The second Rome

"In 1054 the Great Schism split the Catholic Church between these two cities."

Seriously? This was a Daily Double?

Rome and Constantinople, duh.

Couldn't they have asked about the Third Rome (and there will not be a fourth!)?

(That one's Moscow, by the way. And the saying inspired one Russian pundit to write a column arguing that Putin should be allowed to run again in 2008 called "A Third Term - and There Will Not Be a Fourth"...)
