We continue to watch the smoke from a distance, get it? The Sanford Townsend Band song Smoke from a Distance? Anyway, the 115 voting cardinals at the Vatican have failed for the third time to elect a new pope. But have no fear, two votes per day will take place daily until a pontiff is agreed upon.
Back in 2005 when Pope Benedict was elected, it was on vote number four and sources close to the Vatican believe there is a good chance of that happening this time around. Thousands have gathered around the Sistine Chapel awaiting the site of white smoke. As we wait from a distance.
