    Howdy from Georgetown, Eileen. Enjoyed your Saturday piece on E.J. Dionne talk on the emergence of the religious left. Put me in mind of a young preacher who attended a recent Sun City Democrats meeting — yes, there are a few– to call for consideration of universal health care as moral rather than an economic issue. I’ve never heard such a man of the cloth. Ever since the “Moral Majority” of the 1960s and my personal dealings with super-conservative Catholic priests, I thought the religious center of the U.S. was Wall Street.

    Anyway, the preacher gave me his card which took me to this address advertising a showing of the anti-war documentary, Rethinking Afghanistan. Carol and I are thinking about going. Might you be interested? This is from his website:

      Hello, George. How nice to hear from you! Glad to know you’re still reading. This film sounds very interesting. Even more appealing is the promise of homemade choc chip cookies. Too bad Wed. night won’t work for me. You know, I’ll bet I know one Sun City resident who will be there. Pete Szafran, a former Catholic priest who probably shares a lot of your views. Pete married my husband and me. Terrific guy.

      Anyway, sorry I will miss it, but thank you for thinking of me!
