Dear Korrektiv: I’m grateful you took
Me onboard. Soft! — One last, longing look….
If I have a successor,
God bless him or bless her!
(Now I’m just one more everyday schnook.)

    It’s probably obvious, but just in case, here’s the recommended soundtrack for this post.

  2. Matthew Lickona says

    I think our work is finished here.

  3. Jonathan Potter says

    Thanks for not trashing the place.

  4. No, don’t go, Angelico!

    (See, I can make poetry too.)

    Seriously, you gave the joint some class, and I’ll miss your posts.

    • Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says

      Too kind, ma’am. You and Darwin class up the whole Internet — seriously. Yall are an inspiration to me as a Catholic, and have been for years.

      Meantime, God and the Kollektiv willing, I’ll keep infesting the comment boxes here like a more-or-less benign bedbug.

  5. I’ve enjoyed your contributions to the month of April. Thanks for your time, thought, and inspiration.

    • Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says

      Thank you, Nancy, for words that reflected
      My poor posts and your thoughts intersected;
      Each* small point (please God) paints
      A communion of saints:
      It’s all about being konnekted.

      *Poetic license.

  6. Imelda/Sophia, O.P. says

    St. Dominic spoke to the Albigensians in terms they understood.

    Thank you for ably representing the charism of the Ordo Praedicatorum by sharing the abundant fruits of your contemplation.


    • Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says

      Not at all, Suor Imelda: ‘Tis you
      To whom thanks for sound counsel are due.
      Jesus keep you, dear Prioress;
      Till Dominic’s fire is
      Ablaze — and forever! — stay true.

    • Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says

      On our first opponents, the Albigensians aka Cathars:

      I actually did some cursory research for a ‘Know Your Heresies’ post on them — even had a photo of a Cathar castle picked out to illustrate the post! — but ran out of time to do the heavy reading.

      Has Mr Lickona mentioned to you (or have you maybe learned through other means) that one of the more major minor characters in the latest Whit Stillman joint identifies himself as a modern-day Cathar?

      • lickona says

        Well, given his reasons for saying so, I thought it might be best if I kept my today-in-porn trap shut.

        • Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says

          Are you suggesting that the members of the ALA associated to promote something something other than the Albigensian Legacy?

          • If I recall, he was horrified by the ALA pamphlet. They understood nothing of his high-minded purpose in requiring anal sex of his lady fair.

            • “Why do you want that from me? Is this some sort of sick Catholic thing?”

              “That’s Cathar, Sis.”

              • Matthew Lickona says

                Close. As part of his seduction, he can’t help but note that the Cathars were brutally repressed by the Catholic Church. To which she replies, “The Catholic Church ruins everything.” Hee hee!

                • Still waiting to see the thing – none of those fancy motion pickshurs makes it out thisserway (snort! sniff! hawk! petuey!) lessen it be through one of those faggy arthouse things – but we usually burn them down if they stick around too long and all.
