Pope Benedict XVI
I was in the shower when they announced that Germany's Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was named Pope. I tried to blog this but Blogger apparently was busy because I imagine other bloggers were blogging the story. I don't have too much to say about the new pope right now except that I wished he chose the name Clement (Quick fact: the last pope named Clement was Clement XIV who was pontiff between 1769 and 1775). To paraphrase the Jeopardy category, for the name alone, I could dig a Pope named Clem. Also, as of 12:39 PM PST, Chick Publications' web site has no response. Bummer.
