P.S.  Indications that I’m posting from Rome, or Florence, or Jerusalem, or wherever plainly drive some of my critics absolutely mad.  They want to mock me as a provincial yokel who knows nothing of life or thought beyond Provo, but, sometimes, they’re obliged to pivot on a dime (or a centime) in order to deride me as a shallow pseudo-sophisticated braggart who preens himself on his frequent international travels.  The two caricatures aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive, of course, but it requires a certain dedicated agility for such a critic to switch back and forth between them so rapidly.  Everybody has a hobby.
