CONVERSATIONS WITH THE CARDINAL




Conversations with the cardinal | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes


 Is there someone in your circle that everyone wants to talk to,
be it for advice, 
to debate important matters, 
or simply just to pass the time with idle conversation?

Over the last three years, 
I've noticed that there are many who flock from far and wide 
to my backyard, to speak with The Cardinal.

Engaging in a bit of espionage, 
I've been secretly recording conversations and encounters with The Cardinal.
No sources -- just good, old-fashioned first-hand investigative reporting.
I can verify beyond a shadow of a doubt,
that all of these tête-à-têtes, did in fact, take place. 

Here are just some of the meetings I've witnessed.
