The BBC says:

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger has been elected as the pope - the head of the world's 1.1 billion Roman Catholics.

Taking the name Pope Benedict XVI, the 78-year-old German has appeared on the balcony of the Vatican palace.

Hopefully he does not turn out to be as bad as his form book would imply. The world does not need yet another religion run by fundamentalists, and with policies on population control and AIDs driven by medieval orthodoxy. Fortunately he is old, so should not be around that long.
