Play by the rules

We were just thinking—in light of the continuing difficulties with the Holy See’s management of the coverage of the Synod—that it would be a hoot, just an absolute hoot, if some prelate with a good memory (or who had done something really reckless during a misspent youth like learning shorthand) prepared his own summaries of all the interventions. We know, sure, it would be against the rules. But what about parrhesia or a lío or what-have-you? Why be rigid? We can be humane about these things, no?
