POSITRACTION: Priest stopped going in the correct direction


Boston priests say they understand police policy at Marathon bombing site
CWN - May 10, 2013

*** begin quote ***

Two Catholic priests who were turned away from the scene of the Boston Marathon bombing have said that they understand the reasons why police refused to allow them access to wounded bombing victims.

Father Tom Carzon, OMV, said that media reports suggesting tensions between police and priests were mistaken. He told the Boston Pilot, the archdiocesan newspaper, that he understood the desire of police officers to keep people away from what was still considered a danger zone.

*** end quote ***

While I understand that the police have a tough job, I don't understand by what authority they can prevent the clergy to an area?

I don't want to be an asshat, but the clergy are not tourists. And as smart people, they know the risk and how stay out of the way. If they are willing to risk their lives going into danger freely, willingly, and intelligently, then why should they be prevented from doing the Lord's work.

I find it inspiring when people go towards danger to help. Hope I have that type of courage when the time comes.

I'd suggest that the clergy have some serious conversations with the police about the First Amendment.

And may all our challenges be much smaller.

[JR: Guess he want's me to react to it. OK. We don't have "honest money"; we have ever devaluing Gooferment IOUs. Honest commodity money would be fair to the pensioner, the saver, the poor, and the "little guy". Crony Capitalism does things like price controls to support the "friends" of the political class. Otherwise, how do you explain things like diary price supports, sugar parity, and -- my favorite -- pay "farmers" for not growing stuff. Funny how those "farmers" are big political contributors or politicians and bureaucrats themselves. I'd like to see a more honest society with much lower taxes so I could be even more charitable. Unfortunately, the Gooferment steals from all of us.]

[JR: Enough a reaction?]

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) has two updates

Good Afternoon All,
Just a couple of further updates on our prayer efforts.
A prayer of thanks are in order for my good friend and fellow Jasper, Chuck Wichtendahl. '61 for whom we have been praying. I spoke with his wife Peggy this morning and Chuck is doing very well. His send home date is 5/23 and they are working out details for necessary continued P/T. With the seriousness of Chuck's brain bleed, it is really amazing that he is bouncing back as quickly as he is. His wife and family attribute that to the power of prayer guiding the MDs. Peggy and their family thank you for all your prayers and good thoughts. Please keep up the volume. Stitches are out, hair is growing back, muscle movement has improved but Chuck is not totally out of the woods yet.
John Reinke, Jasper Jottings, has let us know that his friend Pete Gunston is still in ICU but doing better. Pete's Sugar count is Normal, no word yet on his White Cell Count. As John says, they may " demote Pete to a real room or even send him home (kick him to the curb I think  is what John said......)" Thank you for your prayers and good thoughts. Please keep Pete in your prayers.
Thank you. God Bless.

He was born April 20, 1931 in Queens, New York, a son of the late William Francis Mead and Harriet Agnes Walsh Mead. He attended Catholic elementary school in the Archdiocese of New York, and then attended Manhattan Prep High School.

Frank served in the United States Army during the Korean War, specializing in communications. After his honorable discharge, he enrolled in the RCA Institute for Radio and TV communications.

He loved his wife, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and his many friends, who will all miss him. He also loved painting with oils, cooking, gardening, and watching British mysteries. Frank had a talent for telling stories and making people laugh. He even wrote a book of memoirs of his life.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his uncles, Richard and Vincent Walsh; his aunt, Madeline Pretch; and his cousin, Bonnie Wendelken. Left to cherish his memories are his wife of 36 years, Judith Ann Mead; his children, Deborah Franzoy and husband, Alan, of New Mexico, Marilyn Slentz Mead of New York, Patriceann Mead of California, and Frank Mead and wife Sallyann of New Jersey; his 13 grandchildren, Caleb Franzoy and wife, Heather, Annie Smith and husband, Rob, Jessica Slentz, Ian Slentz, Sullivan Slentz and wife, Val, Omahr Mead, Kayla Mead, Jennifer Mead, Andrew Mead, Julianna Mead, Angela Frutchey and husband, Clint, Ariel Janko and husband, TJ, and Adam Rothman; his three great-grandchildren, Cadence Franzoy, Reagan Franzoy, and Liam Smith.

