Amongst the malestrom whirling around me, I have had a few simple thoughts:
It was a historic week last week. I feel bound to add my comments.
One old man died and two old people got married.
The Pope's coffin. I keep on hearing how simple it is. A cedarwood coffin, then two other caskets - one zinc and one oak. Then the marble slab on top... Doesn't 3 or four layers of coffin, no matter how simple, seem a little... less simple?
And did they really hermetically seal it? Why? Why?!
And Michael Jackson. Did he touch those boys? But more fundamentally, why is he hanging out, showering with, etc, etc a bunch of juveniles in the first place? Isn't that wrong from the off anyway?
And what happened to his monkey? Is it still alive?
