Well, this certainly is some progress from the Church.

The Vatican’s new No. 3 has accused Holy See officials of downplaying the clerical sex abuse scandal in the 1990s, saying they were generally skeptical of victims and often considered them “enemies of the church.”

Hey, who was leading the Church at that time? Oh yeah, a future Saint. Like this guy.

Still, it’s some progress that Church officials are admitting error now, twenty or so years later…it took them three-hundred-fifty years to apologize to Galileo.

On the other hand, maybe they are moving too fast.

German customs officials have intercepted a package addressed to the Vatican containing 14 condoms filled with cocaine.

Over Easy: Ode to Joy



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
