Banquet Blather, Table Twaddle

In Fred Moleck's latest column at GIA, we learn this little bit of his cv, regarding Ascension Thursday's past:
I must confess that somewhere in my post-Vatican zeal of the 1970s I led the parish’s school children in singing Blood, Sweat, and Tears’ “What goes up, must come down, spinnin’ wheel . . .” in the school’s parking lot as they released their helium-filled balloons after the school’s mass. [Why, of course he did]
(Those were the days when we were trying to be relevant in spite of ecological concerns, to say nothing of liturgical propriety. We were also really big on Godspell.)

Even better - a friend of mine said his friend had programmed "Leaving on a Jet Plane" for Ascension, simply because that was what was done in the past.

Then he educated himself about Liturgy and Music and realised that was a rather silly thing to have done. And he never programmed that song for Ascension ever again.
