Nope. More likely to be Italian from Milan. That's where all the money's at.

Probably so. Probably a Cardinal well connected with the Vatican Bank. Pope John Paul I died mysteriously after only a month. The next Pope will be a "friend" of the bank.

Just think - Since the Vatican Bank is loaded with financial assets and most of the world's governments are so corrupt, the catholic church can afford to buy off those governments and enforce their will with a modern form of Holy Office of the Inquisition! They can ordain Dick Cheney to be the Grand Inquisitor!

Ancient Eastern curse says, "may you life in interesting times." Indeed, there are interesting times ahead.
