Here in Washington, we're all getting ready for the pope's visit tomorrow (Vatican One lands this afternoon). Streets will be closed off, buses re-routed, and thousands of people are expected to converge along the route of the popemobile. Pope Benedict XVI plans to visit the ballpark here in D.C., and Yankee Stadium in New York (one National League, one American League, to be fair). He'll hold public Mass on Sunday. And there are stops along the way over the course of six days. So many plans and logistics and details come into play with a visit like this, and Sewell Chan gives an inside peek in an article in The New York Times. Chan joins us on the show today. And we'll talk with Michael McGough, who wrote the piece, "Papal Dress Code" for the Los Angeles Times. Every detail of the pope's clothing contains meaning of some kind, and he'll tell us what to look for once Pope Benedict arrives.
