PapaPaul, here's why they will not.  The citizens of this world are
emotionally spent.  After a week's worth of weeping and wailing and
gnashing their teeth over Diana, I don't imagine that there will be much
fuel left to burn on Mother Teresa.  The global response to her death must
surely be, "oh"; else, the men and brethren of this world must search deep
within for a hidden source of new ululations.

Mother Teresa has gone gently into that good night; the lepers will mourn
her passing.  The media love glamor, not piety.

May God have mercy on her everlasting soul; and, may she rest in peace.
