Vatican's 'Top Sins of 2008'


In an interview published Sunday in the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, Monsignor Gianfranco Girotti, head of the Apostolic Penitentiary, listed genetic experiments, pollution, mind-damaging drugs and society's imbalances between the rich and poor as today's new sins.

The news appears in today's USA Today "A Better Life" feature.

USA Today's website has a more in-depth Associated Press article about the subject.

That story ended by noting, "Last year, the Vatican took on the problem of highway accidents, issuing a kind of 'Ten Commandments' for drivers against the sins of road rage, alcohol abuse and even rudeness behind the wheel."

Long story short: straighten up and fly right.

And yes, clifyt and Adam — I'm talkin' to you.

But, you make a living administering mind-altering drugs. Is there no distinction in that Bull between Dr. Leary and Dr. Stirt?

Do spinal blocks and locals count as "mind altering?"

Oy, this could be the beginning of the end of anesthesia as we know it in the Roman-owned/operated hospitals....
