  • [Catholic Caucus] Saints Simon and Jude, Apostles (Gueranger)

    10/27/2017 9:38:58 PM PDT · by CMRosary · 1 replies
    Red Double of the Second Class INSTEAD of thy fathers, sons are born to thee. Thus does the Church, disowned by Israel, extol in her chants the apostolic fruitfulness which resides in her till the end of time. Yesterday she was already filled with that loving hope which is never deceived, that the holy Apostles Simon and Jude would anticipate their solemnity by shedding blessings upon her. Such is the condition of her existence on earth, that she can remain here only as long as she continues to give children to our Lord; and therefore, in the Mass of...

    Publishers Weekly ^ | 7-7-17 | John Maher
    At a rain-soaked rally on July 7 in Midtown Manhattan, about 100-150 fans and a large contingent of police lined the sidewalk by S&S's offices. There, just after noon, Yiannopoulos announced that he had filed a lawsuit against Simon & Schuster with the Supreme Court of the State of New York earlier that morning. S&S, he said, let him keep $80,000 of the advance he had been paid. He is seeking damages of "at least" $10 million. "They have to pay for silencing conservatives," he said at the rally. "How many books could I have sold with their marketing muscle?"
  • 'Panic in Progressive Park' -- What If Trump Is Actually Good?

    If you thought Trump Derangement Syndrome was a tad excessive, as they say, you ain't seen nothin' yet. To channel an old Pacino flick, opening now for Oscar season, it's "Panic in Progressive Park." Reason for the panic -- the dawning realization, repressed and often unrecognized though it may be, that Donald Trump may even a be a good president, possibly a great one. Then what? If anything could cause panic among liberals, progressives, and the media (apologies for the redundancy), that's it. And Trump has certainly hit the ground running with more "vigah" -- this time to channel an...
  • Doctors Issued DNR Order For Disabled Newborn Baby Without Telling His Parents

    baby named Simon Crosier lived only 88.5 days due to an unwanted Do Not Resuscitate order, but his short life is being honored by a new bill in Missouri called ďSimonís Law.Ē When Simon was born with the genetic disorder Trisomy 18, some doctors labeled him as ďincompatible with life.Ē Unsurprisingly, many mothers of children with the condition are encouraged to have abortions, but Simonís parents refused. Even though babies with the condition tend to live less than a year, Simonís mother Sheryl Crosier said she believes that their lives still should be fought for as hard and long as...

    Simon leaps to credibility in GOP race 20-point jump in poll has some calling him 'Superman' By Timm Herdt, State bureau chief Anyone who happened upon one of the televised Republican gubernatorial debates while channel surfing might have paused, thinking he had stumbled into an old episode of "Superman." That earnest, mild-mannered fellow with the glasses and a square jaw? Was it Clark Kent? No, the name is Simon, Bill Simon. More formally, it's William E. Simon Jr., the namesake of a man who made a mark on Wall Street and the national political scene as President Richard Nixon's treasury ...

    60 Minutes correspondent Bob Simon died Wednesday evening in a car accident in New York. The CBS newsman was riding in a livery cab that struck another car and then crashed into a median on the West Side Highway, his network confirmed. Simon, the recipient of 24 Emmy awards, began regularly contributing to the Sunday-night newsmagazine in 1996. He also was a correspondent for 60 Minutes II; when that series wrapped in 2005, he worked full-time on 60 Minutes.

    That song came into my head today for no good reason. I was much younger back when it was released in 1970. The recording still resonates today. I say recording, and not just the song, which was beautifully written. In fact, Paul Simon (formerly married to Carrie Fisher) said that there are times when he considers this one the best song he ever wrote. The song starts in a subtle way, like little waves lapping on the shore. There is gospel styling of the lead piano, a promenade becomes a dirge. Then the soaring tenor of Art Garfunkle. Simon asked...
  • Is Hillary planning to admit to some of her lies?

    05/30/2013 5:44:03 AM PDT · by servo1969 · 23 replies ^ | 5-30-2013 | Bookworm
    For those of you who always thought that Hillary was lying about everything, youíre about to be proven right. Moreover, the news is going to come from a very unexpected source: Hillary herself. The National Enquirer, which has stuck very close to honest reporting since getting burned in a long-ago libel suit, reports that Hillary has decided to stop the lies and tell the truth in an upcoming memoir. Simon & Schuster will pay her $25 million for writing the book, which she hopes will inoculate her 2016 presidential run against any future ugly revelations. According to the National Enquirerís...

    The Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) is calling on President Obama to publicly condemn the anti-Semitic call for jihad against Israel by the Muslim Brotherhoodís Supreme Guide, Mohammed Badie. The SWC also called for Obama to cut off all contact with the Muslim Brotherhood until the threat is retracted. Al Ahram, Egyptís largest newspaper, reported Badieís speech in which he said: "The Jews Ö have spread corruption on earth, spilled the blood of believers and in their actions profane holy places, including their own." Badie urged Muslims to confront Israel ďthrough holy jihad, high sacrifices and all forms of resistance Ö...

    Forgive me for rehashing Wednesday nightís debate yet again, but some of the postmortems impel me to do so. Iím not talking about the comical excuses for Obamaís failure like the poor fellow who thought Mitt Romney was carrying a crib sheet and then had to admit it was a handkerchief. Or the well-known massage enthusiast who argued the difference between the candidates was due to the Denver altitude as if this were not a presidential debate but an abruptly scheduled NBA doubleheader. No, Iím talking about the more serious explanations for the presidentís incompetence Ė that Obama was either...

    Top 10 Lawyers Working to Improve the Food SystemPosted on July 5, 2012 by Michele I admit this post is somewhat self-serving. But I am getting weary of so many lists (like this one) celebrating heroes of the food movement that leave out an entire category of professionals that deserve a little respect. They may not be as famous as Alice Waters but they are working just as hard, maybe even harder. So here, in no particular order, are ten lawyers doing critical work to improve how we eat. 1) Andrew Kimbrell, executive director of the Center for Food Safety...

    Nearby today readers will notice excerpts from a memo written to Ronald Reagan by his economic advisers between his November 1980 election and inauguration. We share the memo because it shines a historical perspective on our own economic dilemmas as the Presidential race hits its Memorial Day turn. The memo was sent to us by George Shultz, who later became the Gipper's Secretary of State but had served previous stints at Treasury, Labor and the White House budget office. The signers include some of the last century's most consequential economic figures, notably the great Milton Friedman, tax-cut evangelist Jack Kemp...

    Long past the time when it was debunked that Tucson shooting suspect Jared Lee Loughner might have been motivated by talk radio or TV, NPR was still entertaining the "vitriol" attack line, as anchor Scott Simon interviewed liberal St. Petersburg Times TV critic Eric Deggans on Saturday morning's Weekend Edition. Simon even bizarrely claimed that this kind of violence didn't happen when "63 million people watched Walter Cronkite every night."
