Soliloquy in an International Cloister

Watch your step as Brother Lawrence takes you inside the monastery walls of a five hundred year-old international order. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wish you had ignored your hormones and joined the monastery.

My momma always said...

if you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all. Which is one of the reasons I have never said anything about our President, Mr. George W. Bush. I am deeply indebted, therefore, to Mr. Wellington Webb, the former mayor of Denver, who found something nice to say about Mr. Bush in his speech to the Colorado Democratic Convention.

"Mr. Bush," he said, "has single-handedly demolished the myth of white supremacy."

It's true. You can always find something nice to say about a person.
