  1. pete, The Vatican allows photos of I believe EVERYTHING but the Sistine Chapel. And the reason is classic Catholic..MONEY. Back in the 80’s I think, a complete restoration of the ceiling was undertaken. Nippon Corp. gave millions of dollars w/ the caveat. NIPPON HAS EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS of the images. Now, I’ve gone to see The Last Supper. No photos are allowed there for a legit reason, that being flash does destroy this VERY fragile work of art.

  2. muslims think you shouldn’t show images of muhammed either. I guess when it’s not your religion the little quirks seem more like, well, little quirks.

    personally i don’t see the big deal about either one.

  3. You are not supposed to shoot photos in the Sistine Chapel but Asian tourists shoot away.

  4. At some point though, dogs trump infants:

    When kids hit one year old, it’s like hanging out with a miniature drunk. You have to hold onto them. They bump into things. They laugh and cry. They urinate. They vomit.”
