One nice thing about the Rome time difference

For the first few days, at least, the papal conclave votes are happening at a schedule that eminently suits me - the ballots for the morning votes burn at around noon Rome time, which puts it well before the morning news shows here; the evening burn happens at around 7 p.m. Rome time (it was an hour later than that today), or noon or 1 p.m. CDT, and then they're done for the day. Meaning I don't have to worry - for the next few days, at least - that they'll choose the new pope right at the press deadline...

(Oh - black smoke today, just as expected for the first vote...)
