Kenny Rogers song, “Know when to hold them and fold them” applies to Pope Benedict retiring; too bad politicians can’t follow in his thinking which was he was too old to do the job and he needed to turn over his duties to a younger person.

Too many people hang around too long thinking no one can do their job as well as they think they can. Nonsense! There is always someone who can do the job as well or better; anyone is replaceable.

The Pope welds as much power and influence as the President of the United States; it’s not easy to give up that power; the Pope did and I am proud of him for doing that.

  1. The pope wields more power and influence than the current president of the United States because he had sense enough to realize that he could no longer do the job.
