Throngs for that Other Messiah
Before the Candidate I will not name here was pontifi...slumming in Berlin, 150,000 people came from a bit further away than the nearest Berlin transit hub to say hello to an 80 year old man from Germany. And, a few days later, while the witless writhed in Berlin, 500,000 said goodbye. What doth it profit a false prophet and his camp followers and Scribes to make of themselves prating fools in Berlin, when the real deal was Present in Sydney?
Those 500,000 were not on their feet. They were on their knees. I know. I heard from witnesses.
