If only it were an anti-war demonstration 

No one knows for sure, but everywhere in the media I'm reading the estimates of the global TV audience watching the Pope's funeral running into billions.

Trust our public broadcaster, Radio Australia, to do the reverse loaves and fishes and shrink the occasion:
"Pope John Paul the second has been buried in a crypt beneath St Peter's Basilica after a momentous Vatican funeral, watched by tens of millions around the world."
Kind of in the same league as the finale of the "American Idol."
