Great post CS!

Do you have Showtime? have you ever seen The Tudors? they are running re runs now before the last season.

Fascinating the whole Lutheran ascendancy in England and the ironic nuances of Henry VII who went from a "Defender of The Faith" and anti Lutheran to his later rupture with Rome, over the years.

Take care left coast patriot!

Sorry Carol, had to delete my previous post made a mistake.

I taught American history and government for a number of years and always spent a great deal of time on the Constitution and the founders.
