Now we are just like Paris. All we need is Le L'ouvre. Oh wait, we have Le Butler.

How utterly small of the diocese of Cincinnati! Bishops and archbishops have too much time on their hands. They need to spend more time reflecting on their own sins and leadership failings; that would take up a lot of their time leaving Catholics free to make their own moral decisions.

"The students all knew about this, so hopefully they had time to decide not to use [drugs], so they can participate in their fall sports,” said Kimberly Poma..." - I think Ms. Poma might want to re-word her comment. She seems to be saying, hey we gave them ample time to get clean so that they could pass the test and play football. That's all we're interested in.

Rev. Bonnot may be right about the immorality of football, but prohibiting the game? You might as well ask the wind to stop blowing or the snow to cease falling. Football has replaced that nice, pastoral game baseball as the national pastime and there is no turning back. Incidentally, Father, have you watched ultimate boxing on TV? Talk about immoral "sports."

Well put. I hope the church leaders are listening. Yes, of course bishops, archbishops and cardinals believe they are royal princes. Why else would they flounce around in watered silk capes, lace surplices and silly hats and be addressed as "Your Excellency, Your Grace and Your Eminence. Card. Dolan may be the poster boy for the ultimate in royal extravagance but many others aren't far behind. (I don't know where Bishop Murry lives so I can't say whether he lives in luxury. I hope he doesn't). Christ would be appalled if he came back and saw how the descendants of his hand-picked twelve have turned into a group of one percenters. Francis will have to do more than live simply in order to pry these princes from their pompous perches. He will need to come down hard on the offenders. I don't know if he's up to the challenge.

This story doesn't tell us very much. The diocese's reluctance to provide complete information creates ugly suspicion and speculation. This story should have remained unpublished until all the facts are available.

OK, but don't say I didn't tell you. And whether President Tressel "loves" being president is to be determined. After dealing with the unions we'll see how much he loves it.

Some say that Mr. Tressel is just a football coach in a job for which he is unsuited. But I say he is essentially a politician, and a very good one, which makes him ideally suited to be a college president. And as a politician, he most certainly has his sights set on other political jobs that will take him away from Youngstown -- maybe back to Columbus as, oh I don't know, governor of Ohio? Or perhaps to DC.

The Bible is a book of faith. Those who believe it is the inspired word of God do so from faith alone. No one will ever prove it is actually God's work or even that God exists. So the Bible people should not try to push the Bible on on those who are not Christians.
