    -Wouldn’t know how to start my morning without my Live At Five – Hail Wombaticus, Slayer Of Trolls.

    -One Quibble: Headline reads: ‘Pope Francis Bestows Sainthood On Italians Massacred By Ottomans’, should read ‘Pope Francis Bestows Sainthood On Italians Massacred By Muslims‘, so that the message is clear [I know it’s not your fault, oh Brave Wombaticus].

    Anyone unaware that the Ottomans were Muslims is too ignorant to be reading political blogs these days.
