Francis Gets Shout-Out

... on the New York Times op-ed page, no less.

These indeed are the dark days of summer for the newspaper reader. The heavy hitters take well-deserved vacations from the Op-Ed pages, leaving the junior varsity to pick up the slack.

Timothy Egan isn't necessarily a first-stringer in my small mind, but he gets extra points for making a great St. Francis reference today. With the re-institution (foolishly, I might add) of grey wolf hunting in Montana and Idaho, Mr. Egan makes reference to my pal Franky and his compassion for the mighty wolf.

For the necessary background of Francis and the wolf of Gubbio, check things out here.
