Raised Catholic

If you are like me and you shop the bargain bins at book stores, flea markets, and book trains you sometimes come across an older book that catches your eye.  Raised Catholic was such a book for me.  I have read a few of these “catholic” books over the years and have found them to be funny, but felt that they dwelt too long some of the corporal issues relating to how discipline was handled in our schools.  I expected pretty much the same from author Ed Stivender, pictured here on the book cover with a yard stick, a popular “tool” used to deliver the aforementioned punishment.
