Saturday, March 13, 2004 Review ON WRITERS AND WRITING; Harvard's Working Poor:

"These first-person narratives were copied and passed around by hand in the midst of a three-year struggle between the richest nonprofit institution in the world (excepting the Roman Catholic Church) and the employees who feed and serve its people or clean and guard its property."

Except that the Catholic Church isn't that rich. Unlike Harvard University, there is no armed force to enforce the Vatican's directives to its Bishops. So the Harvard endowment far exceeds the economic force that the Vatican can bring to bear.
