Even where there's good news, there's bad news. "Progress seen in Bethlehem stand off" and yet the Palestinians are executing their own people who are suspected collaborators with Israel. I guess they can't just sit around and wait for the Israeli Defense Force to kill them.
The Pope has formally acknowledged that child molesting does not belong in the church. That this most obvious point even needs to be said is a sign of how out-of-touch the church has been, and how little action has been taken in a scandal that has been unfolding for years.
Still, I get up each day and look for those little bits of good news, infrequent as they've been. What else can I do and still expect to survive?
