And Springfield Makes Two

In the capital of the Land of Lincoln, it looks like the nation's longest-standing vacancy is set to wrap early tomorrow as well....

From the Springfield Journal-Register:
Officials have scheduled a news conference for 10 a.m. Tuesday to make “an announcement of critical importance to Catholics in the diocese,” according to an advisory issued Monday evening. (The phrase “critical importance” was italicized in the advisory.)

The announcement is to be made in the atrium of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 525 E. Lawrence Ave. It will also be streamed on the diocesan Web page,
For the record, additional corroboration of the buzz has arrived.
