Just a quick note on the whole Pope/Irish/Media thing..

It might be worthwhile to point out to those people who are claiming that Benedict's papacy is being "marred" by the sexual abuse scandal, that he is the one who is cleaning up the mess left by others. He is, in fact, taking the rap for someone else who failed to deal with it in the past.

The abuse cases all date to a previous papacy, and it only appears to be happening now because he's finally dealing with it openly. As a certain other high-level Vatican official manifestly failed to do, even while it spent decades brewing away under his nose.
