He's slated for retirement soon enough.
Was O'Connor really the stand-up gut he get credit for being? Sometimes I wonder if he couldn't have done more.
ELS: do you have any theory about Myers's chances to swim the Hudson?
I didn't follow events closely while he was Arch. of NY, but I do remember hearing about his statements. At least he did speak up for life, truth, etc. I have only been aware of Egan speaking up once early in his tenure as Arch. of NY and that was in opposition to some odious legislation in Albany.

I really don't have enough information to formulate a theory. I think Myers has had input into the recent episcopal appointments in NJ. I have heard that he really didn't want to be in Newark. IMHO, I think he would be an improvement over Egan.
Maybe the Holy Ghost will raise up a humble, holy and little known man to the See of New York.
I understand from my sister that Cardinal Egan wants to remain in New York "in power" until he is 78. So I've been told to expect a "makeover" for Egan to make him look like Pope Benedict's best ally. There's more, but that's enough for now really. God bless.
