Well, no skin off the Pope's nose...

There is a classic line in Douglas Adam's "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" where the philosophers threaten to go on strike. "And who will that inconvenience?" asks the mega-computer, Deep Thought.

The protest by some students and faculty at the La Sapienza University that caused the Pope to call off his visit falls into the same category. As demonstrations go, all it demonstrated is how small minded some people can be. I'm sure the pope will enjoy having a blank hour or two in his diary.
