The Old Grey Lady
The op-ed page in Sunday's New York Times featured a piece by Amy Welborn.
Welborn, you'll recall, is a Fort Wayne writer who runs Open Book, a prominent Catholic blog. On Wednesday, she got a call from someone at the Times asking her to write something for their op-ed page on the on-going examination of Catholic seminaries.
One wonders why the New York Times called and requested an opinion piece from Welborn before any of her hometown papers. After all, it's not like the Catholic Church hasn't been in the news the last few years...
