Another Thing About Poverty

There's a story in this week's Newsweek about a riff between the Pope and the official papal tailor. I guess the Pope likes his old tailor instead of the one that's been making Pope suits since the 18th century (that's quite a long-term deal they have there).

It kills me how much the Pope must be spending on clothing to have a tailor whip him up special outfits for different occasions. It kills me more that he was photographed wearing Prada loafers at a recent event.

I'm not saying he's as out of touch as the Republicans who voted for the $50 million spending cuts, but he's certainly off in that direction.
