It is not in the norm for a news organization to report about itself, but when divine intervention is involved, OFF THE WALL news is happy to be abnormal.
Pope Frances, attending his first New Years gala for 2017 made the rounds meeting with dignitaries from around the world. There was talk of world peace, the church's financial status, classic rock music, and current news events. Surrounded by journalist from every corner of the world, he was asked if he had a favorite news organization when it came to getting news he could find nowhere else.
The Pope shaded his eyes with his hand and scanned the crowd before spotting OFF THE WALL news's Dave Taylor by the bar, holding a bottle of Blue Moon. He smiled and quickly gave Taylor a thumbs up. "Ladies and gentlemen," he said, "I get my news from that man over there, Dave Taylor who leads a crack team of reporters from my favorite news source, OFF THE WALL news."
|Thumbs up, Dave!|
OFF THE WALL news readers will remember that last year, the Pope and Taylor spent time together at an AC/DC concert and cruising around Bridgeport at midnight in Taylor's 1963 Chevy convertible. As Taylor put it in a memo later that year, "Friendships are more important than money."
Getting the Pope's blessing may be a testament to that. We hope you follow the Pope's advice and continue to get your news here at OFF THE WALL NEWS.
