A new pope has been chosen! Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been selected and has taken the name Pope Francis.
John Hockenberry, PLEASE stop saying "Pope Francis the First" -- he is just Pope Francis. He won't become Francis the First until, long after he is dead, possibly centuries later, there comes to be a Francis the Second. Until then, it's just Pope Francis. Thanks.
Dear Mr. Hockenberry,I am writing to expresss my deep displeasure in allowing a caller to your program to call Pepe Francis a homosexual.At best, you coud have prevented the airing by using the delay feature in live broadcasts. You also should have dressed down the ignorant caller by not allowing such stupidity to be aired without telling the caller how inapprpriate he was. You have lost a listener.Sincerly,Vincent DeRossi
