at U.C.L.A. in Los Angeles. He went with two Austin Interfaith leaders from Dolores
Church (Estela Fabian and Alice Gatica). When they got to the airport,
Brother Richard Daly was on the same flight. Small world.
There was a good number of CSC's out there: Brother John
Doran was one of the guides welcoming people into the basketball pavilion;
Fr. Bill Lies, Brother David Andrews were also there. There were
plenty of people from the Diocese of Austin, too: Bishop John McCarthy,
Sr. Mary Lou Barba, Sr. Lois Paha, Chris Attal, Teri Nira.
At the hotel, John ran into another Notre Dame grad, Mark

explained how the plane he and Joshua were in could not land until someone
came out and chased the cows off the runway! Things are different