JNEWS: Duffy, Daniel [MC1961] runs for Hyde Park Board of Education


Hyde Park school board race features 4 candidates seeking 3 seats
Published: Sunday, May 19, 2013
Freeman staff

*** begin quote ***

HYDE PARK, N.Y. — Four candidates are vying for three seats on the Hyde Park Board of Education, including one incumbent and another who previously served on the board.

On the ballot are board member Daniel Duffy, newcomers Gary McGrath and Toby Rassin and former board member Kevin Sheehan.

Each of the three seats has a three-year term.

Duffy, 72, has been on the board for 12 years and is a retired design engineer who worked for IBM. He received a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering in 1961 from Manhattan College. Duffy and his wife, Janet, have eight grown children.

Duffy said his priorities for the district include maintaining programs for students through a sustainable budget. He said he supports groups that are trying to change the source of education funding because he does not believe property taxes are an equitable way of doing so.

Duffy said he has worked as a trustee to maintain a balanced budget that keeps programs while recognizing the issues related to closing a school and reducing staff due to declining enrollment.

Hi John,

I'd just like to invite my fellow Jaspers to mosey on over to my website, which has a lot of information about my current novel, Something Red; the novel's sequel, The Wicked; and four books of poetry.

Here's the link:

Leinster's old tricks enough to outwit inferiorStade, but familiar foes Ulster aren't as easily fooled
Blues must stay on even keel after cakewalk with Pro12 decider looming large, says Neil Francis

Neil Francis – 19 May 2013

*** begin quote ***

Atonement? Probably not. Yesterday's Heineken Cup was where Leinster wanted to be but as they bask in the post-coital glow of yet more silverware they can reflect on the notion that they are still one of the best sides in Europe capable of beating either of yesterday's contestants.

*** and ***

My old buddy Gary Halpin, formerly of Manhattan College RFC, Wanderers, London Irish, Harlequins, Leinster, Esher and now Brecon, is a fantastic after-dinner speaker. He uses the same stories time and again because he moves around the place so often that nobody has heard his old jokes time after time. Leinster just looked at some of their old jokes, knew that Stade would not have been able to look back that far in their video analysis and cut them to pieces with a sort of surgical precision that they won't get away with against Ulster because the men from the North know all their old moves and all their new moves.

Nazi Looted Art and Cocaine: When Museum Directors Take It, It Call the Cops

*** begin quote ***

The Rutgers Journal of Law and Religion, as part of their Nuremberg volume, just published my article:  Nazi Looted Art and Cocaine: When Museum Directors Take It, Call the Cops.  Check out Volume 14 here.

*** and ***

As such, Nazi looted art should be treated as a contraband substance, like cocaine, and should be returned to its true owners under the common law precept that no one can take good title from a thief.

*** and ***

The article arguest that it is time for prosecutors to act and that the National Stolen Property Act gives them a weapon to do so.  They have the weapons and evidence, only the political courage to confront powerful museums with the evidence is lacking.  The article argues that museums, colleges and individuals who use technical defenses to keep stolen property as the Toledo Museum of Fine Art, the Detroit Institute of the Arts, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the MoMA and the Guggenheim have done bring only disgrace upon themselves and don't clean title to the stolen goods.

*** and ***

The article further argues that this is not a victimless crime because the wealthy donors who have "donated" the stolen artworks to museums got a tax break for the "fair market value" of the artworks.

JOBIT: Bouchard, Richard J. [MC1950 RIP]


Dr. Richard J. Bouchard, cardiologist
He established cardiac catheterization laboratory at St. Agnes Hospital and had a lengthy career with the U.S. Public Health Service
By Frederick N. Rasmussen, The Baltimore Sun
5:47 p.m. EDT, May 21, 2013

Dr. Richard J. Bouchard, a retired cardiologist who played an instrumental role in the establishment of the cardiac catheterization laboratory at St. Agnes Hospital, died Saturday from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma at Stella Maris Hospice. The longtime Timonium resident was 89.

