Reasons why I love the New York Times, #89,632: the following juxtaposition, from the international roundup:

Pope Benedict XVI plans to grant special indulgences -- remittances of punishment for sins -- to hundreds of thousands of young Roman Catholics expected to attend the church's World Youth Day ...

The church's practice of selling indulgences in the Middle Ages helped to spawn the Reformation.

No, really. Despite my ellipses, it reads just like that. Heh.
