WASHINGTON - In the northeast corner of the nation's capital, beyond the monuments and museums on the Mall, lies the newest tourist attraction in the nation's capital. Part think tank, part art gallery, part interactive museum, the John Paul II Cultural Center could be described as Port Discovery meets the Vatican. The center, which will open to the public March 22, is a $65 million attempt by admirers of John Paul II to preserve the legacy of the pope who had a role in the fall of the Soviet Union and presided over the Roman Catholic Church as it entered its third millennium.

His knack was for splintering the opposition's attack with a sure foot and often with booming kicks.