The son of a railroad conductor and a homemaker, Richard Joseph Bouchard was born and raised in Ogdenburg, N.Y., where he graduated in 1946 from St. Mary's High School.

"His main interest was heart catheterization, and he was very good at it. His patients loved him and he was an extremely honorable man," said Dr. Ronald H. Gillilan, a semiretired cardiologist and director of the cardiac rehabilitation program at St. Agnes Hospital.

"He also loved to teach and had very good clinical judgment. He was clinical all the way and did not like administrative duties. He was just a delight to work with," said Dr. Gillilan, a friend for nearly 40 years.

"Dick was probably the best teacher I ever had. He had the ability to take the most difficult topic and could make you understand it," said Dr. Stephen J. Plantholt, a cardiologist who works at Maryland Cardiovascular Specialists at St. Agnes Hospital.

"During the last 30 or 40 years, Dick taught thousands of physicians cardiology and how to examine the heart and use their deductive reasoning to arrive at a treatment," said Dr. Plantholt. "He did this without fanfare. He was devoted to his patients and teaching. Those were his two passions."

After earning his bachelor's degree from Manhattan College in 1950, Dr. Bouchard entered Yale University Medical School, where he earned his medical degree in 1954.

Dr. Bouchard completed an internship in internal medicine in 1955 at the University of California San Francisco General Hospital, and three years later, a residency in internal medicine at the U.S. Public Health Service Hospital, also in San Francisco.

From 1963 to 1964, he completed a fellowship in internal medicine at the University of Maryland Medical School.

He returned to the West Coast, where he completed a cardiology fellowship in 1970 with the internationally known cardiologist Dr. Eugene Braunwald at the University of California, San Diego.

Dr. Bouchard began his medical career in 1960 as assistant chief of medicine at the U.S. Public Health Service Hospital in New Orleans, and from 1963 to 1965 was an instructor in medicine at Tulane University.

He was deputy chief of medicine at the public health hospital in New Orleans from 1965 to 1969, and was associate chief of medicine from 1970 to 1971. That year, he was named assistant chief of the clinical investigations department at the old U.S. Public Health Services Marine Hospital in Wyman Park.

At the Wyman Park hospital, he established a heart laboratory and cardiac catheterization laboratory. When medical services ended at the hospital, he joined the staff at St. Agnes Hospital as associate chief of cardiology and established and served as director of the cardiac catheterization laboratory.

From 1989 until 2012, Dr. Bouchard served on the board of the St. Agnes Cardiac Diagnostic Center.

"He was known for his work at Wyman Park, and his opinions were accepted throughout the cardiac community," said Dr. Raymond D. Bahr, a retired St. Agnes cardiologist and longtime friend.

"We would do catheterizations in the morning and then we would sit down and go over the results and discuss how we were going to treat the patient," Dr. Bahr said. "He had common sense, was down-to-earth and easy to get along with. He was a very compassionate man. And when I had difficult cases, he was always willing to sit down and discuss them."

Dr. Plantholt described Dr. Bouchard as "laid-back."

"He was friendly, easy to talk to, but he wasn't a gregarious person. His door was always open and [he was] happy to help you," Dr. Plantholt said. "He wanted to make sure you understood the issues, so he was always available."

Dr. James H. Gault, a retired cardiologist, got to know Dr. Bouchard in the 1960s at the National Heart Institute in Bethesda.

"Dick was an excellent cardiologist, and he'll be remembered for being an exceptional human being and for his humanity," said Dr. Gault. "He was not only engaged with the patient but with all who worked with him. He was a very steadying influence."

Marie V. McGinn worked as a technician at St. Agnes for 32 years before retiring in 2011.

"Working with Dr. Bouchard was absolutely wonderful. He was caring, loving and always open to questions. He always had time for you," Ms. McGinn said. "He treated everyone equally and made you feel important and that your job was significant. He so enriched my life."

Dr. Bouchard was still coming to work, where he administered stress tests, until about six months ago, Dr. Gillilan said.

"Dick lived in a world of consequences and choices. He had no talent for indifference," said Dr. Gault. "His death is a great loss for us."

