How many people were hospitalized in Las Cruces today? How many young, innocent children died from the flu? How many parents lost their jobs because they were too sick to go to work?

I ask because I am at a complete loss to explain why it's news that one Catholic "leader" is ill. Why the unerring focus on detailing minor and pointless issues without reporting on just how insanely crime-ridden the Catholic church is? Why avoid the real issues and just tell us one man is sick?

Chickenmilk, eat chicken soup if you are ill from the heart. For some of us who are Catholic, this are important news to us. You on the other hand, you sound angry! Take a chill pill and don't be sick.
