Priest Leads Mass on 100th Birthday

This is the best news of an otherwise dreary week.

The Pope has set Christian-Muslim relations back by decades. Muslims have set Christian-Muslim relations back by centuries. President Bush is close to declaring himself infallible.

But Father Kingsley Laws, an Anglican priest who officially retired in 1979, celebrated his 100th birthday by saying Mass at his former parish in Somerset. Mind you, he said the service from memory, because his "eyesight is not what it was."

Neither is mine, sir. Neither is mine.
