The windows on the Death Star are filthy and have to be washed every few weeks to prevent it from looking like something out of Blade Runner.

Amazing the photographer didn't get hit by 30 City Bikes.

I seem to recall that John Paul II couldn't be bothered detouring over to St Stanislaus from Broadway, on his little Popemobile tour of Manhattan, even though the parishioners begged him to and had a sign up welcoming him and sat around hoping he'd show. Phooey on him, and I'm very much against this bogus saintmaking anyway.
