No stemming the tide?

Forgot to mention that I was listening to the Diane Rehm show on Monday, during our mad rush to get ready to leave, and was glad to hear that on a program about embryo – destructive stem cell research, she had Fr. Tad Pacholczyk of the National Catholic Bioethics Center as a guest. You can find a link to listen to the show here.

Also, over at Ignatius, Valerie Schmalz is keeping us up-to-date on the issue.

I’ve heard Fr. Tad speak in person. Very articulate, and just exudes intelligence.

Fr. Tad is incredible. I hope major TV stations latch onto him as a Catholic Church source. He’s coming to Colorado Springs on the 26th to talk to area doctors. Every diocese should find a way to bring him in for a discussion on the latest bioethical issues.

Isnt Fr TAd the one who previosly wrote about the Pre-Embryo theory early on before becoming a priest? Maybe I am confusing him with someone else.
He is at the NCBC now. I have read much of his testimony in NJ cloning bill and he is quite a speaker.. And of course, not to brag or anything, but he is Polish :-)

There is nothing I shall want
A couple of weeks ago, a memorial Mass for Michael was held here in Birmingham at the Cathedral. The bishop presided and offered a very nice, even charming homily in which he first focused on the Scripture readings of the day, and then turned to Michael, whom he remembered, among other things, as on

Revolutionary Road - Is it just me?
Why am I the only person I know..or even "know" in the Internet sense of "knowing"  - who didn't hate it? I didn't love it, either. There was a lot wrong with it. Weak characterization. Miscasting. Anvil-wielding mentally ill prophets.But here's the thing.Whether or not Yates' original novel in

I don't know about you, but one of effects of childbirth on me was a compulsion to spill the details.
