The Only Decent Thing George Bush has Done (or the Pope Needs a Gentle Reminder)

Roosevelt Wilkerson is one of Pinky's friends. In fact, Roosevelt used Pinky's garage for a studio for a few months:
In a library adorned with a painting of the Virgin Mary by Antoniazzo Romano and a large Crucifix sculpted by Giotto, the pope and President George Bush exchanged gifts. The pontiff gave the president a 17th century lithograph of St. Peter's Basillica and a gold Vatican medallion. The president gave the pope a white walking stick crafted by a former homeless man, Dallas artist Roosevelt Wilkerson, a piece of native Texas wood inscribed with the Ten Commandments.
