Knockin' on Heaven's Door
Who Will Be the Next Pope?
How They'll Choose Him
Catholic Right vs. Catholic Left on John Paul II's Legacy
Christopher Hitchens on His Sins
That's how you do journalism, folks; you've got to hit the story from unexpected angles, even if it means looking stupid.
The first story was a classic horse-trading piece, pretty typical for a newspaper; the second, an explanation of papal succession; the third, a dialogue on the church after John Paul II; the fourth, a rather confusing indictment from Hitch. You may not like the choice of subjects, but these are all fairly typical and don't make Slate look stupid in the least. If you're upset they didn't do a fawning profile of him - and as much as I liked him, it's been saturated this weekend - just say so.
