Punching Clouds: The Escalating War Against Meaning

It’s time, if you’ll forgive me, for a little stream of consciousness.

I’m in a weird place. Maybe you are too.

I’m also a little frustrated with the fact that my thoughts are moving more and more to a larger arena than just what is transpiring in the Church, and because of that I’m not sure if 1P5 is the appropriate venue for them, but it’s the one I’ve got (for now) so I’ll put them here anyway. I’m going to do something unusual, though, and cross-post this to my as-yet-unused Substack account. Depending on how tangential some of my writing becomes in the near-future, such a non-1P5 venue may be desirable. (It’s easy to subscribe by email to Substack posts, so if you’re interested, please do so right here.)

CNA Staff, Nov 6, 2020 / 04:00 pm (CNA).- House Republicans scored an upset victory this week in Florida’s Miami-Dade County, as a pro-life, Latino candidate unseated the Democratic incumbent and former HHS secretary who served in Bill Clinton’s administration.

Maria Salazar, a Cuban-American journalist endorsed by the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, has been declared the victor in Florida’s 27th congressional district race. As of Friday afternoon, she was leading Democratic Rep. Donna Shalala by more than 9,000 votes.

The Cook Political Report predicted Salazar’s race to be a “likely Democratic” victory. Cook rated the district D+5—or five percentage points more Democratic than the U.S. average district.
