Drew loses his first tooth
It happened this morning at 9:30. His bottom front right tooth finally
fell out while eating a piece of rye toast. I'll post a picture later.
It's bittersweet because it's a right of passage but I keep telling him to
stop growing up! Way to go buddy, hope the tooth fairy stops by.

Having a great time in Hershey. We arrived yesterday a bit before 11 am.
Got into our room (4838) then went to lunch at Bear's Den in the Lodge.
Battery dying, finish this later.

Government As Dietician
Here's a quick heads up, agricultural and food industry lobbyists have their filthy fingerprints all over this crap. Don't rely on the government to tell you how much and what to eat. If you do you'll end up obese like a large segment of our population, just the way food companies like you.

Pope To A Generation
People are out extolling the accomplishments of this pope and what we can expect in the future. I find it curious that the child abuse issue has not been raised. Perhaps this is out of respect.
I certainly haven't followed this issue closely, but do come across it in the news as stories break. But it seems there was a a concious effort to cover up what was going on instead of dealing with it head on. And this dealt with children, the most innocent among us. Frankly it is one of the main reasons I have drifted away from institutionalized faith.
Unless convinced otherwise, this taint on the Pope's reputation/legacy outweighs the other positive aspects of his tenure. Especially because this was a Pope who held him self out as a true friend of the youth of the world. If this is so, isn't there a sense of betrayal given what transpired during this sordid period in the Catholic church?
Perhaps I'm too harsh in my judgement. Like any large organization, maybe the Pope never really got involved in micro affairs, if you can call something that threatens to bankrupt some churches micro. Akin to what is happening in the current corporate scandals dealing with Enron, WorldCom and Tyco, maybe the highest up just didn't know what was going on.
But just like in those secular cases, I don't buy it. And given that, I hold this Pope accountable for his complicity in a despicable chapter in the churches history.
