Istanbul or Constantinople?

(Sounds like a song to me!) Pope Benedict is fixin’ to hit the road.

PALM HARBOR – Pope Benedict XVI has agreed to make a historic visit to the headquarters of the Eastern Orthodox Church in Istanbul, the Orthodox patriarch announced Thursday.
The trip, which has not been scheduled, will be the first time a Roman Catholic pope has made such a visit since 1979. It could go a long way toward healing a schism that has existed for nearly 1,000 years.
