Apparently there's another Pope. He's called, with startling originality, Benedict. The Sixteenth. Why? His name's Joseph, for goodness sake. Why do the keep doing this?

According to this report;

"In the Vatican, he has been the driving force behind crackdowns on liberation theology, religious pluralism, challenges to traditional moral teachings on issues such as homosexuality, and dissent on such issues as women's ordination."

Good. If anything is likely to further damage the relevance of the Church, another few years of a Pope whose advice nobody will actually follow seems likely to be it.

Much, much more interesting, is the news that Kate Moss and Pete Doherty are getting married. This is also excellent news. It might stop me from hearing about them. After all, as we should all know, people's celebrity status is immediately slashed in half when they get married, and they cease to be Kate, or Pete, but Kate and Pete (because we all know who wears the trousers in that relationship). This event, coupled with what I'm told is certain to be a no-show at this years Reading & Leeds festivals by Mr Doherty, should relegate him out of the interest of my generation. About bloody time too.
