A new Pope

What a fascinating process, this search for a new Pope!  Admittedly, I am not Catholic, but the whole process is amazing. What other nominating/selection/election process is anything like it?

First, we get this exclusive group of cardinals together, close the doors, lock the windows, take away their cellphones and require them to pray for guidance on which among them they should vote for.  Then, they scribble their vote on a peice of paper, and one by one, walk it up to the ballot box.  Three people count the votes and burn them immediately, with black smoke if no one gets the required votes, and white if the new Pope is found!  Wow!
There's just nothing quite like it, to see people watching a smoke stack to see what color the smoke might be!

Keep an ear to WHBY, as we will break in with coverage once the smoke goes white.
