Come, We Are Ready for the Floor Show!

Hello all! I’m a writer in Washington, DC, & a convert to Catholicism. I write mostly arts and book reviews, and I will mainly be doing that for State of the Union; I should have a post on “Damsels in Distress” up later today. (Although you can get my immediate reaction here [1].)

I just reviewed Ross Douthat’s new book [2] for TAC, and you can check out more of my writing at my blog [3].

I’m in Denver today, & will be speaking at Theology on Tap there tonight, on the topic, “Gay and Catholic: Is There a Place in the Church for Me?” [4] If you want a sense of how I approach those questions you can check out this piece I did with Luke Timothy Johnson for Commonweal [5]. And here [6] is where I learned that if you’re going to be in the New York Times, you should not wear clothing you bought off a street corner.

For a sense of what my conservatism looks like, you can check out this Cato Institute symposium on tradition [7].

Yay for Eve! Now I’ll have a way to link to her that doesn’t involve indecipherable blogspot URLs.

I have enjoyed your blog and AmCon pieces enormously.  Your presence in this feature will make my struggle to limit my time on this website even more challenging.  Great!

Eve, Damsels in Distress played in DC for what, one weekend? I missed it.  Playing at three theaters in NYC.  I think Whit Stillman an important director, but apparently not enough feel the same way.

Eve Tushnet,

The Jewish People respectfully request your return to the fold.  Your talent is missed.
