Rome's mayor said Monday that he was yanking the city's sponsorship of July's Gay Pride events, which the Vatican doesn't want taking place during the Holy Year called by Pope John Paul II. The decision follows an appeal by a top Italian cardinal to move the event elsewhere. Prime Minister Giuliano Amato has called the scheduling of Gay Pride week during Holy Year "inopportune" and added that "unfortunately," Italy's constitution doesn't allow the gathering to be banned.

You'll forgive Jessica Daniel if she's been lacking a little Christmas spirit. Her bedroom resembles a tornado's wake. And there's been so much packing to cram in between the rehearsals, swim practice, yearbook preparations and finals in her advanced-placement and honors classes at Sunny Hills High. Besides, she's been under the weather. But today, 14-year-old Jessica will get some much-needed holiday down time. On a plane. With a hundred or so other kids. Bound for Rome.
