Newspaper Clippings

I have a stack of newspapers containing articles I enjoyed and want to bookmark. I also have a few other links to share.

  1. William Peter Blatty, writer of ‘The Exorcist,’ slips back into the light for its 40th anniversary
    This is a tremendous article, for although the intention is to highlight the movie before Halloween, you can see the article takes a 90 degree turn and shows his Catholicism and conservatism. Blatty just submitted a petition to the Vatican to call for the removal of Georgetown University’s Catholic and Jesuit designations.

    “If you truly love someone that you think needs to be in rehab, you’ll do everything you possibly can to get them into rehab,” Blatty says. The last straw, he says, was Georgetown’s invitation of Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, to be a commencement speaker in May of last year. Sebelius has a record of supporting abortion rights, and abortion is the issue that really sets Blatty’s nerves on fire.

    He describes, his voice trembling, a particular abortion procedure in graphic detail.

    He pauses. His voice is nearly a whisper.

    That’s demonic.”

    He also talked about how he believes these are “the last days”.

  2. Athletes Saying Goodbye to Gluten by Anna Medaris Miller
    I personally have found this to be true. Wheat causes inflammation for me. My feet are so sensitive now that even a small dessert with wheat one night my feet hurt the next morning. And so I avoid wheat, and most gluten. Dr. Davis of Wheat Belly is quoted throughout.
  3. In a similar vein, How Your Knees Predict the Weather: Granny Was Right Scientist Find Link Between Achy Joints and the Forecast
    As I get older, I find this to be true for me!
  4. Duke’s Mayonnaise: The Southern spread with a cult following
    Before I starting avoiding soybean oil, this was my mayonnaise of choice because it contained no sugar. This is an interesting history.
  5. The Legend of ‘Lone Star’: Was Washington’s football team named in honor of a Native American impostor
    For the record, I am not a Washington sports fan, but this controversy is making a fan of Dan Snyder. This article is the perfect example of revisionist history, making illogical conclusions from sketchy evidence. Sally Jenkins is an “Authority” on this subject? Please, this is another liberal media pressure tactic to change things in the name of anti-racism. This man nor his family cannot defend his name or reputation, because they are all dead. Whether or not Dietz was an impostor, he really was respectful of the Indian heritage and legacy and promoted their cause.
  6. Cache of Nazi-Seized Art Discovered in Munich Apartment
    We had a really great discussion at dinner last night over this. This just boggle the mind!
  7. Common Core articles:
    Maureen Wittmann: What Homeschoolers Need to Know about the Common Core
    WP: Catholic Scholar Blast Common Core in Letter to US Bishops
    Cardinal Newman Society: National Catholic Education Association Gets Gates Foundation Grant to Promote ‘Common Core’ in Catholic Schools
    First Things: Buying Catholic Support for the Common Core
  8. CDF directs clerics, faithful not to attend conferences favorable to Medjugorje
    This news item does point that Medjugorje might be disproven. Either way, this is a strong statement to not allow promotion.
  9. We are very sad in Virginia that the Republican party did not financially help Ken Cuccinelli. He could have won with a little more support. More here. Bottom line, while Republicans want to be more moderate, the Obamacare and other moral issues ARE important and voters are responding.
  10. The Home Front – Blackout Accessories
    This is so fascinating in giving a little history of Blackout during WWII in England.

I have a few more, but out of time!
