So, The Pope was making the rounds of NYC today. He started the day with a ceremony at Ground Zero and then moved on to host a Papal Mass at Yankee Stadium. Without exception, every local broadcast station here, preempted all of their programming and covered the events without commercial interruption. Obviously, my plan to veg out in front of the TV today was thrown a Monkey Wrench.
I realize that there are a whole lot of Catholics here who were probably thrilled to be able to watch it all, so I'm not really complaining. But I do have it on good authority that since The Big Guy was out of town, Vatican TV has been running a Buffy The Vampire Slayer Marathon.
