Given the usual way of such things in Italy, it's a tiny back-street
firm that has done this job for generations. They charge for it, but
only a modest amount. Then they have as much trade as they could want
from other people, "because it was good enough for Il Papa"

As a matter of fact, I touched on that very fact while my
housemate and I were having a fine dinner at Outback Steakhouse last
night. I was also interested to see that it was NOT FAS Oak used
for the outer coffin. I liked the fact that it looked more like
#1 common or so...the knots, etc, made for a more interesting
If I had a quibble, it would be that I might have been
inclinded to vary the size of the dovetails a bit...perhaps
widest at the top, and, shrinking a bit as they got to the bottom
but...hey...I'm Lutheran (*smile*)
As for his policies...I have to say that I, too, hold a
great deal of respect for him. Although there were a number of
areas where he held onto reactionary views that were not all
that appealing, he did a great deal to help bring Peace to the
world and to spread the idea of the Universal Community.
I can only hope that the NEXT Pope will be as good
for the world and the church as John Paul... and my prayers
go out to the Cardinals that have begun to wrestle with that
decision. I hope they choose wisely.
