I just sent this to BumApples, who first noted the Catholic church’s recent acceptance of Galileo. The list of things for which they’re belatedly apologising is starting to resemble Kent Brockman’s corrections.

Closeted over all these years, the Vatican has finally announced that it likes the Beatles.

L’Osservatore Romano, semi-official newspaper of the Holy See, this weekend set aside its papal transcripts and clerical itineraries to disclose an affection for the Fab Four’s “unique and strange alchemy of sounds and words”.

Yes, we call it “music”.
