« A Sermon, on the Current Disputes Over Turning Off Cellphones in the British Library Reading Rooms; Delivered on June 20, 2006, in Islington | Main | The Progress of Morals: Day 5 »

June 21, 2006



Impertinent questions: What are you doing when you're not working? How's the weather? How has London changed since the last time?


1. So far, I've been camped out in the BL from 9:30 to anywhere from 4:30-5:30, so there hasn't been much time for anything else (I'll do some sightseeing this weekend). I've wandered around a bit in Parliament Square, dropped in on a couple of museums, hung out on Charing Cross Rd.
2. Weather is surprisingly nice--almost no rain, a little cool but not unpleasantly so.
3. Most noticeable change since the last time I was here, three years ago: the CCTV cameras are everywhere.


Are you transcribing as you read, or will you go back later to transcribe the good ones? Just curious.


Can you explain a little about "apostolicity vs. novelty"? I'm curious how the Cof E makes a case for the RC being "novel," as you suggest.
