Dead or Alive?

Did anyone else have this experience?

At around 3 p.m. yesterday afternoon I saw a Yahoo! headline: "Pope is dead." Five minutes later, that headline was replaced with "Pope's condition worsens."


Then, at approximately 7:15 p.m. the counter person at Ozzie's coffee house in Park Slope was apparently quite distraught by a news report right around then indicating that the Pope had just died.

What gives?

One can't help but wonder if he'll lie around in a P.V.S. (persistent vegetative state - my new band's name, by the way) for the next 15 years or so.

Can you imagine the shitstorm that would be ignited if someone tried to pull the plug on his holiness? Forget it!
