DOUBLE CROSSED

 

BEGGING FOR SOAP

    "'The species as a whole is fast disappearing, on the verge of extinction,’ writes Kenneth Briggs in ‘Double Crossed:  Uncovering the Catholic Church’s Betrayal of American Nuns' (Doubleday)."

    “…Conservatives pin the blame on assaults from feminism and secularism that undermined obedience, belief, cohesion and religious mission.”

“America’s nuns are fast disappearing,” by Richard N. Ostling, AP Religion Writer and published in today’s Intell but not posted online.

    I thought I’d begin today with this rather interesting story.  I find it rather “amusing” that the author considers nuns a “species” and what isn’t being blamed on feminism by conservatives these days?  The story goes on to state the following, which may  well  explain why  nuns are on the verge of “extinction”:

    "'Double Crossed' nicely portrays the existence of pre-1965 nuns, severely limited in contact with worldly amusements and outsiders, even their own families, surrendering personal identity to the group, carefully regimented in every way and often required to humbly beg their betters for basics such as a bar of soap."

WHAT’S UP, PRESIDENT FRY?

    “His [Republican gubernatorial candidate Lynn Swan] largest contributions were for $5,000, and he received two of them:  one from Lancaster resident Cara Keegan Fry, an assistant at Franklin & Marshall College…”

“Swann in trouble; Bush to the rescue,” yesterday’s New Era (click here). 

    There is no Cara Fry listed on the F&M Employee Directory (click here) but this would most certainly be Franklin & Marshall President John Fry’s wife who is named Cara (click  here  and page down to Fry's biography).  And this is not the first time they have given to the Bush campaign if this article from the May 2004 edition of the College Dispatch is accurate (click here).

    I’m shocked.  Really, I am.  We have lost over 2,500 soldiers in Iraq.  Scores of civilians are killed there every day.  President Bush thinks banning gay marriages is the most important topic in the land. 

    Fry is the president of a liberal arts college.  No wonder F&M still gives out an award in the name of an incest perpetrator, the Charles H. Holzinger Anthropology Award. 

    No wonder Temple turned him down as their new president (instead they picked Ann Weaver Hart, their first female president).  And rumors also have it he was recently being considered by Cornell, and he was also turned down there.

    In an article in the Intell on February 18, 2002 about his appointment as the new president it says, “He was among the finalists for the presidency at the University of Vermont and he is working on his doctorate in education.”  And he still is.  Before he applies for any more jobs at respected colleges and universities he should probably get his PhD first.

    And why did New Era reporter Tom Murse get the information on his wife all wrong and never mention she is the wife of  Franklin & Marshall's President?  Hmmm.  There will be more on this later.

GREEN BANANAS

    “Lindy Biechler’s killer should be nervous today.”

“Probers to killer:  We’re getting closer,” yesterday’s New Era, (click here).

   That is one of the most ridiculous opening leads I have ever read.  Biechler’s killer should have been extremely nervous every day for 30 years.  He should have been arrested years ago.  Why wasn’t he? 

    The article goes on to quote Richard Walter, identified as a forensic psychologist and a founder of the Vidocq Society as saying to the killer, “Don’t buy any green bananas.”  Lancaster County Detective Joseph Geesey is quoted as saying, “We’re about two steps behind them.” 

    I’m not sure if he’s indicating more than one person was involved or whether he used a poor figure of speech.  However, since they seem to feel they are going to solve this quickly, I will respect that and remain silent and give them two weeks to do their work.  There will be much, much more on all of this after that date.

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

    The article on the golf melee will come next week.  LIP News does not publish on Sundays in the summer.  Don’t worry, Marvelous Marv, I’ll catch up with you on Monday.

    Have a happy Father’s Day.  And in case Ron Harper, Jr. wants to know, no, I will not be calling my father.  My father should be in jail.  He does not have one redeeming quality.  Not one.  I will return to the incest story next week.
