We are blessed to have George Weigel come and talk to at St. Mary's (the Bush Presidential Library once and St. Mary's once) this weekend. I am very much looking forward to having the opportunity to pick his brain and ask him some questions.
Not only is he John Paul the Great's biographer, but he is very good with public policy issues as well as philosophy. On top of all that, he is a very accomplished theological writer. I consider him one of the most brilliant Catholics in the USA.
I don't necessarily agree with him, especially on his just war writings that he has done in First Things, but he always makes me think.
