Pennsylvania Catholic child sex abuse report
Reading the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report on sex abuse in state Catholic Dioceses. Have made it through ½ of 1% so far but one thing that stands out is how the 2002 Boston Globe story on child sex abuse served as a catalyst for both victims coming forward as well as abusers putting in requests to retire shortly thereafter in Pennsylvania.
The Boston story is well told in the film "Spotlight" from 2015.

Like Mr. Stewart, I too have been watching Star Trek: TNG quite a bit lately.
Not only did the show change people's lives, it amplified & accelerated world changes, many of which were had started with the Original Series.
I prefer the (mostly) positive vision of Gene Roddenberry. I've been less interested in DS9, Voyager, & subsequent prequels (although I have watched a good number of Voyager eps).
Gene's passing in 1991 happened at an important point along my timeline.
lol Cool ... I've actually been using the same version of Winamp for most of my music since October 2001. It's not about "nostalgia" for me, it's just what I use. Simple, compact, and full of little features.

Over 2.1M$ has been raised in less than 24 hours for the #HumboldtBroncos hockey team after their tragic bus collision last night.
The outpouring of support has been tremendous.
"Oh no, I know Hamlet. And what he might say with irony I say with conviction. 'What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculty. In form, in moving, how express and admirable. In action, how like an angel. In apprehension, how like a god!' "

I supported Corey Feldman's TRUTH Campaign to help bring #Hollywood pedophiles and sexual harassers into the light.
In the wake of the #HarveyWeinstein disclosures, now is the time to keep the ball rolling.
Will you support him as well?
