Of course some survive: St. Charles Seminary, in Overbrook, Pennsylvania, stands today in marbled admiration of itself, still readying young men for the archdiocese of Philadelphia. Once St. Charles was claimed to have the longest main corridor of any building in America. It is quite a corridor, polished and draped with heavy oils of bishops and former rectors. The seminary dates from a period when American prelates were putting up churches and schools as if Catholicism were a monopoly board. Edifice complex.

"With time, the joke evolved to include a freckled-faced Western Union messenger boy who went into the Pentagon to deliver a telegram on Monday and walked out Friday a full colonel; others insisted he only came out a major."
