There was no Convention Daily produced today. We think there should have been, so we have produced this edition. It is, of course, entirely unofficial and entirely produced by Anglicans Online. Writing is by ENS reporters and convention volunteers. Other days' issues are here.

Swan song

Deputies engaged in some antics during the shortened afternoon. Jill Ashworth, Upper South Carolina, said her deputation had conducted a highly nonscientific study of number of “trips to the microphone” by deputies. The results: tied in fourth and fifth places: William Doubleday of New York and James Bradberry of Southern Virginia, 17 trips; McGonigle of Texas, 25; Nigel Renton of California, 26; and – in first place – Charles Crump of West Tennessee, 32 trips.

Crump demanded a recount (on his 33rd trip).

The deputation from the Diocese of Colorado serenaded – even they admitted that “sing” wouldn’t be the right word – Chinnis, the outgoing president, with: “Happy trails to you, until we meet again.”
