Looks like a particularly bad case of “the Mondays” in the Vatican today…
Our anti-austerity protester has spent a second night on the dome of St. Peter’s and was still there as of about 1:00pm today, when I walked by!
Apparently he has posted to his Facebook from up there and said that he does not intend to commit suicide (thank God); rather, as he says, if he dies, it will have been the State that killed him, etc. etc. etc.
Anyway, I’m sure they’ll find a way to get him down soon.
