The cardinal and the Cosmo girl

The National Catholic Register website today features an op-ed in which I reflect on the life and legacy of longtime Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown.

Don't be put off by the essay's polemic headline, which was added by the editors. Although I do talk about Brown's promotion of the "culture of use," I'm more interested in how she came to dance with Dolan.
