My friend Justin Catanoso came to speak on campus last night about his new book about his cousin who was made a saint by the Catholic Church. The book is appropriately titled: My Cousin the Saint. It was a great talk and good fun to hang out with him and his wife (I met them both many years ago at an old time music festival in West Virginia and usually only see them there).

Justin is firing on all cylinders--there is a blog in Cincinnati (describing itself as "a blog celebrating the Catholic Church, primarily in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati", a description which falls well under the rubric of "know your audience") which named Justin Number 3 of the "top ten list of the most fascinating Catholics of 2008." Number one is the Pope. Number two is Nancy Pelosi. So number three ain't bad. I'm guessing the pope gets first place every year.
