I heard on NPR this morning about a gentleman who bought at auction a VW Bug that belonged to Pope Benedict XVI. He payed $250,000. I assume he bought it because he is a devout Catholic. If that is the case, wouldn't it have been a better use of his money to help, ya know, the poor? It seems to me that his decision to spend an enormous sum of money on a relatively useless souvenir could have been better spent elsewhere. I really don't understand the mindset in a decision like this.
