When the Tear Gas Dissipates...

I interrupt my retrospective London itinerary yet again to bring you news of a fantastic organization dedicating to introducing "future religious leaders" to people who really know what they're talking about when it comes to public policy, ecomomics and globalization: The Acton Institute (web-site well worth exploring). I just got back from a conference they held in Seattle, which must mean they have me confused with a "future religious leader."

Though I could go on and on about how very instructive it all was, I will limit my commentary to the following: How ironic it is that one would learn about the realities of economics and global politics in a subtle and nuanced way in Seattle.
