Prosecuting the Pope   My husband is a very smart man. Whenever I come up with a new idea (aka hairbrained scheme) he asks me his trademark question: What’s the upside? It makes me think. Applying this question never seems to fail. Sure, with anything we consider we need to think about the pitfalls as well, but if there is no discernible or demonstrable upside, then we probably shouldn’t waste our time considering it to... Read More
