Too bad there wasn’t much going on this week. Where to start?

Can we all agree, that Pope Francis has done very little to diminish his stellar reputation during his visit this week?

Can we all agree that even when he’s made statements you disagrees with, it’s tough to argue?

Can we all agree that, even excluding John Boehner, he will have a major impact on the social and political debate long after he has left?

Can we all agree that many Californians are still confused about why he would want to wade into the debate over Juniperro Serra by making him a saint?

Can we all agree that while Speaker of the House John Boehner, credits, at least some of his decision to step down to The Pope’s visit, it was more a question of timing?

Can we all agree that Mr. Boehner’s decision really won’t change much?

Can we all agree that we will be having the same conversation about a government shutdown later this year?

Can we all agree that The President’s ability to get Chinese leader Xi Jinping to announce a cap and trade plan for China increases the pressure on Congress to actually address climate change? As if he Pope’s comments were not enough?

Can we all agree that we will all remain a bit skeptical about Chinese promises to end hacking of commercial websites, until we can confirm the practice has ended?

Can we all agree that US businesses should not relax since there are many countries who are more than willing to continue the assault?

Can we all agree that it was nice to see that The Pope was at least able to keep Donald Trump off the front page for a few days?

Can we all agree that we didn’t even know that controversial Kentucky clerk Kim Davis was a Democrat? The GOP is welcome to have her.

Can we all agree that while The Pope’s visit back East was nice, this weekend’s visit by India’s Prime Minister is a much bigger deal in Silicon Valley?

Can we all agree that regardless of who you root for, Yogi Berra’s passing is a sad day for baseball?

Can we all agree that it’s nice to know we can all sing “Happy Birthday” whenever we want and not be forced to pay royalties.

Can we all agree that we are slightly incredulous that VW thought they could sell 11 million cars with software that deliberately deceived everyone, but felt they could escape detection?

Can we all agree that even in a capitalist society 5000% price increases for medication is not a good move?

Can we all agree that no one will miss Scott Walker and his campaign for president?

Can we all agree that this was a good week for presidential candidates to announce controversial decisions, because no one is paying attention? Like Hillary opposing the Keystone pipeline project?

Can we all agree that if you are a federal employee worrying about identity theft, things got a lot worse this week when the government announced that fingerprint records have also been stolen?

Can we all agree that it’s nice to know President Obama will meet with Mr. Putin, but we’re not sure how much good it will do? Have we seen his soul yet?
