President Obama's planned commencement address today at Notre Dame has re-opened wounds still festering since last November's presidential elections. There, the Catholic Church split in half (that is, with 70% of registered Catholics voting, 45% chose McCain, 54% voted for Obama.)

It all started when John Grogran first got the idea to publish his tales about life with a young Labrador that instantly captured the heart of America. And for those of us who grew up with a lab in our house, the pages that Grogan filled in that book became almost a verbatim recount of the things encountered with the wiry but outrageously loyal animals. But there was a darker tinge in that story – something that lies just beneath the surface in just about everything that we do and more often than not we try to avoid.
Shortly after I turned 18 I got my first two credit cards from Mervyn's and Chevron.

Drinking water can kill you.
It's time once again for Pomp and Circumstance.
