Sargent Shriver
Of course I won’t canonise him like Jim Wallis’s blog is doing. As a man of the left he was wrong but one can be so and be Catholic and apparently he was a pro-life gentleman, likeable like Eugene McCarthy. Of course I like the dapper golden-era (in this blog, about 1935-1965) Time cover (click for a closer look) but of course it reminds me of The Quiet American (‘we ’re from the government and we’re here to f*** things up’). RIP.
