    Drawn backwards, yeah. It appears to be right-side-up (the ribbon is hanging normally), but the front cover is blank and the cross is on the back cover.

    Jim, you’re causing me to have a moment here. I am NOT old enough for storylines I read in GA to now be appearing as flashbacks!!!

    Slaw is not any sort of dish or course. Slaw is somewhere close to garnish or accompaniment, not actual food of any substance. Similar to parsley.

    Dean & Brent was mostly a flashback.

    Personally, I’d rather see Luann catch up with her drama coachee tween (can’t remember her name) than have a week or two of Shannon.

    Wow, Bets! You made it six whole minutes before reintroducing a problem!

    Gee, Bets, maybe should run an online poll of your followers first.

    As a Catholic, I would like to think that some priest (his parish in Delaware, wherever he goes in DC, or his bishop in either place) is setting him straight by whatever means are needed (gentle conversation, ear-blistering invective or anything in between, but – I don’t need to know what’s happening as far as his own personal stuff. It gets a little more complicated with continuing/repeated public contradiction and distortion of Church teaching. That is damaging and is other people’s business (especially his bishops). That’s where speaking up comes in.As for the whole “denying Eucharistic food/medicine” bit… That’s a bit of a distortion. There are deep cautions on the consequences of receiving unworthily (and part of the job of priests and bishops to protect people from that). Professing the faith from one side of your mouth and contradicting it (especially publicly) from the other is not considered to be a good course to follow.

    As a person who aspires to be thinking, reasoning, ethical and compassionate – abortion kills another human being in favor of the concerns of some other human being. Plenty of those other concerns are legitimate and even major, but don’t outweigh another human being’s actual right to life. Abortion doesn’t solve poverty or background medical conditions or domestic violence. It just erases one of the human beings at the center of it (without due process, without cause, without advocacy, without appeal, without defense). It doesn’t require being Catholic to see that. ___ It doesn’t require being Catholic to see that Biden is wrong in advocating abortion. Yes, I’ve heard the “he hasn’t performed, sought, or paid for an abortion for anyone” argument – which is nonsense. He promotes abortion by relaxing regulatory controls within his discretionary authority. (He has certain responsibilities under law to protect some access to abortion while it is legal even if he thinks it’s abhorrent, but he goes beyond to promote) (and as far as “discretion” goes, I think lower public officials who are pro-life and enact “well-intentioned” legislation (or are just trolling for votes) like laws requiring abortion providers to have hospital admitting-privileges, identical to laws in other jurisdictions that have been struck down by higher courts, doesn’t do anything to help the cause and much to damage it) - It doesn’t take being a Catholic to see Biden is publicly contradicting the Church he professes, so there shouldn’t be any surprise if somebody calls him out on it. - It’s not quite right to say that only his local bishop has a right to say. A bishop has the right (and some responsibility) to say for his territory – so could say so for any time Biden visits his diocese. The bishops are trying to not have a patchwork and to actually have something they can agree on. -
