Rigolatte -- our Friendly, Neighborhood Opera Star -- found religion this morning at 7th and Montana. Actually, he found it some time ago. In his more lucid moments, he's been known to hop from table to table preaching the gospel and encouraging folks to sign-up for his sermons. This morning he was handing out religious literature and, much to my surprise, it was for one of the largest churches in Santa Monica. Their mission, it says, is "to form loving disciples who will transform the world." I wonder if they're aware that this particular disciple -- when he's not at mass -- spends his free time running up and down the center of 7th Street, flapping his arms wildly and belting out Opera Tunes. Now that's what I call a transformation ...!

Amazing, but does not sound to graceful.
