Vatican Mystery Theater

The butler did it.

Took a leak... err, took information and leaked it.  It's a big news story because the world believes the Vatican to be cloaked in secrecy just about everything, forgetting that there are a lot of Italians working there who aren't as organized as the rest of the modern world - or something like that.  No offense to Italians BTW - I love them.  Here's the story if you don't know it already - it seems to be an obligatory post for Catholic bloggers...
An on-again-off-again scandal that the Italian press has called VatiLeaks burst into the open on Friday with the arrest by Vatican gendarmes of a man, identified in news reports as Paolo Gabriele, the pope’s butler, who the Vatican said was in possession of confidential documents and was suspected of leaking private letters, some of which were addressed to Pope Benedict XVI. - NYT
Workplace espionage. 

There is a "Maria" involved in the case as well - which fits with my music video I posted earlier today:  'She's so fine, there's no tellin' where the money went..."  It's always about the money, isn't it?
