 New Pope and Papal Smoke Signals in the 21 Century

Since Papal succession is usually after the death of the Pope, I found it much stranger in the year 2013 for the Vatican to be using the traditional smoke signal to let the world know that a new Pope had been selected. Could save on matches to just send a text message Smile

Much as you might laugh if a native american sent a smoke signal for a new casino opening. I had to wonder how they erase a smoke type error, whoops smokes too white.... add more wet stuff... oh no what color are we sending it looks brown ... Laughing out loud

Seeing a live shot on all the media with their lenses focused on the Papal smoke stack seemed ludicrous, since the Pope resigned, we were absent the mourning of the death of the Pontiff, and the somberness of the occasion was absent, no magic.

Anyway, tradition is tradition, but the smoke signal is just one more sign of hanging on to things that were the only way to do it thousands of years ago....
