More news from Boston: There's one blot on the escutcheon of pseudonymous namesake --- and the local Catholic hierarchy can't stop reminding me what it is. At least, so far as anyone knows, the original Charles Dodgson just like to watch, though, which is more than I can say for them.

Another accused pedophile has been officially described as "missing" for years by the church, even though they were still mailing him checks all the while.

At last report, Cardinal Law still won't consider resigning. At a sermon last Sunday, he reportedly analogized his relationship to parishoners as a marriage, where, when you have problems, you work it out.

He might want to consider whether depraved indifference to child abuse constitutes grounds for divorce...
