Personal disinterest in religion notwithstanding, this is a pretty stunning fact.
Same here, this is history in the making.

I hope this isn't all they talk about on the news. When the last Pope died the coverage drove me crazy.

Especially since this circus will last until late March.

I have to admit I'm interested in the politics behind this decision, though.

And that is exactly why we should pay attention to them. They are crooks, but influential crooks nonetheless.

The media coverage will be excessive as always, especially since the Catholic Church has always been the Jersey Shore of organized religion. Which is quite an insult... for Jersey Shore.
