Anyone else disappointed it's over so quickly? I was hoping for at least a week. :(

Scola eh? Nothing says capturing the hearts and minds of millions of young people and moving on from its troubled past then electing another Pope that has one foot in the grave

Man I just can't stop thinking of Jim Gaffigan acting like a kid in his backyard pretending to grow up and be the Pope. "He's the best Pope ever!"

Hasn't been announced yet.

Perhaps Columbia has spies within the Vatican walls? 8-)

BBC is talking a lot about Scola as well.

I wonder if, when they are elected, they come up on stage a la the academy awards.

I think the people saying Scola are misled, if only because I highly doubt this is something that would be "leaked" to the public.

This is taking so long, the new Pope will die before taking office.
