Me On ‘Google News’ Yesterday,
The Day The Pope Got Elected. Posting This For Posterity
March 14, 2013.


I have had more interviews, Thursday and Friday, March 14 & 15, post the election of the pope. Canada’s ‘Global News’ that featured me quite a bit this past week had another article quoting me at the start. I did my first real press interview in 1983 when my first book, ‘SNA: Theory and Practice‘, came out. Since then I have realized the obvious advantageous of striking a rapport with reporters. They have a hard job. They are continually facing dead-lines. They don’t have much time to do all they have to do. IF you are nice to them and help them out, they invariably give you ‘star’ billing. So, I have had 30 years to work on this.

I had my second interview with ‘The Citizen’, from Laconia, yesterday, at home, at 4pm. Same reporter as last time. John Koziol. As I said then, he humbles me. A very impressive writer. It was an uplifting interview. He knows how to ask questions to draw the subject out. That is fun. Keep me on my toes. I am on the front page, right at the top, of ‘The Citizen’ today. This is what makes John so amazing. He didn’t leave here till 5:30 pm. But he still filed the story. Impressive.

So here is Google news today, March 16, 2013 — if you bang in ‘Anura Guruge’.

This is for the grand kids, if I get any.

My Job As The Lightning Rod For ‘The Next Pope’ Is Done. I Did Pretty Damn Well Too! Got Everything BUT Name RIGHT.

Click to ENLARGE. Yes, Bergoglio WAS on my published ‘top 10’ list in ‘The Next Pope 2011’, page 4. That is indisputable.


So, lets go through what I did get right:

1/ I did list Jorge Mario Bergoglio as one of my ‘top 10’, though he was my last. But, better than those that did not have him at all in their lists. Proof: pages 4 & 29 of ‘The Book‘.

2/ I said on December 6, 2010, I said: “The Next Pope Is Also Likely To Be Over 75”. Proof: this post & page 7 of ‘The Book‘.

3/ On April 20, 2010, I said: “The Next Pope: Non-European, Non-Curial With ‘Clean Hands”. Proof: this post & page 11 of ‘The Book‘.

4/ I adamantly maintained that the next pope will not be from Africa, Asia or the U.S.A. Proof: this ‘pigs will fly’ post at a minimum & page 12 of ‘The Book‘.

5/ I was beyond categorical that the next pope will not be ‘Peter anything‘. Proof: this post as a start & page 221 of ‘The Book‘.

6/ I did foresee that the new pope might assume a brand new name. Proof: page 226 of ‘The Book‘.

Find me anybody else who got as much right … in published, verifiable form.

Given that I have four healthy kids, two of them over 20, I assume that there is a possibility that I may end up with a grandchild or two — though most likely way after I am dead and gone. This post is mainly for them, if they ever decide to Google me to see what the heck their grandfather did — assuming they are ever even told about me. I just want them to know that I wasn’t as much of a duffer as everybody would have made me out to be.

So this is what came up if you typed my name into ‘Google News’ (no, no … not Google search) yesterday. And this does not include the articles in the local papers like ‘The Citizen‘ or ‘The Baysider‘.

As Deanna, of late, loves to point out, it is not much, but it does include: Wall Street Journal, ABC News, National Review, Die Welt and La Stampa.

This was fun. 1pm to 2pm today, as the conclave, was taking place.

It was a real-time ‘interview’ with typed in answers.

Never done one before. They have special software for it called: ‘Scribble’. Since, I gather, it was so ‘successful’, they are keeping it open.

I know we are scheduled to do another live session when the new pope is elected. So, stay tuned. That could be Friday.
