So this is about the Papacy. I can’t decide whether there needs to be a Pope Sixtus VI to make a perfectly complete set, or whether it’s perfect there were only five Sixtuses. And yes, I understand, it’s not a problem I am likely to need to deal with. But, you know, the world is complicated and weird and I’m still looking for work. And they’ll need a new Pope someday. So, if I were to become Pope, I would need a regnal name. I mean I guess I could go out as “Pope Joseph” but I feel like that’s probably a name already busy enough in Catholic lore, you know, between the Technicolor-Dreamcoat guy and the father-of-Jesus thing. Oh, and Arimathea. I know that name too. (The name is Joseph.) So would Sixtus VI be improving things or making them worse? Anyway it’s nice to have some problem that it’s okay if I don’t solve for a change.
(Note to self: if I should get the Pope job, check on what some of these earlier Sixtuses did and see if I want to remind anybody of them.)
