Hey, Cletus

I'd always heard the name Cletus as a red-necked yokel.  A fixture on the Simpsons TV show.  A generic name for any yahoo who screws up with a firearm.

Turns out, that name has a much more storied past.  The third pope.  Ever.

Today is his feast day, just so ya know.  Apparently the Romans didn't like that whole "Christian" thing and cut off his head.

That kind of ties in with how Christians are treated in the Middle East today, doesn't it?
