    Captain Jeff,

    I found your first four podcasts hiding at http://captjeff.libsyn.com/. Is Liberated Syndication looking for more money from you?

    In episode #2 you promised to talk about Saint Joseph of Cupertino (is he Apple’s patron Too?). I found the following on Wikipedia:
    Saint Joseph of Cupertino (Italian: San Giuseppe da Copertino) (June 17, 1603 – September 18, 1663) was an Italian saint. He was said to have been remarkably unclever, but prone to miraculous levitation and intense ecstatic visions that left him gaping.[1] In turn, he is recognized as the patron saint of air travelers, aviators, astronauts, people with a mental handicap, test takers, and weak students. He was canonized in the year 1767.

    Patron of a comedic combination. 🙂 🙂

    Re: part 2 conversion story. I can understand the reason for your search for a parish that had a music ministry appropriate for your skills and mellifluent voice. I was attending a convention of Whidbey Island about 15 years ago; on Sunday I found a nearby catholic church and was shocked that ALLELULIA could be sung so sorrowfully. It was just a week or two after Easter –everyone should have been happy that lent was over!

    God’s blessings abound because you are around. When ever you fly there is a VIP on board, so make the landings smooth.

    It was nice to hear about your love of good music in church. I recently had a mini-rant on my blog about music. It was in a post about Bob Dylan. Bob Dylan was to play for Pope John Paul II, but Cardinal Ratzinger tried to not let that happen. He was not in favor of rock music. Well, the performance happened and the Pope (JP2) did a sermon on “Blowin’ in the wind”. Here is my rant about music.

    “I’m totally behind the Pontiff trying to make the music of church more reverent and more Catholic. Latin seems to be abandoned in many parishes and with it, the ancient melodies. It’s tough for me to wrap my head around singing second-rate jingle music from the 70s when we have mass music by Mozart, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Dufay, and Palestrina and more. While there are loads of great rock and folk songs to sing for edification, they are not for mass. What do you think?

    It scares the hell out of me that a pilot will have NEVER flown a live passenger aircraft before the paying customers are on board. That would be like a surgeon watching video and never doing a residency.
