OK, I admit it. This is a joke that has to be explained to almost everybody. Lots of people have heard of Attila the Hun but don’t know much more than that he was one bad dude. Fewer people know who Pope Leo was except that he must have been a pope or something. The […]
Not only was Leonardo a great artist but he was also very ingenious. Giovanni is apparently a pretty crafty guy too. But…well let’s say I’m skeptical. But, then again, I wouldn’t put anything past Charles Schulz.

One of my heroes, Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran theologian who could not ignore the abuses by the Nazis. He left Germany and spent time in England and in the United States but returned to his homeland to participate in the resistance.
