Today's Factoid

According to our friends at Knight-Ridder, the most popular name chosen by newly elected popes is...."John."

Very original.

23 popes have been named after the "intelligent" Beatle.

Followed by John we have:

Gregory.........15
Clement.........14
Innocent........13
Leo.............13
Pius............12
Stephen.........10

Followed by:

Moe.......................6
Rinaldo...................3
Bruce (the Magnificent)...2
Ringo.....................1

I predict that the next Pope will be an Italian and as a slap-back to the secular media who think they can call the tune, he will have one of those intimidating names, like Brutefaccia or Maloccio.
