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.
Another Update The official biography of Cardinal Ratzinger(soon to be updated no doubt), from the Guardian NewsBlog’s comprehensive collection of links – well worth a look BTW.
