Breaking News from Vatican City: The Pope Resigns

Pope Benedict XVI has resigned effective February 28th, 2013. I found out via Twitter and thought it was a hoax, but it's confirmed by the NY Times here.

When visiting last fall, I wanted to hear him speak, but the timing didn't work out.  Now, I'll be watching with the rest of the world to see who replaces him.
