aso-pope

The unpopular Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso, a member of Japan’s tiny Roman Catholic minority, met with Pope Benedict on Tuesday. As his first stop during a trip to attend July 8-10 summit of G8 leaders in Italy, Taro went to the Vatican, gave the pope a Sony digital video camera (looks like the HDR-XR500V) and discussed various topics such as Africa, Christianity in Japan, and the global economic crisis with him. Taro is the first Japanese Prime Minister to visit the Vatican in 10 years.

I sure hope the Pope has at least a dual core PC or better for HD video rendering.
