With world leaders heading to the United Nations in NYC for the General Assembly, it does present the occasion for some one-on-one discussions. And as the White House made clear, at the request of Russian President Putin, he and President Obama will do just that on Monday, with Topics A being the Ukraine, but there is also that matter of Russia’s increased military presence in Syria. Obama hasn’t seen much reason to meet with Putin, unless the Russian leader seems open to change his handling of these matters, so this meeting request may be a sign that the door is opening. We should know soon enough. And Capitol Hill is till reverberating from House Speaker Boehner’s announcement that he’s leaving Washington at the end of October.

Pope Francis urged hundreds of thousands of the faithful gathered Sunday for the biggest event of his U.S. visit to be open to “miracles of love,” closing out his joyful six-day trip with a message of hope for families, consolation for victims of child sexual abuse and a warning to America’s bishops. The wide Benjamin Franklin Parkway overflowed with the jubilant, who stood in line for hours and endured airport-style security checks to see history’s first pope from the Americas celebrate an open-air Mass in the birthplace of the United States.
