Thee NASA astronauts circled the Moon in December 1968 on a mission to prepare for the first human landing on the Moon the next year.  When transmitting to Mission Control in Houston, Frank Borman gave a Christmas Eve prayer which might scandalize avowed atheists or today’s adherents to the creed of political correctness.

John Boehner on Catholic Guilt

Ex Speaker John Boehner on Catholic Guilt

It is dubious whether Boehner’s pile of Catholic guilt was the deciding factor in new House Speaker Paul D.

So Natural Law is applicable only to those who intellectually adhere to it.  This sort of compartmentalization is common place among liberal Catholic politicians.  But if Vice President Biden is bidding to appeal to real Catholics in a proto-Presidential campaign, he has some soulful promises to keep.

Yogi Berra on Funerals


Yogi Berra, renowned major league baseball player and master of malapropisms, died on September 22, 2015 the age of 90. Notwithstanding his waggish wisdom about funerals, assuredly Lawrence Peter “Yogi” Berra was not forgotten as his kith and kin marked his departure from the mortal coil.
