( 12:03 AM ) teahouse
Due to a fortuitous office location, I was able to witness the installation of New York City's new Archbishop today.
He seems like a genial, approachable figure. And he brings new blood and a fresh perspective to the office of Archbishop.
There was a big crowd, and lots of palpable excitement in Midtown as the procession of priests went down Fifth Avenue toward St. Patrick's Cathedral.
It was raining and drizzly in the early afternoon, but by the end of the ceremony, the sun had come out and the birds were chirping, and it felt like spring had finally arrived. #
