What's in a Title

Very nice pun with that title. I wonder how many will get it. Very few, I suspect, but then who am I to pontificate?

Clever Title

"ex cathedra" + "l". Clever! Very nice shot, too. Was this structure rebuilt? If it were in England, perhaps it might have been left as a lovely ruin, for picnickers to meditate upon.

Ex Cathedral

Your titles continue their brilliance!
