Just for the fun of it 

From last night's pleasure reading:

A few years ago, Call to Action announced that it was embarking on a one-year drive to get a million signatures in support of the changes we have been discussing. In this "mobilization," all stops were pulled in the network of leftward Catholic publications and organizations. At the end of the year, the organizers announced that they would need another year to reach their goal. It was pointed out by some that 1 million signatures from a community of 65 million Catholics fell somewhat short of a credible expression of the voice of the faithful. As it happened, the organizers ended up with about 34,000 signatures, which is 0.0005 percent of the Catholics in the country and about 0.0015 percent of regular Mass-goers.
