Predicting A Win From The Bottom Of The Ninth

The recent surprise announcement of Spanish bishops of the Catholic Church in support of condom use to halt the spread of AIDS caused an uproar amongst the faithful around the world. Most have treated the debate with earnestness and thoughtfulness. Some have resorted to the absurd:

Debate in Spain on the use of condoms to prevent the spread of Aids turned to farce yesterday when an 82-year-old Vatican loyalist vowed to die without ever using one.

Manuel Fraga, the regional premier of Galicia and a former minister under Franco, backed the Vatican's stance against condoms.

"I have spent my life telling the truth without condoms and I plan to die without ever having worn one,'' he said.

How tough do you suppose that will be?
