Say It Isn't So - Chicago Edition

Marco Tosati, at La Stampa, predicts that the next Archbishop of Chicago will be Bishop Thomas Olmsted of Phoenix - "un candidato forte." One wishes the other bishop in Arizona, +Gerald Kicanas of Tucson, was young enough to return to Chicago as the Windy City's next archbishop, but he isn't. I suspect the Congregation for Bishops will be looking elsewhere for this selection. If Cardinals Burke and Rigali were still on the Congregation, +Olmsted would certainly be a leading candidate. But, they aren't and he isn't.
