Those places would make great bathhouses.

For years after moving to Chicago, I thought that the archbishop's residence was the Playboy Mansion. I'd been told the PM was on the Gold Coast so I assumed that it was the largest, poshest mansion on the largest piece of land. I was wrong. PM is small and modest by comparison.

The head parish priest in my old hometown Catholic Church quit/got booted while he was still relatively new a few years ago. He followed a woman and her teenaged daughter into the ladies room at a local restaurant to harass them for sex and exposed himself. It was in the local paper. What a scandal!

Cardinal George also moved some of the priests accused of molestation into his carriage house, if I recall correctly.

The new archbishop here(Philadelphia) has moved out of his official residence,on the ground sof the local Catholic university(St. Joseph's) and into the seminary(St. Charles Borromeo) down the road. Don't know what to make of that. I wonder if the seminarians like having the "boss" around all the time?

The Bishop's House here in Rochester, NY, was last used by Emmy Award winning Bishop Fulton Sheen. It was later converted to condominiums, one of which I owned for a short time.
