You know that you are living in odd times when a socialist Senator from Vermont and the Pope seem to have similar deranged economic ideas. From Saint Corbinian’s Bear:
When it comes to spending, what thing in the world comes after food, clothing and medicine? The fourth is cosmetics and the fifth are pets. That is serious. Pet care is like love that is somewhat programmed; that is, I can program the loving response of a dog or a little cat, and I do not need to have the experience of love with human reciprocity. I am exaggerating, so do not take it literally, but it is to make you think.
|Sorry boys, Pope said you gotta go.|
