Friday, I was honored to be the emcee at the Center for Bioethics and Culture Annual Paul Ramsey Award Dinner. The award was given to Mary Ann Glendon. The keynoter was my wonderful friend, Joseph Bottum. He really put the problems we face in our culture in general, and bioethics/biotech in specific, into proper context and import. “What I want to do tonight is present the argument from poetry,” he said. And so he did. If you want to hear it — and you should! — hit this link.

Oh yes, then there’s this: Bottum’s daughter is right: “‘Thwart’ really is a very good word!”
