White smoke at the Vatican indicates new pope announcement imminent, reports state.
Far be it from us to tell folks what to have faith in or not and why. Folks need to believe what will aid them in getting thru a day/month/year/life time and, our general position on it is more power to you.
What we wholeheartedly fail to understand is how a pope resigns his life-long post midst allegations of a scandal of a sexual nature and all avenues redirect to the election of a new perv in some Prada shoes.
History teaches that where there is smoke, there generally can be found some type of fire.
It isn’t that we don’t believe in a higher being – assuredly there is the plausibility of some celestial being out there somewhere – we simply don’t subscribe to the ‘pay, pray and obey’ practices of the Roman Catholic Church.
Our personal detachment to this practice dates back to our Catholic School sentence as a child. We innocently enough asked why the man was in a dress at a holy Friday mandatory service and it all went to hell thereafter.
Seriously, it was like we had demonstrated the anti-Christ insignia.
Fast forward to present day and our view is still reservedly on this avenue… Drag queens get chastised for donning cross-gender attire yet these men wear dresses everyday and we are supposed to view them as deity.
What with the altogether recent scandals of inappropriate activity at the hands of pervy Priests one would think that the initial mention of impropriety, as far up as the Vatican, would merit getting down to the nasty details of what there lies beneath but NO!
How does that happen?
Jorge Mario Bergoglio elected as new pope, to be called Pope Francis
Rupert Murdoch and his son James are presentl appearing before British Parliament figures to get to to the bottom of the phone hacking scandal that is plaguing his company. A company that employs some 52k folks. We are riveted by the on-going developments to date. Including how one wanna-be comedien attacked Murdoch Sr during the hearing – on a live broadcast. So much for dignified and official…
All bullshit aside, it’s fascinating how the world seems shocked at the idea of “investigative” reporting having reached phone hacking limits. If only sensationalized by the likes of names like Jude Law and Sienna Miller.
If you run with a ‘get the story’ theme – regardless of the outlet – the tactics used, all tactics, are fair game and presumably expected. The idea of it is no doubt the brainchild of a little thing called ambition.
News outlets around the world generally make it to a crime scene along with responding personnel – at times before them. That in and of itself should reaise an eyebrow – at the very least.
Government officials taking bribes – in this case UK Police personnel – is hardly a new phenom, if albeit a wrong one. Neither is it shocking that a news outlet employs private investigators or pay informants.
Rupert Murdoch may be the CEO of a company but realistically he is one man at the end of a company with 52k employees. That is a whole lot of folks through which intel is disseminated through. His position hardly merits being the scapegoat.
We are sure this is hardly the end of the story. Undoubtedly it will cross the Atlantic – as all UK matters do – and take on a life of its own in the US. God’s speed to those folks…

Tiger Woods’ libido is all the news of late. I swear that not a moment goes by where there isn’t one more story of another hooch disclosing his use of her cooch! The count is around 10 so far….
Case and point: West Coast convicted madame – Michelle Braun, in an interview with the NY Post reveals that she personally supplied Woods with female companions (note the plural use here!). Apparantly, the Tiger liked to seed two at a time and paid top $$$ for his pride of pussy.
“He liked girl-on-girl,” Braun is quoted as stating. “He had sex with them together.”
Braun goes on to say that her girls thought “that he was just wild and a lot of fun… and that he was tough to keep up with — days [at] a time, with just being a booze and sex bender.”
Tiger’s tally for his ongoing service allegedly amount to about $60k, Braun says.
I’m sure his pretty European wife Elin Nordegren is seething with the count that everyday continues to mount and will be out to get her own prorated payment for having been a passenger on that long philandering train of his.
