Happy Birthday, Benedict!

Today is Pope Benedict’s birthday, and he’s celebrating it with his first trip to America. So what do you get a man who has everything? Perhaps an i-tunes gift card? He could use it for his 2-gig, engraved i-pod nano. Or, as Catholic clergy take vows of poverty, you could just buy yourself some cool pope swag in his honor. You can get official commemorative gear from his first ever US visit. Or some not-so official gear.
