Foreclosing on the Pope and the Detroit Lions

Home foreclosures are at an 8 year low. Well, duh. Everybody that could have lost their house in the great recession already DID lose their house. OF COURSE the percentages are going to go down. There's nobody left to foreclose on.

The current Pope is making a hero out of one of his long dead predecessors. OF COURSE he is. This is what Popes do. They beatify, canonize, and even confer sainthood on their fallen brothers from times past. Too bad they're typically a couple centuries behind what's going on in the real world.

But on to sports.

The Detroit Lions lucked up and pulled off an improbable win against the New Orleans Saints -- with no small amount of help from the refs. A couple phantom (BS) pass interference calls against the Saints made the difference. Sure, the Lions have suffered from equally bone-headed calls in the past, and what goes around comes around. Now the Lions are 5-2. Let the feverish Honolulu blue and silver masses jump on the bandwagon yet again. Careful. Over 50 years and counting, including last season, should make them wary. Speaking of Popes, Alexander the poet continues to have it right when it comes to Lions' fans.

"For fools rush in where angels fear to tread".
