Picking a Pope

So the Cardinals are conclaving in Rome. Not sure "conclaving" is a word, but it suits my purpose. In other words they're gathering to choose a new Pope. And Canada even has a papal candidate, eh?

The Catholic Church is beset by problems. It really needs an image update. Wouldn't that be a great reality show? I can see it now "Papal Makeover". Although I'm not sure anything can bring the image of the church into modern day. But with such story lines as sexual abuse and a men-only hierarchy it might be an interesting show to watch.

Hey it seemed to work for Dan Brown and Angels and Demons. And it seems to be working for some editorial cartoonists...

Papal Makeover? Just watched a bit on the news about the people who are responsible for those papal vestments... lots of glitz there! (I could go for some of those red shoes... probably not as comfortable as my Birkenstocks, though.)

I wanted to run, but they said something about not going through confirmation would probably lock me out. Apparently first communion wasn't enough. Oh well.

Men wearing red shoes? No wonder there's a problem among priests. Hey sailor!
nonamedufus said…
Oh, you're bringing back memories, P.J.

The whole idea of cardinals casting votes to elect a new pope seems like a strange process to me. Isn't the pope supposed to be infallible or something? The cardinals should just duke it out in a battle royale. That would be a much tidier process, if you ask me.

Yeah, like extreme cage fighting or something, eh?

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
