    It has different spellings as well. Shoo in = sure thing, shoe in = ?? putting your shoe in the door? Spelling: It's the difference between knowing your sh**** and knowing you're sh****.

    So did Jesus, and I bet that, if Jesus returned, you would be the first to go running for the hammers and nails.

    What exactly did the Pope say that amounted to "trashing capitalism?"

    Time magazine selected Pope Francis as its Person of the Year on Wednesday, saying the Catholic Church's new leader has changed the perception of the 2,000-year-old institution in an extraordinary way in a short time.

    The pope beat out NSA leaker Edward Snowden for the distinction, which the newsmagazine has been giving each year since 1927.

    "He really stood out to us as someone who has changed the tone and the perception and the focus of one of the world's largest institutions in an extraordinary way," said Nancy Gibbs, the magazine's managing editor.

    It was the third time a Catholic pope had been Time's selection. John Paul II was selected in 1994 and John XXIII was chosen in 1962.

    Besides Snowden, Time had narrowed its finalists down to gay rights activist Edith Windsor, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Syrian President Bashar Assad.

    Time editors made the selection. The magazine polled readers for their choice, and the winner was Egyptian General Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who didn't even make the top 10 of Time's final list.....snip~

    So what do you think about this selection? Does this Newly Elected Pope deserve this award? Do you think Time had Putin in on that Top Ten List?

    Btw did the Pope show up at Mandela's funeral?
    He is and excellent choice.

    Wait, there's still a Time magazine? What do you know, dinosaurs are alive and well.
