RE: My Catholic con­ver­sion and things that fol­lowed (Aug. 5)

Spec­ta­tor colum­nist Deirdre Pike says she has found role mod­els and a sense of so­cial jus­tice af­ter be­ing bap­tized into the Catholic Church.

I too have found role mod­els and a pro­found sense of so­cial jus­tice.

Robin­son per­son­ally ac­cepted the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Pub­lic ser­vice on be­half of the Globe for the Spot­light in­ves­ti­ga­tion he led into the Ro­man Catholic clergy sex­ual abuse scan­dal.

Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think? Phil Beard, Dun­das
