  1. VATICAN CITY: Pope Benedict XVI said Saturday he hopes to continue the openness with the media fostered by his predecessor and thanked journalists for their coverage during the "historically important'' events during the papal transition. "I hope to follow this dialogue with you and I share, as Pope John Paul II observed concerning the faith, the development of social communications,'' the pontiff told more than 1,000 members of the media and pilgrims in his first appearance in the vast Vatican hall used for weekly general audiences. Benedict noted that John Paul had been "a great artisan'

Trying to be misunderstood, But it doesn’t do me any good, Love the way they smiled at me Held that face for eternity Now let them all fly off, When it comes down, It all comes down, And you will not be found, When it’s over, It’s all over, Even if I make a sound I’ll be misunderstood, By the beautiful and good in this city, None of it was planned, Take me by the hand, Just don’t try and understand Trying to be misunderstood, Just a product of my childhood, Still I find myself outside, You can’t say I haven’t tried, Perhaps I tried to hard, No excuses, I Won’t apo

    Sexed Up

    Loose lips sunk ships I'm getting to grips with what you said No it's not in my head I can't awaken the dead Day after day Why don't we talk about it Why do you always doubt that there can be a better way It doesn't make me wanna stay Why don't we break up There's nothing left to say I got my eyes shut Praying they won't stray Oh we're not sexed up That's what makes the difference today I hope you blow away You say we're fatally flawed When I'm easily bored Is that OK? Write me off your list Make this the last kiss I walk away Why don't we talk about it? I'm only here d

I walk a lonely road The only one that I have ever known Don't know where it goes But it's home to me and I walk alone I walk this empty street On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams Where the city sleeps and I'm the only one and I walk alone I walk alone I walk alone I walk alone I walk a... My shadow's the only one that walks beside me My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me 'Til then I walk alone Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah I'm walking down the line That divides me somewhere in my mind On the borde
  9. April 2, 2005 Schiavo's autopsy completed TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Terri Schiavo's body was cremated Saturday as disagreements continued between her husband and her parents, who were unable to have their own independent expert observe her autopsy. The cremation was carried out according to a court order issued Tuesday establishing that Michael Schiavo had the right to make such decisions, said his lawyer, George Felos. He said plans for burying her ashes in Pennsylvania, where she grew up, had not yet been completed. Terri Schiavo's parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, had wanted to bury their da
  10. April 2, 2005 Pope John Paul II dies at 84 VATICAN CITY (AP) - Pope John Paul, who helped topple communist governments in Europe and left a deeply conservative stamp on the church he led for 26 years, died Saturday night in his Vatican apartment, ending a long public struggle against debilitating illness. He was 84. "We all feel like orphans this evening," Vatican undersecretary of state Archbishop Leonardo Sandri told the crowd of 70,000 that gathered in St. Peter's Square below the Pope's still-lighted apartment windows. A mass was scheduled for St. Peter's Square for 10:30 a.m. loc

Family feud over Terri Schiavo goes on Mark Long Canadian Press Thursday, March 31, 2005 CREDIT: Associated Press Suzanne Vitadamo, Terri Schiavo's sister, left, Mary Schindler, Schiavo's mother, center, and Bob Schindler, Schiavo's father, right, pause during a news conference outside the Woodside Hospice where Schiavo is a patient on Wednesday, March 30, 2005 in Pinellas Park, Fla. PINELLAS PARK, Fla. - The seething feud between Terri Schiavo's parents and husband raged on even after her death, as both families planned separate funerals for the woman whose final months riveted Amer
  12. Pope's Condition `Very Serious' After Heart Failure (Update3) April 1 (Bloomberg) -- Pope John Paul II, spiritual leader of the world's 1 billion Catholics, is in ``very serious'' condition and has received the blessing for the dying after suffering heart failure and a high fever, weeks after surgery to relieve breathing problems. The pope was ``conscious'' and ``extremely serene,'' said Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls at a press conference in Rome. The 84-year-old pope yesterday received the blessing for those approaching death, Navarro-Valls said. His condition is stable, though
  13. Terri Schiavo Dies, Ending 7-Year U.S. Legal Fight (Update4) March 31 (Bloomberg) -- Terri Schiavo, the brain-damaged woman who became the focus of a national debate as her parents and husband fought over keeping her alive, died this morning, 13 days after doctors removed the feeding tube that sustained her. Schiavo, 41, died in her hospice in Pinellas Park, Florida. She had been in what her doctors said was a persistent vegetative state since a cardiac arrest in 1990. Michael Schiavo petitioned courts for seven years to allow his wife to die, saying she wouldn't want to be kept alive ar
  14. What a wonderful article. There's so much truth in it... 100% *sigh* unsure
  15. 12:04 a.m. March 23, 2005 ATLANTA – A federal appeals court refused early Wednesday to order the reinsertion of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, denying an emergency request by the severely brain-damaged woman's parents to keep her alive. In its 2-1 ruling, a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals said the woman's parents "failed to demonstrate a substantial case on the merits of any of their claims." "There is no denying the absolute tragedy that has befallen Mrs. Schiavo," the ruling read. "We all have our own family, our own loved ones, and our own children. However, we are

Maybe tonight I'm gonna tell him how I feel Maybe I'll leave well enough alone Maybe, just maybe, he'll want to be my baby What if he's got plans of his own I'm waiting for the perfect moment Looking for the perfect phrase The one I finally choose is simply "I love you" As the words came out I heard a voice inside me say What made you say that Was it the moonlight, was it the starlight in your eyes What made you say that Have you been listening to your heart It's too late now, you don't want to (I won't let you) take it back 'Cause I know love's What made you say that Look up to

  18. Home Sweet Home? Craig Morris 02/05/05 Culture Shock USA - Part I I had not been home for almost eight years. A lot had happened in that time. From Europe, my fellow Americans seemed to have lost their capacity to think straight. Some in Europe and the States rightly spoke of a slippery slope into totalitarianism. I long hoped that my country would at some point understand what the Patriot Act (1) represents. But not even the disgraceful conduct of our soldiers in Abu Ghraib was enough to keep the current administration from winning a majority in the elections of 2004. Would I come home t

  21. One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at w
  22. On the first day God created the cow. God said, "You must go to the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer. I will give you a life span of sixty years." The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty-five and I'll give back the other thirty-five." And God agreed. On the second day God created the dog. God said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. I will give you a life span of twenty years." The dog said,
  23. Instructions on how to clean your toilet 1. Put both lids of the toilet up and add 1/8 cup of pet shampoo to the water in the bowl. 2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom. 3. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids. You may need to stand on the lid. 4. The cat will self agitate and make ample suds. Never mind the noises that come from the toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this. 5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a "power-wash" and rinse. 6. Have someone open the front door of your home. B

  25. Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome. Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in mud. After a while you realize that while you are getting dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it. Help a man when he is in trouble and he will remember you when he is in trouble again. Behind every successful man, is a surprised mother-in-law. Whoever said money can't buy happiness, didn't know where to shop. Alcohol doesn't solve any problems, but then again, neither does milk. Most people are only alive because it is illegal to shoot them!! Forgive you
