OK, so I know that this election of a new Pope is a big historical event and all, but seriously, how many hours can CNN fill by talking about white smoke and black smoke, and potential candidates, and what the cardinals are eating for lunch, etc? It is all Pope, all the time. Isn't there any other news happening in the world? I know I sound like a curmudgeon, but we have VERY limited TV in English, and the weather is really crappy again today, so I wouldn't mind lounging on the couch and watching a little TV. Here's a novel idea-- maybe I'll read a book instead!
