It’s been about ten years since I saw my last NHL games: Red Wings versus the Devils at the Joe. Since then, I’ve seen probably about a hundred minor-league and junior games, most in the USHL. I check my hometown … Continue reading
http://www.accessnorthga.com/news/ap_newfullstory.asp?ID=46898 Having lived in city neighborhoods as a child and young adult, I never heard concerns such as this. Where I live now, having a parish Catholic school as a neighbor can add up to 20% to the value of … Continue reading
Jeremy Lott sums up the state of affairs here: http://getreligion.typepad.com/getreligion/. He posits that the man’s support is waning, though a few bloggers are protesting they’re standing by their man. I wonder if the lack of secular press interest isn’t because … Continue reading
I was reading an interesting commentary in today’s Sunday paper (Kansas City Star) in which a columnist draws an unflattering comparison between Michael Dukakis and our president. Apparently, during the 1988 election cycle, a group had pieced together various tales … Continue reading
Hopefully this translates well to the web site. I was working on a story idea last summer and spent some time drawing a map. I prefer creating maps to stories, so the map was happily successful. I discarded the story … Continue reading

I was listening to ABC’s (Australia) eclectic weekly program of sacred music For the God Who Sings earlier this week at the office. (You can find it here: http://www.abc.net.au/classic/audio/; just scroll down to about the third program.) I was struck … Continue reading

It looks like the Eucharist is heading to be the battleground again in the abortion debate. Too bad, really. There’s still a lot of good energy left in the conflict on its own terms. Sorting it all out, this is … Continue reading
Not without sympathy have I read the numerous efforts to come to grips with the scandal of Deal Hudson by my conservative friends in St Blog’s. One blogger suggests (with a substantial stretch, I think) that the NCR has damaged … Continue reading
Ava inquired below about appropriate material for children’s liturgy. More people than you want to listen to have their own opinions on this. Obviously I have mine too. 1. Masses with school children should take the parish Sunday Mass as … Continue reading
