I commend Russ Mitchell for his professional demeanor and the respect he should +Katharine, even on the touch questions. I loved the picture of her refueling her plane!

The interview was excellent as far as it went. I just wanted it to last the full half hour, but then we can't be too greedy can we :-) I agree with Catherine+, that Russ Mitchell did a fine job, and as I have felt each time I've seen +Katherine interviewed, she displays a graciousness, composure, brilliance that is, frankly, such a beautiful representation of her office and of Christ in her life. Thanks, Renee, for sharing the transcription with us. It's good to be able to go back over it again.
