Here, there and everywhere
A lazy holiday leads to a lazy compilation of thoughts apropos of nothing:
- Oh, you mean financially bankrupt? The San Diego Archdiocese thinks it may have a way to get out from under the crushing weight of priest sexual abuse lawsuits. Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Remind me again who the "values" voters are?
- Latest news from the political gymnastics front: Mitt Romney joins the NRA -- after endorsing gun control in previous campaigns. The move made in the last year undoubtedly mirrors that of his life-changing experience that led to his flip-flop on choice: a presidential run. Romney was undoubtedly hoping no one would would ask, so he wouldn't have to tell.
- Why is Tom Brady's love life top-of-the-front page news in the Globe? The Herald I can see. Maybe this is the explanation? And personally, if I was the company's highest-paid employee I would care about things like showing up on time?
- Did I get this wrong -- the issue is supporting our troops, not partisan politics? And a hearty round of applause to that top-notch prognosticator Nuri Kamal al-Maliki for his foresight on the success of the surge.
