How to Hack the Papal Election (Hint: It's pretty hard)

Bruce Schneier seems to have Donald Knuth's "problem" of always thinking in his own idiom - this time, about how secure the Papal election is, and how to subvert its results. The general conclusion -  it's easier to steal the U.S. presidential election than the Papal election.

My favorite quote: " . . . when an election process is left to develop over the course of a couple thousand years, you end up with something surprisingly good."
