New Bishop for Mobile, AL, replacing Archbp. Oscar Lipscomb: it's Bp. Thomas Rodi ("Ro-DEE"), currently of Biloxi.

What's he like? Una Voce Southern Mississippi said last fall:
Bishop Thomas Rodi of the Diocese of Biloxi, stated in response to an inquery, that Father Jon Noone, Pastor of Annunciation Parish in Kiln, Mississipppi, will begin offering the Traditional Latin Mass on the First Sunday of Lent, 2008.
So, you know, it ain't his first ro-DEE-o.
