No one knows. After Wally and Beaver left home, no one ever heard from Ward or her again.

Happy New Fiscal Year: I waited until now to resume blogging as I was hoping I could get a computer that was built during this millennium. Maybe next year. I sure hope Floppy Disks ‘R’ Us is still in business at that time.

Scrambled: When I learned the Milwaukee Art Museum accepted a donation of “Eggs Benedict” — the “portrait” of Pope Benedict XVI made of 17,000 condoms — I concluded that every Catholic needs a large dose of Howard Beale, the character in the movie, “Network,” who got people screaming, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!”

Until Catholics become Beale-like, this pummeling of us and our beliefs will continue, and we’ll remain society’s doormats. What’s it going to take to end it?

Not so supreme: As disappointing as the Supreme Court’s ruling on gay “marriage” is, even more disappointing is that two nominal Catholics — Justices Anthony Kennedy and Sonia Sotomayor — voted with the majority.

Unfortunately, all the Bealism in the world can’t remedy their disregard for the faith. Worse, their votes made Catholics even more inviting doormats.

Value it: Offer a prayer of thanksgiving this Friday and Saturday for the religious liberty we still have. And the next time someone or some entity gnaws at it, invoke the words of Howard Beale.
