Politico has two articles of note on the Ryan pick.
This one looks at his love-hate, mostly love, relationship with Ayn Rand.
This one looks at the Catholic vote in light of the Ryan selection.
Note To Readers: I am about to head up to Boston for the meeting of young theologians, the Catholic Conversation Project. They do not have wifi at the retreat center where the meetings are held, so I will not be posting again until Wednesday morning. Enjoy the break - I shall!
