more from 'the city'

As I sit in my hotel room, sipping coffee, reading the paper, and listening to Noel Coward, I read the following:

Vatican radio found guilty of pollution

A Rome Court convicted a Vatican cardinal [is there any other kind of cardinal?] and a top Vatican Radio official of polluting the environment with electromagnetic waves from a transmission tower. The 10-day jail sentences of Cardinal Roberto Tucci, former head of Vatican Radio's management committee, and the Rev. Pasquale Borgomeo, the station's director general, were suspended, said the rev. Federico Lombardi, the program director. he said the transmission was legal and the Vatical will appeal the verdict.

Meanwhile, Noel Coward croons on, "Would you like some madeira?" And I prepare myself to examine the pictures at the MOMA.
