Rule #1 

After dropping off YW at daycare (no school this week, it's Spring Break; we're going to go visit the snow on Thursday) I turned the radio to NPR and heard a story about a lawsuit filed by a couple of brothers against the Catholic Diocese across the Bay in Oakland. They, it turns out, were molested by a certain priest who was shuttled from parish to parish when people would begin to get upset about their kids being abused. The last part I heard before I got out of the car was that the Church officials thought they shouldn't get any punitive damages because the Church had admitted they screwed up and now had written guidelines governing the interaction between clergy and children. I'm hoping Rule #1 of the guidelines is: Don't fuck them.
