Motherhood is hard work. If we don't stick together, we'll all fall apart.

I feel sorry for Ron Howard.

He's just trying to make a movie. He had to secretly send in folks from the crew pretending to be tourists to get pictures of the Sistine Chapel so he could make a set; those mean controlling closed-minded Vatican officials wouldn't let him film within its walls! You'd think there really is a conspiracy they're trying to hide!

After all, there are no books of photographs of Rome. Or the artwork in the Vatican, and they're more protective than the Amish when it comes to images of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. And the skyline of Rome is more closely guarded film than the Zapruder. For sure, there are no websites his staff could have checked. Instead they had to rely on grainy unfocused pictures clandestinely taken with camera phones or the like.

Hm. I guess they didn't have Internet classes in Mayberry.

i feel sorry for him too. After all, no one believes the poor guy when he lies about his movie not being anti-Catholic.

I know!!! You'd think that his being forced (FORCED, I tell you!) to flout the decision of a sovereign nation not to allow him to film inside their borders would be trouble enough for one movie. But then some of their closest friends in Rome start giving the poor widdle wamb a hard time too. Such meanies!

Doesn't your heart just bleed for him? I know evil Vatican mind-controller chip just kicked on. Never mind.
