What a disappointment this book was for me. Or maybe more to the point, what a disappointment Grogan is to the memory of his parents who remained devout Catholics their entire lives!!

Maybe it is just me, but I don't find the humor in reading about Grogan who as an adult (by age, not actions) stood at his fathers sickbed along with his brother and couldn't remember the words to the Our Father and just started saying blah, blah, blah.....
His parents gave him every opportunity in life and that is the best he can do?
