Pope 2.0

Ok. It’s not 2.0, but many people alive to day have known only one pope: John Paul II is the second John Paul, but there have been thousands of predecessors. Finding an accurate number is difficult, but these guys might be able to help:
The Pope Blog: Pope Unconscious, But Not In Coma

So, given the fact that for many people have never known another Pope, I’m going to call the next one Pope 2.0. It’s a new tradition. Get over it.

CNN introduces the Papal prospects I love this though: this is the first Pope chosen in the post-apocalyptic CNN era. I suspect someone will blog the election (and if they don’t I will) but this CNN video of Paula Zahn introducing the papal prospects makes me chuckle. Paula Zahn? Doesn’t she usually interview people like Bono and the dearly departed Johnny Cochrane.

We do live in an enlightened era.

My favourite list of Popes is this one.
