My friend, the endlessly interesting and interested Rod Bennett, tells the tale of master animator Ray Harryhausen’s last great gift to the world, as well as offering more fun anecdotes about his own meeting with Harryhausen and his wife. POPCORN CATHEDRAL is well worth your time.
This being your blog, Mark, I clicked on that link thinking “But the former Catholic Archbishop of Seattle passed away in 2018! Why is this only news now, five years later…”
It’s like Ross Douthat’s columns from that same era were all either Doug Jones https://www.nationalreview.com/magazine/2018/03/05/a-fishy-left-wing-tale/ or Doug Jones https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/11/12/1714901/-Ross-Douthat-actually-makes-sense-on-Roy-Moore.
IOW, I speed-read-ed your header and (given the general focus of your writing) initially thought you meant this chap: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/25/obituaries/raymond-hunthausen-liberal-archbishop-rebuked-by-rome-dies-at-96.html
Only one of the two deals in seven-headed dragons.
