This is a headline from the official Chinese news agency Xinhua announcing Terry Schiavo's death. According to this website:, and confirmed by C, it literally reads: "American female plant person dies."
No word yet on how the pope will be characterized, though the PRC does not recognize the Vatican and, just as it has a bogus Dali Lama, it has a token "Pope." And in a quirky spinoff ... the head of the Hong Kong Catholics is a fellow named Bishop Zen or Zen Ze-kiun (Bishop Joseph Zen when he's using his English moniker).
