More Tidbits

From CNN this morning/afternoon:
  • According to a statement from his office, sounds like President Carter was left out of the official delegation, that's why he is not attending. Hmm...
  • In a break from tradition, bells will toll along with the white smoke when a new Pope is elected. (It is a good idea because apparently that white smoke often looks gray and can be confusing.)
  • The Vatican says the body of Pope John Paul II was NOT embalmed but rather "prepared in an undisclosed way." More on what may have been done.
