After a week of cloudiness, I am ready for some real rain. We seem to be on the edge of the rain coverage and are being teased with small doses. I'm ready to start collecting on the April showers early and get some of the dust, humidity and pollen out of the air. I don't mind overcast, I would just like to have some of the wet stuff with it.
Friday in the News: "God's Rottweiler...Cardinal NO...Der Panzer Cardinal...Papa Ratzi..." Those were just some of the nicknames for a prominent member of the clergy. He got yet another name when he was named to his new post in April 2005. Who is he? Pope Benedict XVI. The new pope, formally Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, earned a lot of snarky nicknames during his 20 years as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith, a Vatican organization that used to be know as "The Inquisition." Of course, he also has many admirers. In fact, he was probably the only cardinal with a fan Web site, Ratzingerfanclub.com, which praises him for "putting the smackdown on heresy since 1981."

Happy Birthday Wishes to Viktor Lvovich Korchnoi. Mr. Korchnoi is currently the oldest grandmaster, a title which he received in 1956, on the world cheese tournament circuit. He had three classic matches with Anatoly Karpov in the 70's and early 80's. In 1976, he was the first ranking GM to defect from the U.S.S.R. He currently plays for Switzerland. Want a free mini (4 oz) yogurt? Give us the month and year that Korchnoi won his first world title. (Who celebrates that birth of a chess player? A graduate of UT Dallas, that's who.)
