1. Over at the Commonweal blog, Mollie Wilson O'Reilly has started a discussion on the Alice McDermott short story I mentioned in mid-July, "I Am Awake." The story is beautiful -- why not read it and join me in posting your impressions?
2. On Friday, I posted "Sister, and all her sisters," and referred to a blog posting by Sr. Mary Ann Walsh, at the USCCB media blog. I've just discovered that her blog post is missing...maybe just temporarily taken down to edit? Surely it hasn't just ... disappeared?
Am checking, will let you know what I find...
Update, August 12th: I guess it's been taken down, no real news here.
But I wish things were different.
