Today's New York Post carries a brief item by Dan Mangan: "POPE WANTS TO SAVE N.Y. CHURCH: LITHUANIA PREZ." The item begins:
"Pope Benedict XVI wants to see a lower Manhattan church shuttered by Edward Cardinal Egan reopened, according to a European head of state."
The last time I had hoped to see the cavalry ride over the mountain to save us, Cardinal Egan headed them off at the pass. I hope that this news does not occasion a fast and brutal pre-emptive strike.
