If you'll pardon another brief digression: a member of my research team (it was, in fact, Yakko) just got back to me with an update. Dorothy Day founded the Catholic Worker Movement, died in 1980, and is currently a candidate for sainthood. I suspect that further investigation on this topic is unlikely to turn up any humorous material. In fact, if I learn anything more about Martin Sheen, I may be physically unable to make even the smallest joke about him or any of the characters he portrays. It's gotten so bad that I'm starting to have misgivings about some of the comments I've made about Moira Kelly, simply through her association with Martin Sheen.
I hope this explains why I am unable to produce an "Extra" on the St. Anthony Messenger article. No matter how much rambling about cookies and my home decorations I include, I don't see how I can write an entire article based on one bit of moderately interesting trivia about the The West Wing and some inspiring facts about Martin Sheen. When I've recovered from this effort, I'll take another look at the Brill's Content article and see if it has material more suited to our needs. In the meantime, I'm going to curl up with some old issues of Spy and read them until my cynicism is fully restored.
