If they ever heard the way that psycho really thinks… Scenic design, James Fitzsimmons. Costumes by Robert Hose. Unit manager, George K George. Sell that stuff about a man among men…to those morons out there? Shucks, I sell them chicken fertiliser as caviar. I can make them eat dog food and think it’s steak. Sure, I’ve got them like this. You know what the public’s like, a cage full of guinea pigs. Good night, you stupid idiots. Good night, you miserable slobs. They’re a lot of trained seals… I toss them a dead fish and they’ll flap their flippers. Let them listen, please! Marcia. Why, he’s a monster! –Larry “Lonesome” Rhodes

A few months later his father asked Calabrese to join him for a coffee. They met at a lock-up garage used by the crew. “As I opened the door I realised, oh shit! He’s setting me up. He slams the door, turns and sticks a gun in my cheek. Then he says: ‘I would rather have you dead than disobey me.'” Calabrese started sobbing and begging for forgiveness. “Somehow I got out of that garage. As we got back in the truck, he started punching me and back-handing me in the face. My tears were rolling down and all I could think about was how I could never trust this man again. From that day on, I have never trusted anybody. Nobody.” – Ed Pilkington

Someone in a red hat sticks out in a crowd. Francis’ vision for the church reflects issues close to his heart: refugees, migrants, the poor; interreligious understanding and cooperation; reconciliation and peace building; evangelization; concern for the environment; concern for the poor and marginalized; reaching out to indigenous people; interreligious understanding, especially with Muslims. Almost all of them were made bishops or Vatican officials by Benedict or John Paul.

Dear World, I am a sixty-three year old retired divorced guy raising a tween-age son. I graduated from college in 1976 with degrees in political science and English. Reading a comments section on an article in THE HILL this morning I ran into a person claiming to be a Democrat but accusing the party of being “liberal fascists,” etc, etc. Is that a thing? Have people lost all understanding of what terms actually mean? Leftist, right-winger, fascist, communist, liberal, conservative. Hitler/Fascist Mussolini/Fascist Churchill/Imperialist-Capitalist Cabot-Lodge/Republican Nixon/Republican FDR/Liberal Democracy JFK/Moderate-Democrat McGovern/Liberal Sanders/Democratic Socialist Mao & Stalin/Communist. What is “left?” what is “right?” today? The figures of speech are losing all meaning. Where does Attila the Hun fit in? My question for YOU is this: Is there a “spectrum” which shows who is who?what is what? Right? Centrist? or Left? In degrees? Can we chart where modern day groups fall, like colors in a rainbow, or on a spectrum which would accurately delineate the difference between who is LEFT? and who is RIGHT? Sincerely, John Keenan
