In addition to the people there quite a few exhibitors attended the men’s conference.

Adopt a Student helps people pay for Catholic education.

I should make it plain you don’t have to be Catholic to get that aid

Lighthouse Catholic Media Offers CD’s from great Catholic speakers to help evangelize the faith.

I have a few of these CD’s myself, they are first rate and will tell you a lot more about the actual Catholic Faith as opposed to what people say it is.

If your interest is more political then you might want to check out Catholic Citizenship

Would that Bart Stupak did.

Thomas Moore liberal Arts College in Southern NH had a booth:

Magdalen College also attended but didn’t go on Camera with us. Strangely enough The College of the Holy Cross, Assumption College and Anna Maria college, all in Worcester had no presence at all. You would think colleges in Worcester that proclaim themselves Catholic would bother to show up. Feel free to contact them and ask why.

A Vatican representative from Rome attended promoting pilgrimages to holy places. Journey of the Spirit is the web site.

This is exactly the type of woman (a faithful Italian) that my mother urged each one of her sons to marry. Alas for mom none of us did.

As a member of the Knights of Columbus I would be derelict in my duty to not give my group a plug:

There were actually three Knights booth there. I actually joined the Knights at the Men’s conference last year.

Finally you likely have heard of ETWN but you might not have heard of Catholic TV. If you haven’t Bonnie Rogers solves that problem.

And beyond that there was a dizzying array of devotional books available from many different vendors.

…namely Inside the Pelosi Sausage Factory. It is clear she has never met Mike Romano.

Update: Pundit & Pundette links to and re-uses the sausage meme of Strassel. They must not know Mike either.

When my kids where younger I used to get paper plates and we’d have pie fights with shaving cream pies in the back yard just because. I think life needs more of that!

…than a threat to prosecute you if you say the wrong thing in your country:

I would, however, like to inform you, or perhaps remind you, that our domestic laws, both provincial and federal, delineate freedom of expression (or “free speech”) in a manner that is somewhat different than the approach taken in the United States. I therefore encourage you to educate yourself, if need be, as to what is acceptable in Canada and to do so before your planned visit here.

And those free speech absolutists at Think Progress are celebrating in comments.

Now wasn’t the left always telling us George Bush was out to restrict free speech and Hollywood felt so repressed that Sharon Stone blamed Bush for not being able to kiss Halle Berry in Catwoman. I’m sure all those people on the left will complain about Canada doing their best China impersonation.

Anyone, Bueller? Bueller?

Hey none of these guys count. I’m waiting for those champions of free speech on the left.

These people have all the bravery of George Monbiot. Now if she holds a sign like this…

I guarantee our northern friends will leave her alone.
