Pope Benedict XVI

via CNN (and a tip from my comments):
VATICAN CITY (CNN) -- Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger of Germany has been selected by the Roman Catholic church as the new pope.
. . .

"Dear brothers and sisters, after the great Pope John Paul II, the cardinals have elected me -- a simple, humble worker in the vineyard of the Lord,"
9-2 odds and the under.

Not to sound morbid, but he is 78. So we will see this sequence at least once more in my lifetime.


UPDATE: Kathy is frustrated, Doug is pleasantly surprised.
