pope benedict xvi

Habemus papam. There is a new pope: Benedict XVI, formerly Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, of Germany, and until now Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

I reckon its good news. Its certainly exciting to watch on TV.

Read about him here. The site has links to a biography, some of his writings, etc.

It doesn't look like I can go to Rome under this Pope. Maybe next one.

I kind of thought they would elect Tracy, perhaps even Vickie.
