Acton Commentary

Otto von Bismarck, the 19th century German chancellor who launched the welfare state, would find much familiar in the policies of the Obama administration. “In a Bismarckian world, only government can set the national economy right,” says Anthony Bradley.

Video: Rev. Robert Sirico’s riskiest investment ever

One of the interesting things at the Acton Institute is that the brother of Acton Institute co-founder and president Rev. Robert A. Sirico is an actor.  A pretty famous actor, actually.  Father Sirico’s brother Tony is, in fact, Paulie Walnuts from The Sopranos.

Now, if you know anything about Paulie Walnuts, you know that he’s a pretty tough character: a gangster with few scruples about engaging in all manner of violence and mayhem and who regularly curses a blue streak.  And if you know anything about Tony Sirico, you know that-as his younger brother Robert has said on a few occasions-he doesn’t have to act much to play the roles that he has played.  So you can imagine that there was a touch of anxiety from certain quarters here at Acton when it was learned that Tony had been invited to introduce his brother’s keynote address at the 20th Anniversary Dinner that was held last Thursday at the JW Marriott Hotel here in Grand Rapids.

Well, we’re pleased to report that Tony successfully restrained his “French” in his introduction of his brother – “a real priest.” Watch the video at Acton’s PowerBlog.
