Earth to NY Times, again

The Pope is the head of state for the HOLY SEE, not Vatican City.
Secret Service agents, the pope’s own Swiss Guard security forces and several thousand officers from the New York Police Department will share the daily job of safeguarding the pope, leader of the Roman Catholic Church and the head of state of Vatican City.
Right, just like President Bush is the head of state for the District of Columbia.
The pope, traveling on his jet, Shepherd One, will arrive at Kennedy Airport next Friday morning, the day before the start of the Jewish celebration of Passover.
It's a chartered jet, Sherlock. The Pope/Vatican doesn't own planes.
