Dinner Talk

Some of what went down Thursday night at the Al Smith dinner in New York and why it matters. And a cardinal bottom line: “Please don’t be confused. Please know that simply to pray with somebody, simply to have a meal with somebody, simply to be friendly to somebody doesn’t mean that we are endorsing them or agreeing with them.”

And a dinner you may prefer — celebrating Jim Buckley.
