Two major world figures were attacked recently: President Bush and Pope Benedict XVI. The U.S. President and the Pope are famous for the security that surrounds each person 24/7. While neither were injured in the recent attempts, W's detail was breached more successfully. There's no way that someone should have been able to throw a shoe at the president from such close range, let alone two. So, to all the Secret Service out there, pay close attention to how quickly the person who tries to charge the Pope is apprehended. And please, make sure your learning curve is short. We don't want any trouble come Jan. 20th.
