Clearance Sail

The Pope has announced that he is closing down Limbo, the place where babies that died before being baptized supposedly went. It turns out that "Limbo" was not actually Catholic dogma after-all, even though it was in the official catechisms for decades. It is not clear whether the babies will go directly to heaven or be allowed first to spend some time in Toys-R-Us. Future plans for the Limbo location are uncertain although it might be acquired by a private developer through eminent domain.

All of this, of course, raises yet once again the question of the status of all those good folks who went to Hell for nothing more eating meat on a Friday. One chili-dog and it was eternal damnation. I suppose the Pope could close down Hell, but then all of those account executives suddenly showing up in Heaven would just annoy everyone.
