Rigali profile: explaining the man

 |  NCR Today

One of the responses to Michael Sean Winters' posting today about Philadelphia and Cardinal Justin Rigali contains a link to a 2002 profile of the cardinal in the Riverfront Times, an alternative paper in St. Louis.

The piece was written by Jeannette Batz, a name that might be familiar to NCR readers. For a number of years she wrote a regular column for the paper. Batz is a wonderful writer, so the profile is worth it for the sheer pleasure of the read, but she is also a skilled and persistent researcher with an eye for telling detail and a talent for connecting dots that others might not even see.
