Hot Pope Action!

Shhh- they're picking a pope!

The Vatican is gearing up for the selection of a new pope, and the usual veil of secrecy surrounding the papal conclave will be sorely tested by technological advances in espionage and communications. Scrutiny will be intense as the pressure mounts to choose a reformer instead of a conservative (don't hold your breath) and the first non-European pope (don't hold your breath here either). The Vatican thinks that they have everything under control, but the church's grasp on technology has traditionally been tenuous at best - and security experts think that the crucifix crew is in over their heads.
