Funny as hell, but I don't know that I'd call it 'important' in the scheme of things.

I think it is very important in this day and age.
It is a precedent giving comedians the right to joke about religion, even if it offends certain adherents to the religion in question.

No kidding. If the young folks are talking about Leonardo - that's either Dicaprio or some Ninja Turtle.

I would submit there are plenty of reasons to be talking about da Vinci outside of Dan Brown's idiocy.

If someone who has read Deception Point still doesn't find Dan Brown's knowledge impressive, then please come forth.
