What could be more symbolic in the wake of today's Brussels bombings? The Pope, an Argentinian who has moved to Rome and who is lecturing the Europeans on the need to admit more refugees, will wash the feet of some migrants. In the Catholic tradition, this is a symbolic act in imitation of what Jesus did. In my opinion, in the present time, this is a symbolic disaster.
And speaking of Argentina and symbolism, while Pope Francis announces his grand plan to wash the feet of the migrants, our own "leader", Barack Obama, has used the occasion of the massacre in Brussels to make a brief statement in Cuba, head off to a baseball game with Raul Castro, do the wave, and fly off to guess where...
Why not go all the way? You know that third bomber at the Brussels airport they are looking for? Maybe he can make it to Rome and the Pope can wash his feet.
Save your cards and letters. I don't give a crap.
