About a month ago, political analyst Chuck Todd spoke on MSNBC. To paraphrase, he noted that “you go into the homes of Central Valley (CA) Latinos and you’ll see two portraits on the wall: one of the Pope and the other of JFK.”
I saw a portrait of JFK, in a Hispanic house, though I don’t remember seeing any photos of the Pope. There were Matchbooks in that house, too. It’s been a long while.
