The papal conclave

The excitement is about to begin in Vatican City, as the Catholic Church's College of Cardinals convenes to select a replacement for Pope Benedict XVI.

The outgoing pope spoke the other day about having felt that "God was asleep" during portions of his (the pope's) reign, which doesn't seem like the sort of thing God should have been doing, though if he's omniscient and all-powerful, it really shouldn't matter, should it?

Roberto De Vido writes cartoons and comics about politics, sports (and life) from a small fishing and farming village an hour southwest of Tokyo.
