Leica Gurl and I just attended the anti-pope rally but left when angry lesbian vegans hijacked the show (more on that later). Parallel to the massive anti-pope rally was the not-so-Santo Papa's route. (This is the awesomeness of a free, liberal, secular, and democratic society.) He is not waving on our side of the road because the anti-papists were also on this side of the road. Benedict totally lacks the charisma of JP2. He is literally like that evil one in Star Wars up close. The crowds greeting him were actually very sparse, one person deep with many gaps in between. It also felt like a barrio fiesta (or a GAP sale) because it was mostly Latin Americans and Filipinos.
