The Collaboration of Men and Women represents a step forward in the Catholic discussion of gender relations, but only a step. The document takes issue with the common feminist critique of “patriarchy” and “male-domination” which suggests that “women, in order to be themselves, must make themselves the adversaries of men.” It also takes issue with […]

Okay, I’ve read the new document and it is not, as advertised, a fire-breathing denunciation of feminism. How does The Guardian get away with so grossly mislabelling stories (“Pope warns feminists” as a headline when the pope didn’t write the document and it isn’t addressed to feminists, or “Bishops told to take hard line on […]

. . . for the same reason that the press doesn’t cover them that much. In the words of Neil Cavuto, They wonder why no one covers these conventions. It’s not because they’re pre-scripted. It’s because the script they have is so d*** dull! There, I said it. [Source] Well, every so often there’s an […]

Operations Note

in Internet

I’ve noticed the last few days that the blog has been responding sluggishly on its public side (i.e., when I visit it and load a page). After investigating it, it seems that the holdup has been in the calls it is making to other pages (e.g., to truthlaidbare.com’s eco-system or amazon.com). For some reason those […]

Know what this critter is? Neither, it seems, does anyone else at present. Yes, one of “nature’s special creatures” is now stalking the byways–and eating from the garbage cans–of Maryland. Fortunately, the critter seems to be non-threatening (thus far) and is reported to get along well with cats. Excerpts from the story: More than a […]
