I did a real dumb thing a few weeks ago. (Voice from the rear: "That's no news. (Set on with your story.") Well, what I did was to read the issue of The Lutheran Witness devoted to expressions of opinion on the topic "What Synod Needs" meaning what the letter writers wanted from the New York convention. The results were a magnificent mixture of nonsense and wisdom; but it is probably true that the letters represented a fair sampling of synodicod thought without the usual sociological applesauce."
