So the pope’s retiring.  I suppose that’s good.  It would have been better if he was arrested for covering up decades of child abuse.  Still not too late though.

Now the cardinals get to appoint a new pope.  Here’s an idea: don’t.  Just don’t appoint a new pope.  Then sell the Vatican for the billions of dollars that it’s worth, and give that money to the poor.  While you’re at it, sell all those fancy cathedrals and churches too.  Then disband the Catholic church.  You know, make the world a better place.
