And This is News to Whom?

An Italian commission has discovered what many of us suspected already: the KGB was probably behind the 1981 attempt to assassinate Pope John Paul the Great. Given JPII's obvious influence in world politics at the time the discovery that the former Workers' Paradise was somehow responsible should come as a surprise to no one. Granted, the commission can't prove anything--it's more a matter of reasonable doubt, they say. You know, like OJ and Nicole.

I suppose those folks who endorse the notion of corporate guilt are going to be in something of a quandary here: since the Soviet Union no longer exists as a corporate entity, how on earth are we going to use it to transfer the moral culpability for this act onto the entire Soviet people? Oh well, maybe the Russians will do in a pinch.
