Archdiocese of Milwaukee vacancy

Feel free to comment about this if you have heard anything.  I have heard our Bishop Listecki's name thrown into this group before.

And, lastly, nine months after the archdiocese of Milwaukee fell vacant on Dolan's Eastward move, a recent spike of buzz suggests that the appointment of the Beer City's next archbishop could be named within the next fortnight.

While no single front-runner has risen to the top, the interregnum's birthed a lake's worth of speculation, the most common and credible of which has narrowed the field to a Pack of Four: Bishops Gerald Kicanas of Tucson (currently vice-president of the US bishops), Blase Cupich of Rapid City, Jerome Listecki of LaCrosse and Milwaukee's administrator, Auxiliary Bishop William Callahan OFM Conv., a close confidant of Dolan's who attended last week's Al Smith Dinner in New York as the archbishop's guest.
