Crowning the Archbishop?

From the "Confused Coverage" desk, we have a piece from yesterday's Houston Chronicle on the growth of the newly-elevated archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.

The story used as its tie-in the December division of Texas into two provinces, a transition which becomes complete on Wednesday, when Jose Gomez of San Antonio and Joe Fiorenza of G-H receive their pallia at the hands of B16.

But check this lede: "Pope to crown archbishop."

The Pope hasn't even crowned himself! (As the crocodile tears of a certain fringe remind us daily....) The misinterpretation is just too funny, and it's further explanation of how and why all these people are flocking to Dan Brown as the Scriptural and theological commentator du jour.
