Other news this Thursday

I have a dentist appointment later this morning, so I'll make this brief. Hopefully they won't find anything too terrible in there. Wish me luck and say a prayer.

Marci Hamilton at discusses here a list of actions that need to happen before the Church will truly have the sex abuse crisis behind it. It's basically a reiteration of what SNAP has been saying for a long time.

Ireland Online has a little blurb on Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Bertie Ahern's reaction to accusations that he is a pawn of the Church as Ireland continues to struggle through it's own sex abuse crisis.

In other news
Bob Woodward went and got himself ensnared in the Valerie Plame thing. A senior administration official dropped the name on Woodward earlier this year during a casual conversation and now here is Bob facing the fire.

My own take on the whole Namegate/Spygate/whatevergate is that while the name dropping is illegal, those who claim that it's some kind of payback against Ambassador Wilson for his trip to Niger and what he supposedly learned there need to realize that Wilson didn't learn much of anything there. Scooter is going to get a plea bargain (if he gets worse than Sandy Berger, that will be unfair), everyone will still think Bush 'lied' to the nation and the Republican Party, despite controlling the House, the Senate and the White House, will still be in disarray.
