Sunday in Lakeland Florida
In the morning we eventually find St Anthony's Catholic Church, just north of Interstate 4. There is something screwy about Google maps as they have the location right for the school but wrong for the church. Here is a lead to their website. Miracles as usual on Sunday morning: the Word becomes flesh.
Then, off to Joker Marchant Field in the afternoon where the Detroit Tigers are hosting a game with the Houston Astros. A lot of fairly prosperous fans are in attendance. I guess they must have moved from Detroit down to Lakeland. An article by Ed Glaesser in the op-ed section of the Friday, 25 March, Wall Street Journal, which I read after I returned to Billings, may give some hints as to why these people are in Florida rather than Michigan.
