Bravo!

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 23, 2008

"Bravo" says a Boston Globe reviewer in his drive-by review of Phil Lawler's book, The Faithful Departed.

Now to be perfectly honest, if you trouble yourself to read the whole thing, you might question whether "bravo" captures the essence of the review. Indeed you might wonder whether your Uncle Di even read the whole thing. Fair enough. But then I wonder whether the Globe reviewer read Phil's book, so I guess we're even.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    'bravo' is a rave review and i agree. for easter i sent a dozen copies through amazon to family and friends around the country. the lessons are important regardless where you live. in the second edition, phil can catch us up on the further antics of the enablers we have as bishops. the nuncio says b16 will address the abuse issue, but i'll bet he won't touch the on-going negligence of our hierarchy.

    I did go to the Globe Website and read it and "drive-by review" is a good description of it.

    The "drive-by 5-sentence review " has a broken hyperlink! It just points to "http://www.cwnews.com/offtherecord/
