Visiting high school classes at a Jesuit seminary many years ago, for a story I was writing for Northwest Magazine, impressed the hell out of me. I'd have to mention some of my classes in grad school and at Cal Tech to find educational experiences as intense and admirable. But these were TEENAGERS in high school! Studying Another Country by James Baldwin! Getting a better education than in most colleges, I expect.

Left a mark on me obviously. Jesuits impressed me, so I have this bias toward the new pope. (Also in the Army, a few buddies had Jesuit education, also impressive.)
