The Egg congratulates New York's Archbishop Timothy Dolan on his election to the presidency of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

It's no substitute for the red had usually given to archbishops of New York, but perhaps in time Dolan will yet enjoy both honors. Apparently the idea is not to pack the College of Cardinals with bishops from any one nation or region. But, despite a health-care system that is almost as good as Costa Rica's, even American cardinals don't live forever.
