Thought of the Day

As Joan Vennochi wrote in the Boston Globe: "Like all figures in history -- and like those in the Bible, for that matter -- Kennedy came with flaws. Moses had a temper. Peter betrayed Jesus. Kennedy had Chappaquiddick, a moment of tremendous moral collapse."

Actually, Peter denied Jesus, rather than "betrayed" him, but close enough for Catholic-lite Massachusetts. And if Moses having a temper never led him to leave some gal at the bottom of the Red Sea, well, let's face it, he doesn't have Ted's tremendous legislative legacy, does he?

Mark Steyn


Massachusetts is Catholic lite? Not around Boston or New Bedford. Apparently Mr. Steyn missed The Boondock Saints.

Just because most or all of the residents of an area are members of the Catholic church doesn't mean that area isn't "Catholic Lite". Ever hear of "Cafeteria Catholics"? They're not considered "Real" or "Serious" Catholics.
Unlike most people, I hated Boondock Saints. Bonnie was great, Taj a little tame. We missed you.

I try not to be either a Cafeteria Catholic or a lapsed one. Not having non-stop success.
