have-a-nice Peter Rabbit Day
Big day for all chocolate bunny-loving, starchy-white-sunday-bonnet folk out there.
In the vatican the pope was supposed to carry a cross for the last three of twelve stations for the more than hour-long procession. But Vatican officials said that, due to the weather, it was decided that the pope, who turns 81 next month, should stay dry.
Meanwhile in little haiti a procession of the faithful re-enact the passion of christ with accompanying chorus draped in white lead by a very loud preacher in a truck/boombox.
These folks know there is plenty of faith-based dollars to rent a warehouse/start a church. Apostates need not apply.
