Father, in reading about Sister Miriam and her journeys to Ireland where she composed the bit about the waterfall, I noticed her disdain for the "commerical, industrial model" and wondered how she actually traveled to Ireland. Did she take a nice environmentally safe sailboat or one of those big polluting jets? Did she succumb to the "commercial, industrial model" herself?
I guess it's a little like Al Gore complaining about SUVs all the time, even as his Secret Service detail followed him about a half-dozen of the things. Environmentalism is alright as long as it's not too inconvenient.
