Dr. Seuss’ fourth book was published in 1940 and met with critical acclaim. It features an elephant whose large ears and long trunk provided the ideal infrastructure for the artist’s distinct lumps and humps.

La llamada Ley de Igualdad de 2021 (H.R. 5) ha sido aprobada por la Cámara de Representantes de los Estados Unidos, y ahora está en camino al Senado para su aprobación.  Si se aprueba en ley, esta legislación golpearía el corazón de la libertad religiosa en nuestro país.  El presidente Biden ha prometido firmar el proyecto de ley.  Como católicos, deberíamos estar muy preocupados.
