What's the record for most posts in a row?

And speaking of that record, where's Wonk?

Like a .230 hitting shortstop breaking up a no-hitter, I enter. Hi!

So, the missus and I recently discovered the joys of "Jane the Virgin." Two thumbs up. Funny, sweet, silly, and deep (well, relatively) all at the same time.

Also, I finally saw "Spotlight." Incredible. It took me back to conversations with a proud Bostonian and beloved former poster at the old place who was wrestling with the fact that her Church had been complicit in so much evil.

And seeing the movie reminded me of Cardinal Law, who managed to be both a courageous priest fighting for civil rights in his early career at various parishes in the South in the 1960s and the man who, as Archbishop of Boston, allowed his clergy to rape children with impunity and to cover it up. I suspect he will stay in Rome until he dies.

The scandal saddened me then and it saddens me now. It makes me question my residual faith. I guess, like the former priest turned psychologist told Mark Ruffalo's character on the phone after talking about the coverup, I remain a sorta Catholic because the Church is not the people who run it at any given time.

Finally, I saw Hamilton on a visit to TCOTU a few months ago. It is awesome, music and all (I know! Old white guy appreciates hip-hop influenced show tunes!) and made me want to read Ron Chernow's biography.

Carry on. And, uh, TM - if you want to keep going for the record, let me know and I will delete this post.

As a confirmed Catholic from Boston (nobody but us insiders actually reads this board, right???), I can say that it was worth the massive guilt I got from my Catholic high school and college attending parents when I confessed that I was no longer interested in what the Church had to say. And I don't buy the whole "the Church should not be condemned because of the bad acts of those who happen to be in charge if it at any given time" argument. Can you imagine any other institution that could sustain and cover up a massive pedophilia rape conspiracy and still be revered as hugely influential leader of morality and spirituality? It is fucking ridiculous.

Fringey felt Taxwonk was a pedophile and we left him a mod.

I like Taxwonk but I think it is a stretch to consider him an institution.
