Rowan Williams is a faithful man. He is a wise and intelligent man. He is a well-spoken man with a gift for research and writing. He has a well-known but well-disguised sense of humour. But nobody could successfully accuse him of being pretty ... which is, I think, beyond dispute.

Said with tongue in cheek, no doubt, Father Steve.

As a judge you would know better than most that there are few matters "beyond dispute" which are "beyond dispute", and fewer still on matters of personal taste.

In any case, we have a unique opportunity to put your own personal judgment to an actual test by poll of all AWADians surveying this whiskered countenance which is reputed to "strongly resemble" our own Faldage.

...we discussed terms of art the first year I began posting here, AnnaS. I think I may have been the one looking for such a term, and one of the old dogs here provided it.

Thanks for the memory, WW. Mine lapses in my peri-dotage.

That's a good one for my demi thread, ASp. Thanks.

demi-dotage

It goes along with demi-retirement.

But can he survive as AB of C, Padre? I have no doubt that he's a bright cookie, but is he really politically astute enough to surmount the slings and arrows of outrageous (Church) fortune? Most of the publicity over here in Pommyland tends to be negative, which is probably unfortunate.

Methinks +Rowan must be deranged -- or a little bit so -- as no man in his right mind would have accepted the throne of Augustine in England at this time in the history of the church.
