Mayor Bloomberg’s jumbo soda ban may have been temporarily stalled, but it gave me a topic for my first piece for (subscriber only – sorry). One of the leading national scolds is New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg actually got the city to ban large sugary drinks over 16 ounces. The ban was […]

Kathryn Jean Lopez in National Review Online on Archbishop Dolan’s debut at Mass today: {Cardinal} Egan, echoing the gospel of the day, prayed that in the midst of economic and other sorrows— when “one can feel that somehow the Lord is not with us”—there would belief, not unbelief. He ended the sermon praying that the […]

Archbishop Dolan was easily forgiven when he jokingly claimed resistance to the idea of moving to Milwaukee. “Oh Lord, not me. I don’t know how to drive in the snow.” But other factors might have caused him to pause when the call came with his appointment to Milwaukee. Dolan’s successor may pause at his appointment, […]
