At least give the pontiff a chance

Not even a week into the job and the poor Pope has all the usual pundits sorting him out.

A Jesuit: well, keep your friends close, etc. Old: won't last long enough to do anything radical. Gets on the bus to work: good grief, pretty awful, he might actually meet people not rich and famous, shouldn't be allowed.

Give the old boy a chance. He seems quite nice to me, so far.
