Ambassador Glendon and the Boston Globe: what "mixed" views?

Gotta love the cutting edge reporting of The Boston Globe, especially in the story headlined "Views mixed on Bush pick for envoy to Vatican."

If you read the article, the only one (besides Father Richard McBrien who really doesn't offer a personal opinion on Glendon herself) who had anything negative to say about the appointee is — get ready! — the president of "Catholics" for a Free Choice, who called her a "reactionary."

Be prepared for equally incredible revelations, including:

Boiling water is hot!

Ice is cold!

French fries aren't really French!

Meanwhile, prayers for Mary Ann Glendon are appreciated.
