I mentioned yesterday that an old friend had operated on Lyndon B Johnson. Paul Nener (The Rev'd Canon Paul Nener as he now is) had been a medical student with my cousin in Liverpool, and like my cousin had been a straight A's student; an erstwhile medical genius..
Having mentioned him, I decided to 'google him' to see what he looked like today; he is only just about recognisable from when we last met.
Having been a top-notch surgeon (you need to be, to operate on a US president), Paul later turned his back on medicine to become a priest.
I'm saddened to say, but I find this totally incomprehensible and shocking. Why someone with such obvious talent and knowledge should leave it all behind to become a purveyor of Fairy Tales, I really cannot fathom!
