Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Tee hee hee!

Uncle Di has a superb post on the art of what has been styled "high-tech grafitti" leading to "new avenues of calumny." The whole piece is a must read but his conclusion is especially good:
The point of this excursus is that bad blogging, like bad graffiti, cancels itself out by simply adding to the background noise it pretends to comment on. But it doesn't have to be that way. Occasionally I'm moved to wonder whether the most sanctimonious critics of blogdom are not so much concerned with the spread of alarm and despondency as they are tormented by the possibility that someone, somewhere, might be having a laugh at their expense.
In other news, it looks like Tom Monaghan beat out JPII and Our Lady for the top spot again! This time it is for the memorial giving designations at AMU. (See here and here.) This guy is great--he receives awards at his own dinners, establishes AMU's school mascot in memory of his days with Sergeant Carter, controls just about everything in AMT, and is the beneficiary of having a donor's society named after him. Did I miss anything? Feel free to articulate in the comboxes.

Pauper et humilis.

Tee hee hee!
