As the media enters the Pope John Paul II Death Watch (cue theme music), they are showing retrospectives of the Pope's life. I am watching one of them on PBS right now. I don't think I ever realized what a fascinating life he led. However, the funny thing is that the Communists were apparently happy that he had been made Cardinal of Krakow, since he was a "philosopher" and would not be interested in affairs of state. Wow, was that a bad gamble.
