Anyone need a new pipe organ?

President Trump signed a religious freedom-related executive order on Thursday, sending me scrambling to write a coherent description of what was in it and what it would do. I’d covered a leaked draft of a similar EO in February, so it wasn’t my first rodeo.

The article illustrated the value of long-term, in-depth faith coverage because it challenged me to reference Supreme Court cases and government actions I’d covered in the past. My writing went pretty smoothly, which is somewhat rare when a deadline is fast approaching. And I got to make an appearance on the local radio station, a favorite adventure.

In other news, I finally reset the passcode on my desk phone, which I rarely use. It’s a little too late to respond to voicemails from last August, right? Whoops.
