White smoke! New pope!

We'll know who it is shortly.

UPDATE: (sorry, was on the phone): We have a pope! Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina is now Pope Francis. First ever pope from South America.

Maybe he'll grant me a reprieve from my Lenten commitment to give up alcohol til Easter. I could use a beer today.
