St. Joseph Day Love Stories

St. Joseph (father of Jesus and thus "patron saint of fathers") was feted March 19 and May 1. Belatedly, we offer these love stories in his honor as well. First there's US Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan's becoming a judge (in part) because her father would read her news of the world every morning on the crosstown bus that took her to elementary school. And then there's the Facebook matchup made by Andy Spiers-Corbett, 39, and father Graham, after their 37 years of separation.

So Feb. 14 and St. Valentine gets a lot of press, but at least this year, we're May 11 and St. Joseph  and love between fathers and children is a much greater holiday.
