LOS ANGELES -- I've been here to attend the annual conference of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists, a terrific group of scribes that once had me as its president.
Another good source of news and analysis in the world of faith is the Pew Research Center. Lots of studies worth reading can be found there, too.
If I have time at the NSNC conference to write something for the blog I will, but don't count on finding anything new here until tomorrow. You can find out some of what we're up to at the conference by clicking on the link in the first paragraph above.
While I'm gone I also invite you to explore the various essays I have here on the blog under the "Check this out" headline on the right side of this page.
Miss me. See you back here tomorrow. Bill.
