“Despite my fears and concerns, I showed up anyway. I needed this time with my son. I want to be part of this journey. I believe I can teach them the game and preserve the value of their boyhood at the same time. I only know a few of the boys, with the exception of my own child, they look at me sideways, thinking A Mom coach? I jump in, demonstrate, instruct and their response is instant. I am enthusiastic by nature and a lover of children, but it isn’t until I scrimmage with them one afternoon that they swallow me up as a part of their team and we never look back.” —Janell Burley Hofmann: How I Found Joy in the Pain and Agony of Youth Sports
“While we believe that employers can use testing as one of a variety of tools to help guide employees suffering from substance abuse disorders into treatment –- which as we announced yesterday is not a moral failing but a treatable disease -– it is certainly not our policy that every employer in America ought to test and punish employees.” —Obama Administration Pushes Drug Testing in Workplace, But Not For Everybody
“I am happy to report that Our Lady of the Lake parishioners have been overwhelmingly and, thus far, unanimously supportive of the decision I made NOT to gather signatures in support of this Referendum. The standing ovation experienced during one of the Masses says less about me and much more about the health of this parish. I only wished the archbishop could have experienced the sustained applause - the ‘sensus fidelium’ - of the people. He needs to listen to this ‘voice.’ That is my prayer.” —Rev. Tim Clark Applauded For Marriage Equality Stance
“I completely understand that children have a tough time with air pressure on their little ears & they cry when the cabin pressure changes. That is not what is being outlined here. There are a lot of children being raised to expect constant and immediate gratification of all their whims. They have no ability to entertain themselves or the discipline to interact socially in public situations. Air travel is in no way conducive to children raised this way. Most children are well behaved & actually quite delightful to travel with and I travel at least 100k miles per year. If an airline wants to create a portion of the plane for people over 12, no problem. If an airline wants to ban infants & young children from business and first class, no problem.” —
