Stories that caught my eye this morning:
-- The Philadelphia archbishop, Cardinal Justin Rigali, resigned Tuesday in the face of accusations that the archdiocese covered up sexual depredations by its priests. The church said the cardinal retired for reasons of age.
-- Mortgage industry employees are still signing documents they haven't read -- the same shenanigans that led to the mortgage melt down. Again, as elsewhere, the nation confronts the problem of people caught with their hand in the cookie jar ... who apologized, promised to be good, and then went back to stealing cookies.
-- Borders book chain is preparing to slip, Titanic-like, beneath the waves of economic hard times and a public that reads less and less.
-- On Tuesday, the voters of Wisconsin will have their say in the recall of a state senator who is closely linked to the governor's successful gutting of collective bargaining rights.
In a hundred years, who'll know?
