Pope Dave I  ?  Dave Taylor has been
asked to be Interim Pope. Dave is shown
here as he practices Pope like moves.
It's official Pope Benedict XVI is resigning as of February 28th.  The Vatican, taken by surprise is now on scramble to find a replacement.  In a rare move Vatican officials have contacted a close friend and confident of Pope Benedict and asked him to be Interim Pope.  Channel 1 News's Dave Taylor was shocked and surprised upon receiving the call from Cardinal X (who wants his name to be kept private) asking him to come to Rome and become Interim Pope.  Taylor talked to the Cardinal for over seven minutes and told the official he would give it some thought and get back to him by Sunday.
Taylor told his bosses at Channel 1 News that he would be the first to admit that he hasn't even been to mass lately, but he would do his part if needed.  He borrowed his friend Father Damian's frock and had a picture taken of himself for the Cardinals in Rome.  In the picture he is showing how he would give out a blessing.  First word back from those who saw the picture online was "comforting."  Others were reported to say Dave's image made them feel "comfortably numb" and put them at peace.
As of this story Taylor is still undecided and plans to go out Saturday night for a night of good cheer and hopes to decide sometime late that night.  Channel 1 News will report the story as it happens.
