Moral instruction from the Boston Herald.

Gotta love the Herald - see this headline in today's edition: "Moral: Don't let your babies grow up to be bank robbers." As often happens in the Herald, the headline has only a loose link to the article it accompanies, a piece on a recently apprehended criminal suspect dubbed the "Willie Nelson bank robber" by Boston police. If you study the picture, you have to admit that, yeah, he kinda does look like Willie Nelson - but, then again, he also looks like George W. Bush might if he grew a beard and ponytail. (Note especially the similar facial expressions.)

You may be wondering what this post has to do with life in the novitiate. The best answer would probably be "nothing," though I'm currently reading a book on moral theology and the linked article has the word "moral" in its title. Bear in mind that I've also reserved the right to occasionally comment on extraneous topics, which this certainly is. AMDG.
