Live in B'more: Testing 1,2,3...

 | 

Good morning from Baltimore.

The bishops are testing the new electronic voting system. The test question: "Will you play golf between now and the end of the year? Vote 1. for Yes, and Vote 2. for No." (Only 25 voted yes to 207 No!)

Soon the fireworks will start. Some bishops reported receiving text messages urging them to vote against Bishop Kicanas, the current vice-president. He is opposed by a variety of right wing groups.

Stay tuned.
