Pope’s Apology Is Called Inadequate
Protests continued over Pope Benedict XVI's comments on Islam last week. To the right, Iraqis burned an effigy of the pope today in Basra.
I am reminded of a cartoon pasted on the counter at the local copy place. The cartoon shows the counter clerk at the print shop dealing with an irrate customer after the printer made an error -- The clerk said to the customer: "What would it take to make everything good? Would it be OK if we reprinted the job for free, refunded your deposit, and shot the printer?"
