Re: [mythsoc] John Paul II
- The plays of Karol Wojtyla have been collected (as Amazon.com so
helpfully informed me on Saturday); however, they appear to be out of
print and the price has suddenly spiked (Oh, if only I had bought a
volume when it was on sale for a mere $50...)
Remember (as I told my class today) that the election of a pope is not
the sort of election we're used to in America. The ballot isn't
limited to just the people on the lists that keep getting tossed
around; those are just the men who are percieved to be the most likely
choices. Historically, though, such lists have been poor predictors;
once the Cardinals go into seclusion, all bets are off.
I still haven't found one website that gives satisfactory details on
the process of election and the profiles of the papibili, but I'm
about to settle in for a nice concentrated search, and I'll be sure to
share if I come up with a good one.

- They made a movie of one of the plays, _The Jeweller's Shop_. It
starred Burt Lancaster and Olivia Hussey. Not a brilliant film, as I
recall, but quite nice.

- I love it that this group's first (or, at least, second) reaction to the
Pope's death should be: Buy Books!
It's so like us :)
It has been speculated that the Pope who succeeds John Paul will be named
