Seriously? The Pope Flies Commercial

American news media love few things more than catchy nicknames.  In the pantheon of catchy nicknames, “Shepherd One,” certainly does the trick.

Awaiting the arrival of Pope Francis on American soil this week news anchors across the country, and around the world, could not stop talking about Shepherd One, the plane that carries the pope.

It’s a bit of a misnomer since the pope doesn’t actually own his own plane. Shepherd One isn’t a private plane. Rather, the name actually refers to whatever commercial plane the pope happens to be traveling on at the time.
Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment
