    Nothing to choose between the Grey Lady and Rolling Stone it appears. How the mighty are fallen.

    The MSM has been a fact-free zone for some time now. They solipsistically write about what they want the world to be like, and that’s good enough for their little echo chamber. Saw a post elsewhere denouncing EWTN for continuing to hold the actual, as opposed to the imagined, Church line about abortion and homosexuality. Justification? Pope Francis “ordered everyone to back off the subjects!”

    We have a free press.  That is undeniable.  I have always heard that such is a great and wonderful thing, something to be thankful for, and not equally enjoyed by all of the peoples on the earth.  What a crock my teachers handed me on that one.

    Dear Lord: “Please help me be a “spiritual but not religious type” (so I can see the view out the windshield instead of focusing on spattered bugs).

    Billy Graham remarked years ago that he believed his dog might be in heaven as a part of God’s arrangements for his perfect happiness. Even if Pope Francis has not said such a thing, there would be nothing wrong with it if he did.
