As I'm starting to write, this question has imposed itself. I know that my kids and parents (hi Mom) will check in. As will a trickling of friends, colleagues, students and people poking around the internet at 3:00 am (howdy stranger). Could I speak to such a gathering without reconsidering every word as it is uttered? Not really.
So I'll be writing to the first two guys in the Changelings series. The guys in the pope hats. Jimmy Durante had his Mrs. Calabash. Franny her fat lady. I have my two iffy pontiffs.
Hello both Popes!
