The Jeweller's Shop

Reading about the John Paul II over the last week or so I have started to learn a little from George Weigel and Michael Valpy of his ideas on how culture far more than political ideology or economics shapes humanity's path through history.

I don't know enough about them to comment yet, so I just thought I would lighten the tone on a sad funereal day, by taking a moment to celebrate the fact that he put his money where his mouth was by the delightfully unlikely achievement of writing a play that became a Burt Lancaster film, and having "Writer - filmography" credits on his Internet Move Database entry.
