We do not want to dwell on the painful loss suffered by the Georgetown Hoyas yesterday evening, as the snow swirled around McDonough Arena.
And most of us men on the Eastern Seaboard need something to take our minds off our sore snow-shoveling backs.

Of all the wholesome amusements ever made available to mankind, the crossword puzzle is certainly the best.
Thank you for the wonderful early Christmas present, o merciful God!
…Also, our dearly beloved late Holy Father is now the Venerable Pope John Paul II! As is the Venerable Pope Pius XII.
