Posted on 09/10/14 at 10:19 am in response to Criminal charges in priest sex cases 'unlikely'

... I get that the statute of limitations in each of these 10 old cases has passed.

So, when can we expect the indictment of the Archbishop for covering up these abuses?

Surely, that's an ongoing thing and not subject to these legal barriers?

The word "media" is plural.

Posted on 09/03/14 at 10:46 am in response to Survey finds Republicans' biggest concern is not what you think it is

Apparently the concern for privacy ends at the bedroom door, because the typical GOPer wants to have a presence there.

Posted on 09/03/14 at 07:16 am in response to 'I'm here to listen': A Q&A with Gov. Mark Dayton

... which is not bad, and certainly above average for him.

Yes, Gov. Dayton missed the boat on the stadium boondoggle.

But the rest of your critiques are so far from reality that I'd want to bury you deep down in the line up, or bench you altogether.

"Sheriff Robin Cole says people can't usually shoot themselves more than once."

This reminds me of a piece Esquire magazine (remember them?) ran many years ago in their annual Dubious Achievement Awards feature. This feature poked fun at news stories from the preceding year, among other things.

The headline: Man drills seven holes in head with power drill ... and lives!

The story: Man dies after drilling eight holes in his head.

The late, great Arthur C. Clarke said it best: “The greatest tragedy in mankind’s entire history may be the hijacking of morality by religion.”

So, an auxiliary archbishop "asks for forgiveness for the church's shameful failures of the past."

The past? Really? How about the church's ongoing shameful behavior and continued cover-ups going on RIGHT NOW?

It reminds me of what William Faulkner wrote: The past is never dead. It's not even past.

Posted on 08/19/14 at 07:27 am in response to Cindy McCain will meet with metro prosecutors on sex-trafficking efforts

Good.

I hope the law can change the lives of these children and give them back some of their stolen childhoods.

Rolf, Jay asked you for the sources of the numbers you have been posting here.

I hope you can eventually do that.

Also, does any cost estimate for nuclear-generated electricity include the amortized cost of storing the radioactive waste for upwards of 10,000 years?

Let me answer my own question: No, they do not.

Because no economist or government analyst can even begin to estimate such a cost because ... I mean, how can they?

No single government on earth...
