The vultures are circling ...

What's the official definition of a vulture? What is the most prominent characteristic that everyone in Western culture associates with these birds? I just realized that the press officially qualifies as well.

Six years ago, TV stations started renting terraces and other places in Rome, to ensure they got first dibs on, get this, the last picture of the Pope.

Such disrespect for the dignity of a human being. If I ever meet any of the people involved in this matter, I'd love to smack them heavily on the right cheek. Yes, with the back of my hand, just as in the Bible.

There's one upside to it, though: There have been entire houses in Rome who could afford extensive renovations using the money TV stations have paid them in recent years.
