I think it's great news that Jeb is coming to the AMU event, and quite a coup for the school. Like Matt Bowman's clerkship with Judge Alito (now Justice Alito), and many other events, it provides a moment to take a break from the difficult business of birthing the various enterprises associated with the Ave Maria Foundation, take pride in their spectacular success, and be grateful for God's blessings on them.
