Pope Francis: First Pope from the Americas


I remember when I first realized that TV networks often have ‘specials’ worked up about famous people to be aired in the event of their death, long before that actually happens. While it makes good business sense, I felt gypped somehow.
Somewhat similarly, when there is a new face in the news, you see a scramble to be the first book publisher to come out with a biography. Sometimes astute publishers and authors have had an inkling that an individual’s time was coming – at other times, you can see it came down to grabbing any accessible information and putting it into print in time to beat a deadline.
