Yes, I am headed back to our nation's capital. (Pray I don't moon the chief executive. I really don't want to end up on the nightly news.) The principal reason for the trip is to attend the Naval Academy Graduation and Commissioning Week. (A young man from my parish is among the graduates. Jake is going to be flying copters for the USMC!) I am not sure who the speaker is except that it isn't the POTUS as he spoke there last year. (I am hoping for Biden, so I can see him put his foot in his mouth. Something like, "Midshipmen, this is a big f***ing deal!")
Anyhow, my social secretary, the Crescat, is arranging a blognic. As soon as I have details, I will post them. I will also attempt to celebrate (con-celebrate if I must) Mass at the National Shrine next Sunday.
