"...T. Boone Pickens, the 80-year-old billionaire oilman who's thrust himself into the spotlight lately by aggressively advertising his wind-and-natural-gas-powered "Pickens Plan" – meant to save us from the ills of foreign oil addiction – was joined on a national town hall phone call last week by an unlikely ally: Carl Pope, executive director of the Sierra Club..."
"...In that context, the unlikely alliance among Bloomberg Philanthropies (Michael Bloomberg and Carl Pope have just co-authored a book, Climate of Hope, on global warming), the pretentiously named but eclectic production firm RadicalMedia, and the Murdoch-owned National Geographic makes a little more sense (the National Geographic channel will air From the Ashes on June 25). Rupert Murdoch might deny global warming, but his sons have been generally committed only to what's good for business – and like the sun, global warming heats believers and unbelievers alike, along with their business ventures...."

"...Efficiency is seen as the single best weapon against climate change, so both mayors and greens hope to see the so-called 30% Solution adopted when the ICC meets this September. Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope urged support for the resolution, noting that "buildings consume as much as 75% of U.S..."
"...The Sierra Club has recently joined Clean Water Action, Greenpeace, organic farmers, and consumers in protesting the USDA's proposed standards to implement the Organic Food Production Act of 1990. According to Sierra Club executive director Carl Pope, "If USDA's proposed rules are adopted as written, consumers will lose all faith in the organic label." The most recent suggestions from local activists involved in this important struggle are that concerned consumers should correspond with the OFPA's original sponsor, Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont (433 Russell SOB, Washington, D.C., 20510), as well as Texans on the Agriculture Committee, Senator Phil Gramm (370 Russell SOB, Washington, D.C., 20510) and Congressmen Larry Combest (1026 Longworth HOB, Washington, D.C., 20515) and Charles Stenholm (1211 Longworth HOB, Washington, D.C., 20515)..."
"...Reinforcing its focus on television as well as movies, the festival presents a preview of this upcoming series starring Felicity Huffman and Timothy Hutton that his been laying down episodes in Austin during the past year. Hopes are high for this ABC Studios venture which is written, directed, and executive produced by the Oscar-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave).

"...Okay, a little of that: When we are first reunited with Langdon, he's snugged into a sporty little Speedo, but that may very well be the first and only crack in the filmmakers' obsessively straight face. (I, on the other hand, had a hard time not snickering at composer Hans Zimmer’s opening salvo: Nothing intimates doom like the Carl Orff-like combo platter of timpani and a men's chorus.) This time around, the church itself calls in the agitator Langdon for help when the Preferiti – the four favorites to replace the newly dead pope – are kidnapped..."
"...The New York Times loved it. And for 12 episodes, House, Howard Kremer, and Brad "Chip" Pope hilariously schmoozed, bumbled, and schemed their way through various tried-and-true situations and jobs..."
"...Teresa of Lisieux, the Little Flower of Jesus, one of Christianity's best-loved saints, whose beliefs centered on “the little way” or finding goodness in life's most humble tasks. (Teresa was awarded the saint's autobiography at her parochial school as a prize for her composition titled “Why Communism is the Anti-Christ.”) Her dad won't let her join a convent, saying, “No daughter of mine is going to slave away to line the Pope's pockets.” So she devotes herself to things like relining the silverware drawer and scrubbing floors..."
"...Like, with Morrisey, for instance. What do they call him again? The Pope of Mope? That's dead-on, if you ask me..."

"...Princesses swooned at his concerts and threw their jewels onstage. Kings and emperors and even the pope hoped for his company..."
"...Otherwise one has no business, and no right, being in power. Such an idea is quite different from mediaeval European ideas about government, where the king (Pope, emperor, or whatever) often derived authority directly from God and was answerable only to God..."
"...She died shortly thereafter, leaving the boy's grandparents to care for him and providing a substantial inheritance for his future. A number of different guardians wound up watching over the lad until he came of age, among them his great-uncle Milton Pope, who not only invested and added to his nephew's inheritance, securing the young man's financial future for life, but who seems to have been this mentor's mentor..."

"...It was a time like this, during the Vietnam war that Pope Paul VI preached a sermon at the General Assembly of the United Nations. He concluded by saying, "No More War! War No More! War Never Again!" And to that, at such a time as this, I say, Amen!..."
