I agree 100% that Thomas Swift has dodged the question.

"In his statement Tuesday, Nienstedt said he ordered Auxiliary Bishop Lee Piche to oversee an independent investigation."


Yeah, right.

"Gross and Rothman also accused gun-control activists of advertising falsehoods when lobbying for their viewpoints."

Gross and/or Rothman: Please back up this assertion with specific instances when this occurred.

Thank you.

Marc, your reply reveals that you continue to lack an understanding of the difference between anecdotal stories and sound statistical evidence.

If Ember's piece moves the St. Paul Police and Ramsey County Attorney John Choi to remember what scoundrels they are dealing with when they are investigating the archdiocese, then it has served a great purpose.

(Provided, of course, that Choi and the St. Paul Police finally do their jobs and arrest those who have covered up the crimes of the serial child abusers in their midsts.)

A famous economist once said, "A capitalist will gladly sell you a rope today knowing full well that it will be used to hang him tomorrow."

And his opponent said repeatedly that he, not Cantor, represented "Real Americans" -- a GOP dog whistle that sneakily brought attention to the fact that Cantor is a ... (gasp) ... Jew.

Pandering to the bigoted base ... it's the Tea Party way!

1. "I object to using specious anecdotes to provide fodder to those that do."

2. "Helmets are absolutely helpful as long as you do not become airborne ..."

Statement #2, is false.

And your example of 20 years ago where you managed to survive dropping your motorcycle without going airborne is a specious anecdote attempting to prove statement #2, which, as I noted, is false.

Do you ever wonder why these "paramilitary forces from virtually every ABC department armed to the teeth with MRAPs, machine guns, body armor, and full camouflage uniforms" are outfitted that way?

Maybe it's because in this land of the 2nd Amendment, they know that there is a great likelihood that the perp they are trying to capture has, at the very least, a handgun -- and may also have an arsenal of weapons equal or greater to their own?

As the Cold War taught us, arms races...
