Maureen Dowd from her column in todays editions of The New York Times on the election of Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger as Pope Benedict XVI: "For American Catholics - especially women and Democratic pro-choice Catholic pols - the cafeteria is officially closed."Are these the women Dowd is referring to?
