    Not “fat.”

    Jolly.

    I have to agree with one of the comments at the Register. He needs to move closer to work or find a job closer to where he lives. I love train travel, but not so much for so long if you are working and trying to have a life.

For this reason, I found the last paragraphs of Mark’s reply to this ex-seminarian and his quotes from Blessed JH Newman very helpful.
