RWP was born in Manchester, in the north of England, in the late 1950s, so he is very old. He really liked the north of England, which by 1965 was hip and had three TV channels, and where he went to a coed school. His parents, for reasons best known to themselves, then yanked him away, to Belfast and then Dublin, which had one TV channel that started up at 6 pm with the Angelus (Catholic call to prayer). He also had to go to an all boys school, where he realized he really missed girls. This probably let him focus on schoolwork, though, and at age 19, after he had finished college, he set off for America, where he still resides. He has a bachelors degree in biochemistry and a Ph.D. from Harvard in biophysics, and has lived also in Mainz, Germany, Setauket NY, and Richland WA. He currently divides his time between Nebraska, Rosslyn VA, and Florida.

Catching up with old episodes, like Matthew 28.

Not wishing to be disrespecful, or anything, but it's curious that this seems to have been news to the Pontiff. I'm pretty sure they taught us about it in Catholic primary school. It certainly isn't going to help dispel the stereotype that Catholics don't read the Bible, or that religious education in Latin America begins with the principle that the means of production belong to the workers.

Still please cut the guy some slack, and don't let slip what happened 40 days later. Nobody likes a spoiler. I myself haven't gotten through the first season of House of Cards yet.
