Weird blogging availability today, and this still isn't my take on things, but I wanted to get these two stories out for your perusal, one from the St. Louis Beacon and one from STLToday.
Just one pull quote from the Beacon story hit me:
"Our biggest challenge,” [Archbishop Carlson] said, “is having parents realize that the best way to hand on the Catholic faith is the Catholic school.”
I agree that making that proposition true would indeed be the biggest challenge the campaign faces. Because it might be a tough sell at present.
