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‘.
