"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

[Media Source*] I have not written much about the Pope (as many other bloggers/news agencies have already) but here is an interesting piece that I found on Yahoo News.
Mehmet Ali Agca, the Turk who attempted to assasinate Pope John Paul II in 1981, has asked Turkish authorities to briefly let him out of jail so he can attend the pontiff's funeral, his lawyer Mustafa Demirbag said...
"That is why we are seeking four days of special leave, including travel time, for my client to attend the pope's funeral," the lawyer's statement read.
Agca may in fact be allowed to travel to Rome as he has met certain qualifications while in prison (like good behavior) and is currently being transferred to a minimum security prison.
Since the Pope forgave him I see no reason as to deny him the trip. Although he is responsible for other crimes (murder among other things) as long as their is adequate security around him his pilgrimage towards the papacy should be fine (pending Vatican approval of coarse).
Here is a picture below of Agca, who ironically looks dressed a lot better than the guards around him.