Dr. Bouchard was a fellow of the American College of Physicians and the American College of Cardiology. He was a member of the American Medical Association, the Commissioned Officers Association, the U.S. Public Health Service and the Maryland Heart Association.

Dr. Bouchard was a baseball fan and an avid runner. He ran three to five miles nearly every day at the Dulaney High School track. Until his heels gave out 20 years ago, he ran numerous 10K races.

"Once he couldn't run anymore, he rode a stationary bike religiously until just three weeks ago," said his son, Marc Richard Bouchard of Phoenix, in Baltimore County.

He also liked gardening, traveling and reading.

Dr. Bouchard was a communicant of Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ Roman Catholic Church, 20 E. Ridgely Road, Timonium, where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

In addition to his son, Dr. Bouchard is survived by his wife of 53 years, the former Cleone Peters; and two grandchildren.

JNEWS: Bernat, David [MC????] and Pinelli, Anthony [MC????] enable BYOB


Mendham Man Opens Wine Store with Delivery
Wine, craft beers, liquor and unique artisanal products will be available in the Morristown store.
By Kim Tran
May 22, 2013

*** begin quote ***

BYOB is the name of the game at several Morristown restaurants. In response to this, two locals are launching a new business at The Highlands at Morristown Station next to the incoming restaurant, The Godfather.

Cambridge Wines is the new business idea from co-owners Anthony Pinelli, originally from New York, and David Bernat, who is from Mendham.

After leasing the space in January, they plan to open at the end of June or early July. As for their grand opening, they plan to hold off and do a joint one with The Godfather.

They met at Manhattan College where Pinelli was studying Business Finance and Bernat was studying Business Management

“We were always in the restaurant business and we were always coming up with great ideas,” said Bernat.

“When I got out of school, I managed a restaurant in Morristown and realized it, and many other places, were BYOB,” said Pinelli. “People had to trek across town to get liquor and all those places were lottery ticket stores. We wanted to give them something more sophisticated and high end that was reasonably priced.”

They’re looking to carry wine, craft beers, liquor and focus on unique, artisanal products.”

They’re teaming up with local restaurants, which will carry Cambridge Wines’ menu.

“We just bought a vespa and we plan to cater to the BYOBs by delivering our items tableside, or you can call Cambridge ahead of time and have it there when you arrive at the restaurant,” said Pinelli, adding that they plan to do home deliveries as well.

ENDNOTE: IRS probe was part of the political use of the IRS against anything conservative


Donohue says IRS probe triggered by Catholics United

Donohue says IRS probe triggered by Catholics United
By Kevin J. Jones

*** begin quote ***

New York City, N.Y., May 18, 2013 / 06:02 am (CNA).- Bill Donohue of the Catholic League said he was “stunned” that the IRS investigated his organization in 2008, charging that the Democrat-leaning group Catholics United filed the complaint and used it to argue that CNN should drop him as a commentator.

“This was a fishing expedition meant to intimidate me and create a chilling effect on my freedom of speech,” Donohue said.

“I still couldn’t believe that a couple of weeks after the election, I was being asked to spend my entire Thanksgiving trying to defend the Catholic League about something which we’re not guilty of,” Donohue told CNA May 17.

“We don’t give money. We don’t do endorsements. I’m not a Republican. I’m not a Democrat,” he said. “Of course I address the issues. That’s what I’m supposed to do. That’s my freedom of speech.”

Donohue recounted the inquiry in a May 16 essay for Newsmax. He said that Catholics United’s lawyers sent a June 5, 2008 letter to Marsha Ramirez, the Internal Revenue Service’s Director of Exempt Organizations Examinations, and to Lois G. Lerner, director of the IRS’ Exempt Organizations Division. The letter asked the IRS to question the sources of the Catholic League’s new funding.

We shouldn't ever forget how terrible Gooferment is!

Only a short lifetime ago, it was "No Irish need apply".

Pro-life is unpopular. Gooferment Skrules have become the "factories" of the "Secular Progressive" reeducation camps. Earth Worship. All benefits flow from Nanny Government and Father State will keep you safe!
