Some feared that he'd never make it, but Pope John Paul II is headed for America after all. The Vatican said today that the 74-year-old pontiff would make a four-day trip to New York, Newark and Baltimore beginning Oct. 4, a year after he cancelled the same trip because of hip replacement surgery. After terrorist threats during the pope's January visit to the Philippines, U.S. officials are preparing heavy security measures.
