Re: Alma Maters

Jonha, my college (Catholic U) used to be totally ashamed of me–and actually made my life a bit difficult while I was there–a tale I should tell in full some day, not because it was me, but because it’s a damned shame any student is threatened by adults empoyed by an institution of higher education because of the “wrong views.” Anyway, mercifully, things are better there now. Witness: They would never have disapproved of a group that happens to support abortion when I was there–but they just rejected a NAACP chapter for that reason. Their new president (a few years now), Fr. O’Connell, has been a Godsend. (And, that actually is a story I need to write…feel free to e-mail me if you have any insights or stories from there.)
