Our New Governor

Butch Otter was sworn in today as the 32nd governor of Idaho. You can read about that here. You can read his inauguration speech here. He and our lieutenant governor are both Catholic, and not just the cafeteria variety. In fact, all major candidates for the office of governor and lieutenant governor were Catholic (albeit of varying orthodoxy).

I attended Mass this morning only to discover that 1) we were only having a communion service, and 2) exposition was cut short. As it turned out, there was a special mass in the Cathedral specifically for the occasion of Gov. Otter's inauguration (with the bishop presiding, no less).
