junk they had nothing to do with. Big man. The Bear hereby apologizes for the final episode of LOST. No, really.
The Bear's interest in aviation will be well-known to readers. He has received confirmation from an Alitalia Airbus pilot who wishes to remain anoymous, that it is a tradition among captains of Pope Francis' airplanes to raise the cabin altitude to induce hypoxia whenever Pope Francis speaks. Bragging rights go to whichever flight crew can get him get him to say the stupidest things.
Another mystery solved.
