Here is some really shocking news for you: The Latin Mass that has been in use for centuries is still valid (usually referred to now as the Extraordinary Form of the Mass). Now for more shocking news: The Catholic Church is still the True Church, and the Pope is still the Pope. You can read all about this stunning, new development here. Mark Shea points out that there are "people who have somehow gotten it into their heads that there are two Churches, pre-Vatican II and post-Vatican II." Hmmm...isn't that marked outside on the church message board? "St. Swithin's---a pre-Vatican II Church".

Here is part of What's Wrong with the World: Massive traffic jams. And it's getting worse. Commuters are wasting the equivalent of one to two weeks a year stuck in traffic. "Drivers waste nearly an entire work week each year sitting in traffic on the way to and from their jobs, according to a national study released Tuesday." You can read about it here.

Well, at least she was going to pay her ticket!
Well...isn't that what the [Nicene] Creed is for? To describe who God really is (and is not)? The "limitations" are there to make sure that we are proclaiming the Truth about who God is, and not error.

Stand up comedian Kathy Griffin won an Emmy last weekend. 'In her speech, Griffin said that "a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus."
She went on to hold up her Emmy, make an off-color remark about Christ and proclaim, "This award is my god now!" 'She is a fallen-away Catholic that became an atheist. Now I suppose she is an "Emmy-ist". Since she claims that the Emmy is her god now, it might be useful for her to inquire whether this new god will forgive her sins and lead her to heaven. You can read about it here.

Unfortunately, that's sure to be controversial in Europe and North America, where agenda has sometimes been allowed to triumph over Science, or even Common Sense. You can read about it here.

Apparently Superman voted in the Venezuelan election. Make that two men claiming to be Superman (or was it the same one voting twice?) And I didn't even know he was a Venezuelan citizen! You can read the story here. It's not clear if Superman voted for Hugo Chavez, but one of the "Supermen" was interviewed on state television. I rather doubt he would have been interviewed if he had voted for the "incorrect" party. The report unfortunately doesn't tell us how Batman, the Flash, or the Green Lantern voted.
