Thanks for reading this epic longread, Julie.

I didn't paint any people, but I did paint the cracker and Blaine Island. Both from pencil sketches done on site.

You notice that three people in the article objected to the "question tables"--the most transparently ham-handed technique of keeping low information folk from coming down with any information from higher-information folk. If all I accomplish as a journalist is to allow people to mock this PR strategy in print and online, I can retire in relative peace. Really stunning to hear that the Catholic church is employing it thus. Not surprised. It’s a pervasive shuck.
