Chronicle: Popemobile Industry Feeling God's Wrath

In the newspaper business (now an oxymoron), there's nothing quite as jarring as placing the wrong photo next to a story. We've given the San Francisco Chronicle a ribbing for this before, and, this morning, the paper earned it again.

Yes, the photo accompanying the Web story “Detroit's Totaled” and asking what car GM will drop is of that renowned automobile maven Pope Benedict XVI. Apparently the auto industry is in such a dark place, not even God's man on Earth can help now.

By the way, no surprise here, but the Pope apparently prefers German cars. That being said, his personal car appears to be of the Swedish variety. No news yet on whether his guidance is being sought by the Big Three.
