    So you bring in somebody from Fox News to help make your message more credible? Good luck with that.

    Vatican hires Fox’s Greg Burke to help shape media message

    Greg Burke, 52, will leave Fox to become a senior communications adviser in the Vatican’s secretariat of state, the Vatican and Burke told the AP.

      so, they think the solutions to their problems consists of:
      1. coming down hard on NUNS
      2. hiring this clown



    • Cha Eva

      To me they’re just exposing how gross they are. As if it wasn’t obvious enough before.

      The vatican has hired a former fox correspondent to become its propaganda-communications director.

      A work friend of mine moved to Rome to work for the Vatican press office. This was back in the early 1990s. She’s latina and we talked about her having to overlook the deeds they were doing in not encouraging responsible sexuality and family planning.

    – – — On Anniversary Of Title IX, Sec. Sebelius Says: Budget Cutbacks ‘Shouldn’t Mean Rolling Back Equality For Women’– – –

    – — – –This Saturday marks the 40th anniversary of Title IX, a gender equality in education effort from the 1970s. At an event at the Center for American Progress, Health and Human Services Sec. Kathleen Sebelius acknowledged the country still has a long way to go before it achieves true gender parity.

    Sebelius spoke about the huge progress achieved in 40 years toward a more balanced education system, particularly in the world of sports. But she also noted that women still face some discrimination, both in how they are currently treated at schools, and how they may be de-prioritized because of underlying sexism:

    We know that women still get fewer opportunities to play sports in high school and college, fewer scholarship dollars, and often settle for very inferior facilities and equipment. And especially in challenging times, we need to make sure budget cutbacks don’t mean rolling back the equality that’s been achieved for women. But as we acknowledge the challenges ahead, we need to celebrate how far we’ve come.

    Not Invited to Funeral
    – – —

    – – – Rodney King’s fiancée Cynthia Kelley is not invited to his funeral services — King family sources tell TMZ.

    According to sources, the services will be held next Saturday in Hollywood — but the family hasn’t contacted Cynthia since the day after Rodney died … and doesn’t plan to.

    We’re told Cynthia hasn’t made any efforts to make arrangements for Rodney — so the family doesn’t feel the need to reach out.

    We’re told the family is also still skeptical about Cynthia’s story — that she heard Rodney banging on the window around 5 AM Sunday and then heard him fall in the pool.

    The family doesn’t believe Rodney drowned on his own because — as one source put it — Rodney was always a great swimmer.

    Some family members don’t have any hard feelings toward Cynthia — but we’re told many don’t want to speak to her until an official cause of death has been released.

    – – – – –Celebrating Success: 40 Years of Pell Grants– — –

    – – — –Chances are you know someone who wouldn’t have gone to college without the help of a Pell Grant. Since 1972, more than 60 million Americans have received financial assistance to earn their degree.

    As President Obama said in a message commemorating the 40th anniversary of the enactment of this program:

    Forty years ago, our Nation codified a commitment to bringing higher education within reach for every American by creating the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant—later renamed the Federal Pell Grant after Senator Claiborne Pell, to honor his efforts in creating the program. On this anniversary, we reflect on four decades of progress toward fulfilling that fundamental promise and rededicate ourselves to making college affordable
    for all.

    – – – – -SNIP- – — –

    Senator Claiborne Pell, the chief sponsor of the program, liked to say, ‘Any student with the talent, desire, and drive, should be able to pursue higher education.’ Because of his commitment and vision, millions of students from poor and working class backgrounds received the economic lifeline they need to earn a college degree. The Pell Grant program has literally transformed millions of lives.

    — — – -Without the PELL GRANT- — I would NOT have been able 2 finance my childrens’ education. I am GRATEFUL.- –:>)

    LBJ finally winning his first ring reminded me of something funny I read at the Cleveland Plain Dealer site when he made “The Decison” to leave. An angry Cavaliers fan thought that since PBO, in his view, had no problem sticking his nose where it didn’t belong (auto industry, banking industry, healthcare) that he wished he would investigate whether there was some sort of illegal collusion between James, Wade, Bosh and Pat Riley. I remember laughing out loud when I read that. It was clear he was not a supporter but to him PBO inserting himself in that fiasco was far more important to him than interfering to save the aforementioned industries. The President’s opposition is extremely dangerous and often hilarious.

    – – — Obama doubles down on Bain– – –

    – – —President Obama is doubling down on his strategy to bash Mitt Romney’s record as CEO of Bain Capital despite squeamishness and even criticism from fellow Democrats.

    Obama on Friday called Romney an “outsourcing pioneer,” keying off a report in The Washington Post that found Bain Capital owned companies at the vanguard of the corporate outsourcing trend in the 1980s.

    Obama’s campaign followed up with a Web video Friday featuring deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter criticizing Romney from profiting off U.S. layoffs.

    “While Romney sent American jobs overseas and American workers out of work, he and his partners made millions,” Cutter says in the video. “So it’s no surprise why he’s so committed to outsourcing.”

    Kiddos, I don’t know what’s the matter with me. I had a very busy morning & was up early so I lay down for just a short nap this afternoon & slept for nearly 4 hours. I’m just rock bottom weary still tonight, not in my heart & mind but my body seems weak today. Maybe it’s just the heat which has been brutal.

    I am asking you all who go to church that tomorrow you would please pray that I be given the strength to do the work for these next months. This is no time for me to faint and fail. I have OFA work scheduled for next week & I am so tired. I know the work can go on without me but as long as I am breathing I would grieve not to be a part of it.

    Gracias, POU Familia! Sometimes the spirit is strong but the flesh is weak. My flesh needs to be whipped back into shape somehow! All prayers, good wishes & positive thoughts gratefully accepted. Kick this old Granny back on the road!!!

      The heat will do to you ag I felt the same earlier in the week. I didn’t feel like working out either. I just felt tired as hell and so did my daughter before she left for Washington. I have every confidence that you’ll be fired up ready to go,
