Haven't had much chance to think lately with all that's been going on except for some scattered thoughts -- just like the Conventional Wisdom Watch column in Newsweek.
The Holy Father's Visit
Press seemed to skip much of the expected negative reporting. Re-energized many American Catholics. Viva la Papa!! Now, come to the Midwest.
Thin-skinned Harvard grad can't even figure out how to pay incomes taxes in 17 states and we're supposed to elect him as our senator. Minnesotans can't figure Al out.
All over Europe, but Americans slow to warm to them. Why aren't the greenies jumping on this fuel and time saving idea?
Bridge problems and closings
Knee-jerk reaction to condition of other bridges in light of 35W bridge collapse deserves a big slap on the hand. If these bridges are a crisis now, they certainly were a problem before. Deal with it, boys.
Minnesota really is becoming a two-season state...road construction and snow plowing. Think spring.
City of Minneapolis
What are they thinking putting the squeeze on Sharing and Caring Hands? Don't bite the hand that feeds.
Father John Bauer's Thanksgiving Mass was beautiful. These new priests are amazing. Our seminary rocks.
Seriously, do we really care? Rigged, pre-planned, staged or whatever, I think I'd rather have a lobotomy.
UST Law School Dean
Gives Planned Parenthood volunteer the smack-down. Who'da thunk the law school had some semblance of orthodoxy. Pleasant surprise.
MN third in drunk driving, WI first
I do think I'm related to these people. Lock 'em up the first time. Throw away the key.
Changing of the guard
Archbishop Flynn retiring with a list of pros and cons. Thank you, Archbishop, for leading your sheep even though I didn't agree with you at times. Welcome, Archbishop Nienstedt, you've got some work to do.
