...by the looks of things.
German cardinal elected new pope
Joseph Ratzinger is Pope Benedict XVI
Once the archbishop of Munich, Germany, and for many years prefect of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith, Ratzinger, 78, was one of the most powerful men in the Vatican and is widely acknowledged as a leading theologian.
Ratzinger, who turned 78 on Saturday, served for 20 years as John Paul II's chief theological adviser.
As a young priest he was on the progressive side of theological debates but shifted to the right after the student revolutions of 1968.
In the Vatican, he has been the driving force behind crackdowns on liberation theology, religious pluralism, challenges to traditional moral teachings on issues such as homosexuality, and dissent on such issues as women's ordination.
I guess they decided against the e-route.
