'A friar walks into a bar ...'

Congratulations to my friend Michael J. New, a University of Alabama assistant political science professor who has gotten wonderful local publicity for the latest season of the Theology on Tap series that he books in Tuscaloosa. Not only did the campus paper feature the event, but even the local TV news did a story — quite a coup in an area where the Catholic presence is relatively small.

The TV news clip features Michael as well as the latest series' first speaker, the assistant vocations director for the EWTN friars.
