New Archbishop for St Louis

From the St Louis website:

Archbishop–elect Carlson was installed as the fifth bishop of the Diocese of Saginaw on February 24, 2005 at the direction of Pope John Paul II. A native of Minneapolis, MN, he was ordained to the priesthood on May 23, 1970 for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. He was later ordained as an auxiliary bishop for his home archdiocese on January 11, 1984 and went on to serve as Bishop of Sioux Falls, SD, from 1994 to 2005.

He is admired by the Michigan canonist...

And AmPap tells us:

In 2003 Bp. Carlson told Tom Daschle he could no longer call himself Catholic, when he was his bishop.
