Welcome to!

Having now consumed far too much space on various peoples comboxes, I've decided that I probably ought to reserve my more extensive brain dumps for my own blog. I don't have any specific plans in mind other than saving people the trouble of scrolling through my more verbose posts. Also, it will give me the chance to comment on certain blogs and other Internet fora that either don't allow comments or ban people of my religious persuasion with undue frequency. Of course, I may be tempted from time to time to author posts out of sheer vanity, and I hope that you'll forgive me for those lapses.

To discern information about me that might be of interest, you need only refer to the title of the blog. "Crimson" is the nickname for teams from the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States, which also happens to be the home of the oldest law school in the United States. Somehow, I managed to deceive this venerable institution into recognizing me as a Doctor of Laws, so I now feel justified in shamelessly trading on that credential. The "Catholic" part refers to my communion with Pope John Paul II, the successor to St. Peter and the Vicar of Christ on Earth. Normally, I wouldn't think it necessary to explain what I mean by "Catholic," but some people seem to be a bit confused about the concept.

If you consider anything are offended by the inanity of any of my posts, I have a completely valid excuse: I'm a Texas Aggie who happens to be a Cajun. Needless to say, it's hard to take myself too seriously! Normally, I would take this opportunity to wax poetic about my love for college football and the Aggies in particular. But right now, I'm extremely miffed at the team because as a Catholic in the South, I can't stand losing to Baptists. It's like being a Yankees fan and watching that choke job in the ALCS. Oh, wait, I am a Yankees fan! If Jean-Francois Queri manages to win the election, this will be one really bad year for yours truly. :-(

Anyway, I'm sure anyone whose curiosity is piqued will ask me for "the rest of the story," so I'll just call it quits for now!

Grace and peace to you.

Welcome to the "club"! Hope this doesn't mean, though, that you will stop making your eloquent, insightful posts on my blog. :-( Maybe a little less frequently, . . . but don't go away totally!
