This just in from Michael Tinkler, our favorite cranky professor:

The 11:00 mass at St. Francis de Sales, Geneva, New York (http://www.genevarcc.org/) ends. I go to my car. The electronic carillon from Hell starts up – it’s playing “On the Street Where You Live.”

From Hell indeed! An electronic carillon is one thing, but some idiot programming it with pop tunes is another matter entirely. He’s probably hoping someone will open up a bar next door so he can be the world’s first carillon lounge lizard. Or maybe they’ll change the name of the church to “Our Lady of Luck” so he can play “Luck be a Lady!” What do they play on vocation Sunday? “It’s Raining Men?”
