what a difference four days makes

By Jeff (articles ) | Dec 07, 2003

The opening paragraph of an article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, December 2 ("New archbishop is called smart, kind, not flashy"):

He is a Wisconsin dairy farm boy who served as a lawyer to the Roman Catholic Church's highest court in Rome. He is a passionate defender of family farms, an intellectual preacher who reads his sermons word-for-word from the pulpit and a fan of Italian food with French red wine. And he remembers people's names.

The opening paragraph of an article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, December 6 ("Archbishop-elect Raymond L. Burke faces the heat"):

If there is one thing with which St. Louis Archbishop-elect Raymond L. Burke is familiar, it is creating controversy.
