GKC,
There is a horrible sting in the tale. On the way back home all the trains were cancelled for quite a while. I was stuck on a freezing cold platform (with many others) for 2 hours. Eventually we got home.
This is what occured (its on a different line to mine but alas we both go through this one station):

Unfortunately this is all to common this time of year. The line was closed for about 7 hours in all, so I can count myself lucky I did not try to come home early.



That is sad.

I thought it was the most (and, maybe, only) balanced account of the long term relations between an Indian nation and US (and Mexican) institutions. It was objective, well-researched, and not politically correct -- which makes it nearly unique in modern popular history.


Would you clarify this?

I would be reading another P.G. Wodehouse book now if it were not for the fact that it has not arrived in the post yet. :cry:

I'm reading an old book titled, PRINCIPLES OF CATHOLIC THEOLOGY, A Synthesis of Dogma and Morals, by Rev. Edward J. Gratsch & John R. Civille.

Has anyone else read this?

I read that. Not to turn this into a discussion but I wonder how someone can know so much about the angels.

If that's the John R. Civille I know, I would advise not to read it.

Does it say Rev. John R. Civille?

I know a John R. Civille who is a local priest and used to teach at a local Catholic university. He has praised Kung at the pulpit, suggested that you at least confess one sin during a penitential service (when in fact you must confess all known mortal sins, any differentiating between mortal and venial sins and the value of confessing venial sins was not spoken of) and allows liturgical abuse in his Masses including on some occasions liturgical dance. He also dislikes the new translation.

Of course there is a possibility its not the same person and second one could assume he may have been different 30 years ago when the book was written.

It says "John R. Civille is a priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, assistant professor of moral theology at Mt. St. Mary's Seminary, Norwood, Ohio, and pastor of St. Anthony's Church, Cincinnati...."

I guess so.

I'm reading an old book about Father Jacques Marquette's exploration of the Mississippi River in 1673; it was written in the 1950's by August Derleth, who as you may or may not know, was a great admirer and imitator of H.P. Lovecraft. :)

I'm a Derleth, Arkham House, Mycroft & Moran, and Lovecraft collector.

Excellent! I have everything Lovecraft ever wrote (except for the stuff he ghost-wrote for other people and his personal letters, of course), plus a goodly amount of Derleth, Clark Ashton Smith, Robert E. Howard, Robert Bloch, and others.

I also have quite a few Victorian authors of the outré in my collection---J. Sheridan LeFanu, Ambrose Bierce, Algernon Blackwood, Robert W. Chambers, and others.

Not sure if you were aware of this or not, but Howard Dean is a true believer:

I'd believe anything of Dean, including that he was a shuggoth.

I got most everything Lovecraft wrote, going back to his early days in various APAs, letters included (5 volumes). Belonged to a few Lovecraftian flavored organizations, and bought much small press and fan produced material, back in the 70s-80s, fanzines, chap books, etc. Once sold a book signed by him (a collection of nondescript ghost stories, which he mentioned to Derleth, in one of the letters. Still own 3-4 books from Lovecraft's personal library.

Those other names are also among my people. If you don't know Montague Rhodes James, look into him. Ditto M. P. Dare and H.R. Wakefield. And Russell Kirk did some right good material, too.

Believe it or not, I used to live about nine miles from Russell Kirk. Saw his house every day on my way to and from school. :) He wrote some good stuff.

Then I know roughly where you lived. I'd have gone over and knocked on the door. He was instrumental in forming much of my thought, years ago.

Did manage to get my copy of THE CONSERVATIVE MIND signed and inscribed. Mutual acquaintance.
