Here we go
CNN.com currently reports: "Pope John Paul II's condition remains unchanged and 'very grave,' and he is showing the first signs of losing consciousness, the Vatican said Saturday."

By the time anyone reads this, the news will most likely have changed. I still wanted to take the opportunity to comment on an issue I see arising. I could be way off here (he could suddenly take a turn and be gone), but it's possible that the Pope will slip into a coma, and that the Vatican may be able to keep him alive on life support for some amount of time.

If that's the case, we'll learn a lot from the way they handle that possibility.
