Rome-Where everybody knows your name

While all that black smoke suggested that the Papal conclave had forgotten to include a bishop skilled in chimney sweeping, it turns out the decisin-making process was just especially arduous. The Catholic Church, ever immune to the post-Reformation world, made the obvious choice when choosing the successor to Pole John Paul II-They picked a German.

This is a momentous occasion, and I'm sure all the Catholics out there are feeling a little bit light headed with elation, so I just want to clear something up before people start freaking out. New Pope Benedict XVI, nee Joseph Ratzinger is NOT Cliff Clavin from Cheers, nee John Ratzenberger. We all know how those Boston Catholics operate...
