Soviets 'behind pope shooting'

Says CNN.

Gee! It took Italians only 25 years to establish. I believe that about 24 years ago even my dog Skippy tried to signal something like this to me. And I have never even had a dog...

Anyway, ordering a Pope rubbed out seems to be a pretty risk-free business. You may die of suspense or boredom (or both) before Italian investigators come to a conclusion.

Unless, of course, you are otherwise occupied - like being a Chairman of Politburo in USSR.

Update: According to an alternative source (see remark by Soccer Dad), my dog may have tried to signal something entirely different than the "KGB dunit" version. I should have listened...
