Dolan considered a strong candidate for New York

In today's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Tom Heinen collects other media reports on the possibility that Archbishop Dolan would be appointed Archbishop of New York when Cardinal Egan resigns.
A native of Missouri, Dolan, 56, was installed as Milwaukee's archbishop on Aug. 28, 2002. At the time, he was seen by some observers as on the fast track to gain a cardinal's red cap and unlikely to stay here more than a few years.

Well connected to the Vatican, Dolan previously served in Washington, D.C., as secretary to two papal nuncios, the pope's representatives in the United States, and as rector of the Pontifical North American College, an elite seminary in Rome.

Asked about rumors Archbishop Dolan has been walking the halls of the Cousins Center singing the theme from The Jeffersons,
Milwaukee archdiocesan spokeswoman Kathleen Hohl said, "To speculate on a possible successor to Cardinal Egan when he continues to serve the people of the Archdiocese of New York is not appropriate."

"Theme from the Jeffersons"... very good. Too bad that things are still a sitcom here.

We did have a May 2002 episode rather like The Cheever Letters on Seinfeld.
