Vatican City Gig?

I notice that yet again Leonard is missing out Vatican City. I would like to know, Jarkko, if this is simply a logistical issue or whether Leonard has a religious basis for discriminating against those of us who live there? I really hope for a serious and respectful answer not a "humorous" or flippant response.

Also I request you to post Leonard's cell-phone number here as I think he would like me to call him about the new Leonard Cohen Vatican City Fan Club. Just guess who is the Secretary!!!

Similar requests have come in from Mecca, Dharmsala (hq for the Dalai Lama), Jerusalem, Kiev (eastern orthodox), Karskei (international Buddhist hq), Tao-Chen (Taoist) and London (hq for Anglicans/Episcopalians). All will be considered without discrimination. In India, Hare Krishna devotees have been observed chanting "Leonard Cohen" instead of their usual chants! Scientologists have announced a name change to "Cohentologists."

I love your reply goldstey! I've heard here that the Aboriginal community here is also complaining about Leonard not performing on top of Ayers Rock as it is their most sacred place...

Maybe we could get the Pope to establish a charity for those of (even if Jewish) who have bankrupted ourselves in order to witness the third coming?

I've heard he's very pope-ular in the Vatican City.

I believe he will do Rome in 2010 - where is the most spectacular venue?

I hope he does 1st January 2010 in Vatican City or Rome because certain Cohenites will be there!

I think anywhere in Rome would be beautiful. It would even come close to the beautiful Piazza san Marco in Venice. In front of St. Peter's would be amazing!

Marisha, I was curious as to what geographic area exactly was covered by the Vatican City so I just googled it. I see you are one of a population of 800 in the Vatican City - wow that's special. How many of the 800 are transient residents, and how many live there. Very interesting...

Goldstei, you are a wild and crazy guy for someone with a truncated cyber name. :D Heaven protect us from what you would dream up if you were ever able to use all nine letters of your name. Rock on, Bob. I enjoy your posts.
