More on the religion beat: apparently, a movement is afoot to make Pope John Paul II a saint. While this seems to be yet another symptom of the kind of thinking that puts everyone who anyone's ever heard of in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, I think it's really just a case of media misinterpretation. Newspaper reports claim that crowds were shouting, "Santo! Santo!" - and assumed that (being Italian) they meant that the Pope should be sanctified.

In fact, they were simply expressing their devout wishes that this man be made the next Pope.
