me in the piazza

I'm a writer, publishing both as SJ Rozan and, with Carlos Dews, as Sam Cabot. (I'm Sam, he's Cabot.) Here you can find links to my almost-daily blog posts, including the Saturday haiku I've been doing for years. BUT the blog itself has moved to my website. If you go on over there you can subscribe and you'll never miss a post. (Miss a post! A scary thought!) Also, I'll be teaching a writing workshop in Italy this summer -- come join us!

I am wrong as usual

Bergoglio. The guy wasn't even on my radar.

Leaving aside what it must feel like to be elected to the most powerful position in your world only after five ballots -- this is a vote of confidence? -- I'm cautiously optimistic. No, he's not a reformer, but this is a very conservative crowd of Cardinals; the closest things they have to reformers are Turkson and O'Malley, and nobody would call them progressives. Bergoglio does seem to be an honest, honorable, humble man, though, and I think that's the best we could have hoped for.

On Francis, and on the Jesuits, more tomorrow. Or, more tomorrow from Sam Cabot, who, as my grandfather would have put it, has what to say.
