Internet access was so sporadic and brief and iffy during my just-concluded six weeks in the Middle East and Europe that I failed to provide links for several items that it is a primary function of this blog to provide links to. (Could you follow that rather convoluted sentence with its dangling preposition?) Anyway, I don’t think that I provided a link to this Hamblin/Peterson column. If I already did, I apologize.
I didn’t realize, at the time our column appeared, that I would soon be heading to Canterbury Cathedral. But that visit, on Saturday, was entirely appropriate to the article’s theme.
