One final most-of-a-morning of informal conversation with the attendees of this meeting of the Bishops of Small Dioceses, then we all headed to the airport. For me, this involved riding the great new light rail system in Salt Lake City. Urban mass transit is kind of a nerdy interest of mine. But my flight wasn’t until 4:00, so I had a lot of time to kill at the departure gate. The flight to Chicago and the short hop to Springfield both went smoothly, and I got a rather enormous (relatively speaking) amount of reading done, for which I was very grateful, as I feel chronically deprived of time to read. Home a little past 10.
