what more than Mardi Gras in it's hey day?

According to the World Youth Day dis-organiser, the crowds are going to be larger than Sydney has ever seen.

Um like what?

Bigger than Mardi Gras in the 80s?

Bigger than the Sydney 2000 Olympics?

I don't think so, based on the number of visas given this World Youth day event is going to be a dismal failure.

And of course the Cardinal is under attack on all sides for misleading and covering up sexual abuse in the Church. Resign Pell Resign!
