Via email, Micah Watson shares his response to my article on Joseph Bottum’s An Anxious Age. As I noted earlier this morning, Bottum relates a story about the time a young Karol Wojtyla spent days chiseling an enormous frozen-solid pile of human excrement out of an abandoned seminary building in January 1945. In my review I take up this story as a metaphor for the church’s current cultural predicament.
Quoth Micah: “Holy crap!”
I believe I just saw my dream of devising the wittiest bon mot of the decade flushed right down the tubes. Touche!
