No rulers here: Washington Times Communities Blog

with 2 comments

Yes, I’ve been moonlighting.  When I’m not here blogging about the saga of my own emotions, I’m making light of Catholicism on the Washington Times Communities blogs.

Please do me a favor and click on my posted blogs there so they won’t kick me off.

Friends of the faith, please feel free to contact me regarding topics you’d like to mention, or if you have an article that you’d like to write.

Thanks to my friend, A, for reading this blog and being brave enough to ask me to contribute. Thanks, also, to my personal illustrator, I, for this crazy cause!

Here’s the link to my first post:
