The president is dead. The president of the Mormon church, that is. Thomas S. Monson, the 16th president of the church headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, died last night (1/2) mountain time (early this morning eastern time), "of issues relative to old age." According to the news reports in the heavily-Mormon state, the heir apparent to the 90-year-old is Russell Nelson, "next in line" in terms of seniority in the church leadership. Nelson, a former cardiologist, is 93. Hey, makes sense to me!

i don't understand why any organization wants leaders of that advanced age-they might be out of touch. and that includes congress and the popes.poor john paul 2 looked like they needed to prop him up with a stick after awhile.
