We’re such a wealthy country. We should give it away: “DHS reported how relatively few immigrants are being turned away on the grounds that they are likely to become a “public charge” — or individuals who depend on welfare programs — despite a 100-year-old law that’s supposed to prevent this.” Link. * * * * * * Anyone know: Is my sarcasm in the last blurb the official position of the USCCB on such matters (albeit more intricately nuanced)? I’m kind of under the impression it is, but heck if I know. * * * * * * * I guess one of the cooler Stations of the Cross is situated about an hour away from me. I pass it all the time (though I normally pass it on a freeway that is about 15 miles to the north): Treasure on the Detroit-Chicago Road: Historic Stations of the Cross.

Just because you watch a violent movie doesn’t mean you go out and kill some one. Haw, haw, scoff, haw: “Teaching parents to switch channels from violent shows to educational TV can improve preschoolers’ behavior, even without getting them to watch less, a study found.” Link. * * * * * * * Funny Fallon: “Scientists have discovered a species of fish that surrounds itself with uglier fish in order to look more attractive. However, scientists could not identify which sorority it belongs to.”
