Another morning spent on a few hours of reading the newspaper. I am impressed with President Bush's speech to congress. The Age newspaper had the full text, but unfortunately The Australian only had an edited version.
Yesterday I went into the city and saw the movie A.I. It was a thought provoking movie, rather than an action packed one. I was impressed with it.
The first reading at Mass today is from first letter of St Paul to Timothy (1Tim 6:13-16). It begins:
I think it contains important things I have been writing about regarding liturgy: "truth ... no faults or failures". It also refers to "duty". There is a report of similar language with the word "obligation" by www.catholicnews.com by Archbishop O'Brien who wrote about the U.S. response to terrorism ``need not arise from a backlash of anger'' or retribution but out of ``a reasonable obligation of immediate and long-range self-defense,'' (www.catholicnews.com)

Richmond lost to Brisbane tonight in the Australian Football League preliminary final. The final score was:
So they exactly doubled our score. Brisbane have won their last 15 games and tonight they had a home ground advantage. Next week they play Essendon at the MCG for the Grand Final. For Richmond I think it has been their best year since 1982, when they lost the Grand Final. I watched the game on TV. Paul Broderick was carried off at the end, with it being his last game.
When I was in the city yesterday I bought "The Kung Fu Book of Caine" by Herbie Pilato. Its about a TV series with a Chinese monk in America's wild west, that was made in the 1970s. In the Preface Herbie Pilato writes:
Its an interesting book. It includes a description of the main character used by those working on the show, on page 27:
It is interesting to read about how the story is presented, particularly with flashbacks. Maybe I will try using them more in presenting my story.
