He and I share a love of 70s music and culture and we both find ourselves out of sorts in the 2010s, the world having shifted beneath our feet.
He has a tendency to call for simplistic solutions to political problems, often involving shooting the politicians, all of them. (Sorry, dude, they tried that. Doesn't work.)
His analysis often shows his roots as a radio DJ, and he never met a Republican he didn't didn't like.
But just when I'm ready to throw him over, he goes and writes something like this, an obituary for the former Archbishop of New Orleans, Phillip Hannan, who was one of the Catholic Church's finest--the man who gave the funeral eulogy for both JFK and RFK, and saw New O through thirty years of wrenching change.
In the early part of the ritual, Aymond and the others jointly confessed their sins in prayer, and as part of the rite, Aymond said he granted Hannan absolution from his sins in the name of Jesus.
Though weak and perhaps not entirely alert, Aymond said Hannan whispered a response.
They are what so far are his last recorded words:
He said: “Sounds good to me.”
God bless and rest the Archbishop. And go over to Revolution 21 and check it out.
