"He instinctively can find the shining greatness of our American culture and does a good job of highlighting it (although he also does have those rare lapses when he writes about hockey, but that is something caused by impurities in the Eastern waters or something)." Erik Keilholtz

Monday, August 16, 2004 Junk Mail: I understand how I've managed to find myself on Catholic mailing lists and history book-club mailing lists and conservative Republican mailing lists (that personally autographed glossy of the President and First Lady is just the thing to alarm liberal family-members). But the Planned Parenthood mailing list? Believe me, nothing about my parenthood has been planned. And I would say to Gloria Feldt: I'd heretofore not thought of myself as an "anti-choice fanatic," but after your mass-mail alarums, I readily accept the label.
Meantime, a fund-raising appeal arrived the other week from Tom Monaghan at Ave Maria University, and it is interesting to note the accompanying brochure contains an artist's rendition of the proposed campus that still includes the Windex church. Supposedly officials had backed off plans for the great greenhouse, but they're still promoting in their brochure an oratory that will measure 300 feet long by 150 feet high and seat more worshipers (3,300) than any other Catholic church in the country. And the reader is directed to an artist's rendition of the campus with the glass church at center.
