Just so I can demonstrate some balance, I’m going to lob something President Jenkins’ way over his statement of finding another worthy recipient.
It’s a bad idea.
He, or his committee, or whoever, have already decided Mary Ann Glendon is the best recipient. I agree. Her name should stay on the plaque or tree or whatever, the award noted, and medal not received, and the acceptance talk not given. Then just move on. He’s already given the political pro-lifers plenty to crow about and laugh at. If I were on his Laetare board, I would counsel wait till next year for the next recipient. Suggestion: Stephen Colbert.
