Arrivederci, Pope Benedict

We woke today and it was back to business as usual with Hillary and Obama doing all they can to garner votes and delegates. "Why is this morning different from all others?" I found myself adding a fifth question to the four we asked at seder.

Ah, yes, it's because we've had a respite, watching the Pope, who'd been visiting our city, awash in regal, white fabrics, addressing the U.N., blessing the victims and their families at Ground Zero and, finally, proving he's a huge a crowd magnet as the Yankees.

Isn't it just like a guy to come into your life, fill the space and then blow you off without a goodbye? I'm having Pope withdrawal.
