- Peace Garden: Uncle Dick and Papa

Uncle Dick and Papa

Saturday, April 23, 2005

Uncle Dick and Papa is a great piece by Maureen Dowd that highlights some great parallels between " W.'s Doberman and John Paul's 'God's Rottweiler". " The two, from rural, conservative parts of their countries, want to turn back the clock and exorcise New Age silliness. Mr. Cheney wants to dismantle the New Deal and go back to 1937. Pope Benedict XVI wants to dismantle Vatican II and go back to 1397. As a scholar, his specialty was "patristics," the study of the key thinkers in the first eight centuries of the church."

So many other parallels that Dowd highlights - amusing, interesting and thought provoking.
