Pull up a chair in my domestic church and let's chat!

I have worn many labels (Not in any particular order): Catholic, Wife, Mom,Gramma, Doctor, Major, Soccer Mom, Military Wife, Professor, Fellow.

All of these filter my views of the world. I hope that like St. Monica, I can through prayer, words and example, lead my children and others to Faith.
"The important thing is that we do not let a single day go by in vain without putting it to good use for eternity"--Blessed Franz J├Ągerst├Ątter

Finally! Someone besides Fox News and bloggers are talking about the lack of true journalism when it comes to President Obama. WTOP Radio is the leading source of local news in the D.C. Metro area. Mark Plotkin of WTOP offered this commentary on the White House Press Corps:

I don't fault the President for trying to control the press. But I ask you, why does the press go along? There is not one moment of spontaneity. The questioners are tipped off, in advance, by the White House and they behave accordingly.

No. Not one questions about Iraq. Not one questions about Afghanistan, where American troops have had the worst month of fatalities in eight years. These guys, and women, are not journalists. They're enablers.

Update: I know it is just a coincidence that after WTOP published this commentary, their web site went down.

JUST a coincidence? You are too generous. And that writer is too correct.
