Just for fun--this is the photo Al-Jazeera chose to run in an article about the Pope's recent exhortation to Muslims to fight terrorism. Not very flattering, but is it exactly propaganda? I'm not Catholic; maybe he looks like that all the time. Maybe there's no way to get a flattering shot of anyone at the age of 78. I mean, who's to say, right?
