(Actually, a German website was already reporting that Cardinal Levada was Egan’s sure thing replacement.)
Over the past few days, I heard just about every possible scenario on how Egan’s retirement might play out. Everyone knows someone who heard something.
The big question seems to be: Will Egan’s retirement be announced before the summer or in the fall?
I just hope it’s not before June. I need some rest.
Speaking of which, I’m taking the rest of the week off and may not blog. We’ll see.
