JU: Actually, I don't know exactly who Pio nono was, and can't find much about him on the web.

me: Pio Nono=Italian pronunciation of Pius PP IX, the Pope of the First Vatican Council

p s=Rome was before Roe vs Wade, Rum was before heavy alliance with doctors, Rebellion was before affirmative action, psychiatry and social workers.
