Play Ball

To mark a week since his installation in Gotham (video/homily), Archbishop Tim Dolan began one-on-one sit-downs with the city's media outlets yesterday, tackling questions of same-sex marriage, parish closings, Notre Dame's commencement speaker and his predecessor's midnight musings on priestly celibacy both in print and on the TV:
