I saw the photo at the Deacon's. I liked it so much I had to post it. It shows what a gentleman Cardinal Dolan is. I'm really not all that concerned about the Cardinal's politics or his banquets - he's a Cardinal Archbishop and Cardinals and Bishops do what they do. I have no say in how they do their job.
That said, Helen Gurley Brown is another story, isn't she. She used to be on Carson a lot - in fact she always presented so prim and proper, though chic and sophisticated, that I found it hard to believe she was a 'sexologist'. Her book, Sex and the Single Girl, did much to teach women about their new found freedom, as well as to level the sexual playing field between the sexes, on some level it is regarded as a contributing factor to the sexual revolution. As it turns out, her persona came to be identified as something akin to a female Hugh Hefner: Brown recognized her market and published for it - to great success. Men - and the pill - permitted her to promote what she did. She always claimed to enjoy herself doing it.
We all get old, and then we die. The Cardinal was very charitable to show such kindness to an old lady.

"Each soul is the object of My special love. That is why I am so grateful to those who are resourceful in bringing back sinners to Me. Keep this in mind then.

A brusque remark could drive them farther away." - He and I
