John Paul's Blogs

Pope_Laptop

As you may have heard, J.P.’s assistant has refused to “burn the late pontiff’s notes as his will demanded, arguing that the papers contain ‘great riches’ and should instead be preserved.”

I’ve had a chance to read through J.P.’s musings, which are basically diary entries about his views on ethics, philosophy, politics, and soccer. I found them to be quite boring, and only useful to cure insomnia.

He originally wanted to have these notes on his own blog website, but he wasn’t quite computer savvy.

I told him that blogging required an Internet connection, but he didn’t believe me.

He told me, as Pope, he shouldn’t have to be connected to the Internet, but that his computer should automatically submit his notes to a blog. This was a miracle he hoped to perform: blogging without an Internet connection. It obviously never happened.

Your Holiness

You obviously have a wireless connection to your power. He may have had fear of the underground connections that were His only chance for some internet fun. Please don't judge Him too harshly.

But, if his notes do eventually end up on the internet, then he will have succeeded in blogging his notes from the grave. He never ceases to astound and amaze.
You better keep on your toes!

Holy one,

What do you want done with YOUR notes? Not that it matters, since apparently your wishes won't be followed anyway. I saw you on TV this morning. You were smiling. I guess you got a good night's sleep after reading those OLD Pope's diary entries.
Respectfully yours,

So what you are saying is that future popes should use reverse psychology. If you want your notes burned, say in your will that you want them all published?

If you want your notes "burned," you are going to have to tell blogger to take your blog off of the internet, I doubt they will take them off though because of their significant social and historical value.

Curing insomnia is a lot. People with a clear conscience sleep well. Do you ever sleep?

I'm sure that if someone posts J.P's notes on the web, they will become FAR more popular than your blog ever will, just like Tupac Shakur's albums did ok after his death

He probably would have just downloaded kiddie porn anyway.

Maybe if J.P. musters up a 'miracle' post-death he can be a saint?!? ...or not...
