Which influential executive in Massachusetts issued these statements to explain how his organization had resolved an internal dispute?

We have implemented new mechanisms which enhance internal communication and which streamline external communication.

Over this period, walls have crumbled, perceptions of one another have changed, and appreciation of one another has grown.

Did that deathless prose come from:

  1. the chairman of the Massachusetts Republican Party?
  2. the Archbishop of Boston?
  3. the chief executive of the Boston Red Sox?
  4. the president of the University of Massachusetts?

The correct answer is 3. Surprised you, didn't I?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Change a few words here and there (substitute cathredal for Fenway Park for exampel) and it could have been almost any one of the Catholic bishops in the US.

    Dear Uncle Di, great change up! Didn't even get the bat off my shoulder.
