Pope culture? The pontiff's been in the pop news twice this week. 1.Sweet Georgia Brown! The pope will become "an honorary Harlem Globetrotter" in ceremonies in Chicago on January 5 reports the Chicago Tribune.2. Caped Crusader! The pope's life from boy in Poland to head of the Catholic Church is the subject of a four-volume comic book set that's on sale in Italy. Told by a fictitious lifelong friend, the narrator assures us that "he really wasn't a geek!" and that he loved girls "and danced the waltz, the mazurka, and even the tango."
