Smoke signals say..

Still no decision from the Vatican.. but here’s a post on it anyway. John at Irish Eagle has an interesting, as always, round-up of reactions to Cardinal Ratzinger’s campaign speech yesterday.. while everyone’s waiting. If you want to watch as well, then there are several options. Vatican TV has a live camera on St Peter’s Square (the live-feed is in a variety of formats) or, by way of the Guardian NewsBlog, the Washington Post provides a close-up view of any new smoke signals.[RealPlayer req.]
Update Part 2 and it’s Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.. now Pope Benedict XVI.. hmmm.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
