***I know I’m not alone here, but I absolutely adored Yogi Berra. How could you not? A Hall of Fame baseball player who appeared in 21 World Series, landed at Normandy during World War II, and was married for 65 years to his wife. I got to meet him once at a book signing in a Barnes & Noble. He grew up on “the Hill” in St. Louis—the Italian section—just blocks from where I went to church. During the summer, our church-league softball games were played in Berra Park, named after…a St. Louis alderman from the 1950s who was no kin to Berra but also grew up on the Hill (I didn’t know that until today. I bet that 99 of 100 St. Louisans believe the park commemorates Yogi).

Joseph Biden withdrew from the Democratic presidential race following his use of borrowed quotations and the portrayal of his academic record. And speaking of Biden, here is the full-video of a sit-down interview with Biden and Fr. Matthew Malone, editor-in-chief of America Media: Joe Biden on Faith, Family, and Politics
***A long Q&A with “Rush Limbaugh, Jr.” who has in recent years begun a seminary degree program at Reformed Theological Seminary. We’ve got to get him on an interview here at “Jesus in the Public Square” sometime soon.

(4) Jeb Bush writes, How Catholic Faith Changed My Life   
***Doesn’t really live up to the title, with no “before and after” description. Only that the Roman Catholic church has been good for his family since his conversion away from his Protestant background. It seems like he was pretty grounded beforehand. Would love to read more. 

***I always appreciate national news magazines providing page space to the articulate voices within the pro-life community.
