Last year during the 26 day Hunger Strike for Justice, a man who walked out of Holy Cross on the other side of the entrance suddenly turned around and walked right over to me.
He introduced himself as a Jesuit priest who lives in the community on campus and he energetically wanted to know what my point was, and I explained. And then he — obviously annoyed — pointed to the sign that said “WAITING FOR FR. BOROUGHS” and he complained that I was using vulgar words. I asked him which word in “Waiting for Fr. Boroughs” is vulgar: “waiting”, “for” or “Fr. Boroughs”.
He said it’s not right because the man just arrived!! I said I know and it is not my fault Fr. McFarland never addressed it. I said I will do what I said and wait for Fr. Boroughs however long it takes.
Tomorrow at Holy Cross, one of the three signs will say “Waiting for Fr. Boroughs”. I will have it for ten years. Watch. I predict ten years. I hope that Jesuit comes by again and sees for himself that like Fr. McFarland, Fr. Boroughs did not address it either and it is almost a year later.
