A blog inspired by my favorite concept from Catholic social teaching, "the preferential option for the poor," which lies at the core of two flawed institutions to which I am loyal, the Democratic Party and the Catholic Church.

Paris Gardening Store
Went shopping today in a very unique gardening store. A little "high end," kind of like the old Smith and Hawkin. But what was truly unusual was the collection of stuffed animals on the second floor, everything from small rabbits to loons and tigers and bears. They even had a giraffe and a baby zebra. All formerly live animals. Prices ran up to tens of thousands of euros. Pretty creepy stuff. Picture of just one of multiple rooms below
