Ugh

I'm not sure what annoys me more about the Pope's visit: the whole worship of organized religion thing - or all my tax money that is being spent to protect this guy.

The amount of NYPD manpower and equipment around here the last few days is crazy. There are trucks that look like tanks, there are choppers flying overhead, there are uniforms and squad cars on every block for a half mile radius. It has to be running into the millions of dollars. I sure hope the church is kicking in some of that money they don't pay in real estate taxes to help defray the costs.
