Sod's law. I'm well acquainted with the law of Sod, whoever he is. Just when you think something is OK and dare you happen to mention it publicly then along comes Sod and bites you on the arse.
It's not often that 800-year-old bones make the news. But the recent temporary transfer of a supposed bone fragment of Thomas Becket from Hungary to E...
Don't get me wrong. I am very fond of Pope Francis -- his warmth and sunniness, and his dedication to serving the poor. But it is becoming wearying when the Pope, after three years in office, edifies the faithful through off-the-cuff remarks that the media scramble to decipher.
