    The Pope broke with tradition and bowed to Muslim Queen Rania of Jordan while she and her husband, King Abdullah, visited the Pope at the Vatican. Protocol usually dictates that visitors to the Vatican bow to him, not the other way around.

    [‘Fruitvale Station’] explains things like the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the problems with stop and search, and is just more poignant.

We had to look out for him. Every team I’ve played on - five different teams - there was someone gay in the locker room."
