THE TIMES they are a-changin

According to The Times (that's the NYTimes, just as NYC is The City), The Pope, Catholicism's Rock Star Deity is, finally taking a stand against sexual abuse of minors. Sorta.

The Boston Archdiocese selected a few victims to meet with the pope, and apparently told them at a Cheesecake Factory. I guess you have to do something while you're waiting for a table. And believe me, even the Archdiocese is waiting for a table at the Cheesecake Factory. Some changes in Cannon Law regarding sexual abuse of minors may be forthcoming. Though I'm tempted to say this is too little too late, I agree that it's good that Pope-Tart is at least acknowledging the white elephant in the room.

Personally, I feel these cases shouldn't be handled by the Vatican't at all. Molesting Priests should have to answer to Benson and Stabler. (The cheesecake would probably be better too)

Also, The Oklahoma City Bombings happened on this day in 1995. See the Original Headline here. They first suspected surviving members of the Branch Davidians. Good thing they didn't run with that...
