Wake-up call

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

Pres­i­dent and Mrs. Bush went to the 7:45 a.m. Sun­day ser­vice May 6 at St. John’s Epis­co­pal Church at Lafayette Square, set­tling into a pew to hear church rec­tor the Rev. Luis Leon preach about love, or more specif­i­cally eros — erotic or ro­man­tic love.

“All of us who are mar­ried ought to know about eros,” Mr. Leon said. “It’s what might be called ‘hot love.’ ”

At which point the des­ig­nated White House pool re­porter, Jon Ward of The Wash­ing­ton Times, wrote that he and the rest of the con­gre­ga­tion were “now fully awake.”

“It’s not a bad thing,” stressed Mr. Leon, “but done by the wrong per­son, it can get you in a lot of trou­ble.” The rec­tor then ac­tu­ally men­tioned the in­fa­mous “D.C. madam” Deb­o­rah Jeane Pal­frey, who has spent re­cent days out­ing her ex­ten­sive list of Wash­ing­ton clients.

“Here in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., a lot of peo­ple get in trou­ble on this one,” the rec­tor noted.
