When I woke Friday morning I did the same thing I usually do after I get dressed and brush my teeth: turn on public radio. I caught the tail-end of the half-hourly news where there was much talk about the Pope, his failing health the night before and reactions from significant people around the world. My first thought was, ohp, the Pope finally died. This came across as no surprise since he's been dying for as long as I've known him. The program went back to music and I went on with my day.
Later, I happened upon a news article by chance that detailed his recent heart attack and worsening condition. He was not, in fact, dead. April fool on me.
But now the old man is dead as of Saturday night due to "septic shock". Now he can finally be Saintanized and the rest of us can go on with our lives.
