As the week draws to a close...

...Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana (above) is the clear leader for next pope on Intrade, Paddy Power and Ladbrokes. (Archbishop Angelo Scola of Italy is in second.)

Will the Catholic Church really select its next pope from Africa?

(Paddy Power has this note on its Web site: If the cardinals elect the First Black Pope, we will refund all losing bets on the Next Pope market. What the heck does that mean?)
