The Dennis Rodman world tour, fresh off the visit to North Korea, is making a stop in Rome. Per The Atlantic Wire, “basketball star and self-appointed diplomat Dennis Rodman has decided on his next mission for the greater good of mankind: meeting the new pope.”
Hard to say what, exactly, the missions of these trips are. Some people cry foul, calling the Worm an attention-seeker with no real agenda other than keeping his name in circulation. And while that’s definitely the case, why not let this crazy train travel its course? If only because the thought of Rodman breaking bread with the Dalai Lama brings a smile to my face.
