Church has two hickeys!

I don't know why I find this funny, but I do. The Archbishop of Washington DC for many years was James Hickey, who became Cardinal Hickey in 1988 (the day after giving me the Archbishop's award at my high school graduation; I was also a member of the Chess club for a while, in case you were wondering.). Cardinal Hickey retired a couple of years ago.

In 1991 the diocese of Perth in Australia received as its Archbishop...James Hickey. This means that, for about 10 years, the Roman Catholic Church had two Hickeys. I find this amusing, even if you don't.
