Pope Benedict XVI and One of His Many Friends

October 30, 2008
As an undergrad student studying English Literature I developed a new life philosophy: "that which is understood need not be analyzed". This was to create a healthy intellectual distance between myself and the professors and teaching assistants who insisted on analyzing to death every minute details of anything that was read as part of the curriculum, usually drawing out some incredibly hair-brained conclusions.
But it's a philosophy that's stuck with me, and so in that spirit I give you the picture below, from Reuters, that I came across yesterday morning. I will not analyze, I will not comment other than to I think it's adorable, because this picture needs no analysis!
