What schools will provide the best education? What university will prepare young Johnny and Mary for a […]

Catching up on the week’s action, here are the most recent stories I did for Watchdog.org. You can always follow the latest articles by me, regardless of where they appeared, at my Facebook author page. Looking ahead to Monday, already loaded in the queue, is an article on a new report by the Wisconsin Institute […]

I am truly humbled and […]

Marquette University has a new university president, Father Scott R. Pilarz. I don’t think this will inspire confidence in Marquette’s alumni: Pilarz exuded warmth and easy humor throughout his remarks. He’s equally comfortable quoting 16th century poets and the poet laureate of his home state, rocker Bruce Springsteen. It was a work of providence, he […]

Don Walker of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel passes along the report that St. John’s, Georgetown, Seton Hall, Villanova, Providence, DePaul, Marquette and Notre Dame may form a new athletic conference of Catholic uniiversities.
