This is going to be so much fun.
Actually, the only U.S. seat held by a Catholic from this archdiocese, I think, is Lacy Clay, my congrescritter.
The local ones, though, a lot are. I can just hear the complaints now about the Catholics having too much power in St. Louis. Well, we were here first. Think of the name.

To: Desdemona; ninenot
Christmas came early this year for Desdemona and other seriously Catholic folk in the St. Louis Archdiocese as Pope John Paul II sent them Archbishop-designate Raymond Burke, 55 years of age, tanned, rested and ready to demonstrate magnificently what an archbishop can do.
The relatively recent appointment of Justin Cardinal Rigali to become Archbishop of Philadelphia had created a vacancy at St. Louis, just as the promotion of Bishop Burke has now created a vacancy at La Crosse, Wisconsin.
Genuine Catholics will pray for a worthy sucessor of Bishop Burke to be apponted to La Crosse and that that repleacement will pick up where Bishop Burke left off by sending copies of the referenced latter to the same legislators and putting a deadline on their response. An unsatisfactory response should lead to the promised invitation (mandatory) to stop receiving the sacraments and the necessary public declaration of non-Catholicism of those "Catholic" legislators who refuse to obey.
Desdemona, I guess this means we probably won't be able to persuade you to move to Rockford. Sigh.
