Reflections on Current Events

I am an avid reader of the daily newspaper and, as a survivor of some thirteen presidencies and wide variations in the American economy, I regard myself as having a worthwhile perspective on present-day events and concerns. Most recently I have contributed several posts on the sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church. As with my book reviews and travel photos, my past reflections on current events will eventually appear in this section of my site instead of on the section named blog posts.
