Meet the New Boss

Benny 16

We got a new pope. Well, at least my McCatholic bacon-loving ass does. Benedict in latin means "blessed one." Did you know that Benedict was the third most commonly used name as Pope before yesterday? John (23) and Gregory (16) were the most popular. Clement, Innocent, and Leo are not far behind. Odd names right?

The bookies in Europe saw it coming. Both Cardinal Ratizger and the name Benedict were the heavy favorites... and both turn out to be correct.
