Well, El Gato, I claim no clairvoyance with regard to what may be ailing Rod Dreher at any given moment. But I do know, due to my very ecumenical calendar [even has Kwanzaa noted on 12/26], that today marks the beginning of Lent for the members of Orthodox Christianity. And just in case you don't know, the Orthodox -- though more lax in matters of marriage than Catholics -- are much more strict in their lenten abstinence. From my understanding they become vegans for the entirety of Lent. That means no meat, no fish, no oysters, no eggs, etc. until Easter. So when he writes "Honestly, I've had it with people," what he really might mean is "MAN, AM I HUNGRY!"  (Mar 14, 2016 | post #590)

This is not actually true. It has happened before: http://contrapauli .blogspot.com/2011 /05/man-in-celloph ane-mask.html And it *might* be happening now: http://contrapauli .blogspot.com/2015 /07/rod-drehers-be nedict-option-astr oturf.html  (Jul 22, 2015 | post #530)

My friend Keith just posted this: http://contrapauli .blogspot.com/2015 /07/the-benedict-o ption-fully-and-fi nally.html Models and movie-stars go to court against tabloids and paparazzi for snapping embarrassing shots of them with long lenses. But here is an example of someone with absolutely no self-awareness at all willingly posting an illustration of himself eating eggs while ostensibly straining to produce one.  (Jul 8, 2015 | post #510)

Of course I saw the humor; made me smile. If I was independently wealthy and had nothing better to do, I would attend the Walker Percy festival for sure. I love all that Louisiana stuff. As it turns out, I went to a party that my friend threw for his son's HS graduation. There were about 200 people there, tons of food and drinks, great weather and a live band. It was a blast, so I don't begrudge you the great time you spent at the festival.

Here's a way that you can begin reading Rod Dreher's new book for free: https://play.googl e.com/store/books/ details?id=qLF0BgA AQBAJ Google Play will let you read 45 pages (of 325) of How Dante Can Save Your Life. Then you can decide if it's worth $11.99 to read the rest. ...you're welcome. ;-)  (Jun 5, 2015 | post #490)
