Social notes

In the midst of all these important discussions, let the following encounters be noted:I am in the great city of San Francisco and last evening having delivered myself of a very long talk on how to save the church, two members of the audience introduced themselves: Jimmy Mac and Ed Gleason! They are both very tall and very friendly. Among other items we agreed that we are all curmudgeons.Good to meet you guys and thanks for admitting you were there!
