[Ads-l] "[Pope Francis's] _money quotes_"

In America, the official magazine of the Jesuits of the United States.

I doubt that the writer is aware of the model phrase, "money shot,"
originating in the field of pornographic cinema.

Jesuits are known for knowing stuff. But, sometimes, they don't know the
simplest things. The principal of my high school referred to "Levi's" as
"Levies" and a teacher pronounced "Buddha" as "Bud-ha."


All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
