The 'Pope' headline was a disgrace and an insult

I was shocked to see your headline, "Oak Park gets new Pope." This is the most disrespectable thing I have ever seen your newspaper do! You not only have offended the Catholic people but also the Polish community. Did you think that was supposed to be a "pun on words" and funny? The leader of the Catholic Church died and you insinuate that Oak Park has its own pope. Shame on you.

I can't imagine that this paper, editor and writer thought that this was a good headline. If the elected official's name was Smith, would the headline have read "OP gets new Smith?" You are a disgrace and make me ashamed that I am part of the Oak Park/River Forest community. I still can't believe that you did that.

"OP Gets New Pope?"

That headline is truly tasteless and offensive.
