I'd love to see Joe Biden as our Ambassador to the United Nations.

While he definitely has the experience and expertise to serve as Secretary of State, I can understand that serving as head of the State Dept. is one of the most physically demanding positions in the Federal Government, and after his years of service and all he has been through in his private life, he may want to slow down.

However, if he's open to any position at all, U.N. Ambassador could fit him nicely and not have him flying all over the world.
If he's offered that position, I'd hope he'd give it a chance.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy!

So glad I had that opportunity, as we were only given it once.

And on a Friday afternoon, which means it will be the hot topic

all this weekend, including the Sunday morning talk shows.
I'm already bored with the topic.

I don't always have much to say re my "seniority".

Or it would take too much time to explain it all.
Sometimes I pipe up re other issues.

Yes, we ARE the wise ones, at least re some subjects.
We've seen a lot of water under the bridge, and don't feel the need to jump off a bridge when things - or elections- don't go our way.
Am looking forward to this election going our way, though I foresee many problems in governance (with a Republican House and a Dem. Senate unable to get to 60 votes when needed.

Wonderful. I envy you, as I'll likely never get the opportunity.

Meanwhile, I'll enjoy pics and videos, etc. of our dear Frankie!

Pope gives up another indulgence: His summer palace

religionnews.com/2016/10/21/pope-gives-up-another-indulgence-his-summer-palace/


Without ever having spent a night there, the Pope has ordered Castel Gandolfo, where popes have holidayed for over 400 years, be turned into a museum.

More at site.

I guess many orders have their off-beat members.

Reminds me of the Jesuit Fr. Mitch Pacwa on EWTN who is no way representative of normal Jesuit thinking.
