Readers of my posts will become familiar with my background as a Jesuit seminarian (1956-1965) because that is part, but only part, of who I am. They will also become acquainted with my history as a teacher of British and American Literature, primarily at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, my literary scholarship, my travels with my wife, Mary, and my reflections as a retiree, especially on current events. I hope you will find my posts entertaining as well as instructive. Your comments are always welcome, and I make it a habit to reply.
