The Pope

It's going to be all Pope, all the time for the next several days.

I know some people will be unhappy.  Talkback has received calls, and I'm sure emails are soon to follow.

Look at it objectively.  Even if you don't buy in to what Francis preaches, you have to admit he is a world leader, with millions of followers.

His visit to Cuba made history.

The Pope's trip to the United States disrupts traffic, flights, work, play, lives...

Millions of people will be in Philadelphia.  There will be a huge economic impact, spreading far beyond Philadelphia, even in to our area.

The Pope has introduced reforms to the Roman Catholic Church.  He is a fascinating figure.

It all adds up to a lot of coverage.  It's an important story.
