    can you imagine being imprisoned in 8×8 cell for 27yrs ?? AND NOT BEING ABLE TO RIDE YOUR BIKE?? I would be nuts in a week or less.

    A true giant of a human being. Let his life and legacy be an inspiration to we mere mortals to strive beyond ourselves for fairness and justice.

  4. Pat and Sandy O'Brien Says:

    Can you imagine someone who could forgive those people who unjustly imprisoned him for 27 years? He must have been a moderate man, or as Patrick might say, on the “middle path.”

    faux news is already on the pope’s case. I don’t watch faux news, saw it on Jon Stewart.

      Not surprised. As I joked to my vet last week while having the dog looked at, he and I can now pull our copies of Guiterrez and Boff out of hiding without worrying about the Inquisition coming for us.

      Rush Lamebaugh called him a Marxist. I’d take that as a complement.

  6. Dale Says:

    95 years old. Seems that Nelson Mandela would have been assassinated in the good ole USA long before that age. Just think of JFK, MLK, and RFK.

    Now that I am sixty four
    I set my seat a little lower,
    and I ride a little slower;
    look around a whole lot more,
    and mainly seem to go
    in the direction of the shore.
