a bishop after my own heart, and he isn't even one of mine

I wish I'd had taken notes where I saw it, but the new Archbishop-elect of Boston, +Sean Patrick O'Malley ofm cap, said on his announcement day, "I have to get some of those Powdermilk Biscuits; you know, the ones for shy people...."

For those who don't know, Powdermilk Biscuits, advertised on "A Prairie Home Companion," are a medicinal foodstuff, effective in "giving shy people the strength to get up and do what needs to be done."

May he eat many many Powdermilk Biscuits, and do all the things that need to be done in Boston. Then may he share his biscuit supply with other shy scared people so we'll all be strong enough to do what needs doing because it needs to be done.
