pardon me, do you have any misdirection?

All the square radio stations near me are making a big fuss about how lovely it is that the Vatican has finally pardoned, or forgiven, or made amends with, or whatever, John Lennon for his "more popular than Jesus" remark. Groan. It's so cute when clueless old guys try to be relevant, especially when they totally miss the mark. Yes, the Beatles are probably the greatest band of all time, but they're not super current, since they stopped performing live a few years back. And no one really cares what the Vatican said all those years ago, and if anything it probably increased record sales in the long run (Beatles: "Thanks, Pope, says I!"). And as a final stab in my dismissal of this non-item, I'm sure the dead and living Beatles are very gratified to be in company with pedophiles and rapists as people with whom the Vatican has no quarrel.

My apologies to the lovely observant and lapsed Catholics in my life for raspberrying the Vatican.
