The Pope and Scalia

Sept. 24, 2015

Dear Hildie:

Well, I got the date right this time. Anyway, the Jeep is overheating again. Car Talk says Jeeps are junk, which may be right, but they’re fun to drive—when they run.

You didn’t discourage me about the novel. Hey, everything could stand a good rewrite. And I’m perfectly truthful when I said I wrote it just because I had to, not with any eye toward publication.

How many times has your mother been married? I’m sure you told me and I forgot. Boy, what a paper-driven society we have—though now it’s being taken over by the tyranny of passwords. Who can remember all the damned things? I had all mine on a list—and lost it.

I see Justices Scalia, Alito, and Thomas boycotted their pope’s address to Congress. What a complete lack of class. I always suspected Scalia was just another Mussolini. I just can’t fathom such utter disrespect for the leader of their own church. Maybe Scalia wants to be pope himself. Or maybe those three want to be the Trinity. With Scalia, it’s always “my way or no way.”

Enough for now.

Take care.

Love,

M
