ROME - Pope Francis has taken a key step in reshuffling the Vatican's bureaucracy by replacing his much-criticized top aide with a career Vatican diplomat who has seen service on three continents. The Vatican said Saturday that Archbishop Pietro Parolin, 58, currently nuncio in Venezuela, will take office as Vatican secretary of state, the pope's prime minister, on Oct. 15, replacing Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, 78. Bertone, appointed in 2006 by Pope Benedict XVI, had been due to step down, and the pope, by choosing Parolin as his replacement, will please Vatican diplomats who had complained that Bertone blocked their access and concentrated power in Rome in the hands of a group of handpicked prelates from his native Liguria.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, turned down by Bill Walsh and turned off by Buddy Ryan, ended their coaching search where it began--with Richard Williamson. Hugh Culverhouse, the Buccaneers' owner, named Williamson as the Tampa Bay coach Monday, ending a two-month search for Ray Perkins' successor. When Perkins was fired on Dec. 3, Williamson was named interim coach for the Buccaneers' final three games. He was considered the longshot in the field as Culverhouse searched for a big name.

Reacting to two weeks of outrage, the Vatican demanded Wednesday that a bishop retract his public statements denying that the Nazis killed millions of Jews in the Holocaust. In addition, the Vatican asserted for the first time that Pope Benedict XVI had been unaware of Bishop Richard Williamson's explosive views when the pontiff lifted the excommunication of the British clergyman and three other bishops who belong to an ultraconservative religious order estranged from the Roman Catholic Church.

When last we left Carol Moseley Braun, she had been crowned by some the political poster child of 1992. Braun, a black woman and holder of an obscure city office in Chicago, came out of nowhere and overcame a shoestring budget to win the Illinois Democratic Senate primary last March, beating two-term incumbent Alan J. Dixon and a free-spending third candidate. Overnight, she became a national media star and a potent political symbol.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took care of the easy part by firing Coach Richard Williamson on Friday. Now comes the hard part--trying to lure Bill Parcells to their team. Hugh Culverhouse, the club's owner, reportedly offered Parcells a five-year deal worth $6.5 million to leave the broadcast booth and return to the sideline, where he led the New York Giants to two Super Bowl victories before resigning after the 1991 Super Bowl.

For months, Carol Moseley Braun cruised along the campaign trail in Illinois wearing a regal smile and riding the history-making prospect of becoming the first black woman elected to the U.S. Senate. Aloft in the polls, the cloud of euphoria unleashed by Braun's upset of incumbent Alan J. Dixon in March's Democratic primary seemed durable enough to shield her through Election Day.

The Vatican stood firm Tuesday on a decision to rehabilitate a Holocaust-denying bishop, even as Jewish leaders warned that the move will set back decades of Roman Catholic overtures to mend strained relations between the two faiths. The Vatican joined Jews and fellow Catholics in condemning the British bishop's assertions that no Jews died in Nazi gas chambers.
