Re: first lecture of the decade

I believe the Pope sides with the great unwashed. There's a story in which someone sells his soul to the Devil to be collected on the 1st day of the 20th century - the Devil being a mathematician duly turns up at midnight on 31st December 2000 only to be told that he is a year too late by Papal reckoning, and therefore the deal has lapsed.
