Headlines: Pope visits Lesbos
Well, yeah. A pope, especially an antipope like this one, is going to spend some time with nuns.
Wake me when he talks with normal humans.
Linguistic sidenote: It's fun to watch newsreaders struggling with this name. Like Antichrist Francine, they are far more familiar with Lesbos than with normal females; but they don't want to let us know. So they make a point of devoicing the S as in Lessssbossss. Unnecessary; they could make the same point better by simply using the modern Greek pronunciation, Lesvos. Greek softens most stops into fricatives.
