Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

So the papacy's gone to the dogs.

And today's award for elegant wordplay comes courtesy of Il Manifesto, an Italian newspaper. In reference to Pope Benedict XVI's ambiguous image as both a snarling defender of the old church and gentle steward of papal tradition, their April 20th headline read simply, "The German Shepherd."

I'm as sick of pope-related news as anyone, but good puns is good puns.
