Limbo, RIP

I don't know why, but for some reason the impending abolition of the construct of Limbo, expected to come tomorrow at the close of a plenary session of the International Theological Commission, has attracted widespread interest.

While the story even made quite a splash on the front page of today's Inky here in town, the twin quotes of the day come from the commentors in the forum, one of whom asks if the Vatican could please "assure pet owners that there is dog and cat heaven?" and another who, speaking for this city's truly dominant group of religious people, wonders "So where do the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers and Sixers go now?"
