Firstly, I want to thank Nick Welch, The Independent and KEYT for running the local aspects of the Bishop Curry story.They, unlike other local news organizations did their jobs.
Here we have the master architect of a plan that allowed Cardinal Mahoney and the LA Archdiocese to keep Catholic priests that had and in some cases continued to rape children, as far away from the police and the courts as possible. Anything to protect the church!
Bishop Curry is still in charge of Santa Barbara area Catholic churches and their schools. Were I a parent with a child in the church or one of its schools, I would be uneasy with Curry still in charge. Who is with my child today?
This is the same man who oversaw the destruction of the convent on Nopal Street and the displacement of long-serving and loved nuns who lived there. The nuns and the public were lied to in this case.
Bishop Curry should be shunned. Every time he walks into a church service, the congregation should walk out!

I would like to thank all the good people that have emailed and phoned me, including Barney, and for the posted comments on this subject for their kind words and support.
Both the Teamsters Union and the News-Press have the right to contest each other both in court and in the arena of public opinion.
Printing an op-ed piece by Norman Jaffe, equating the Teamsters Union with the Nazis is an injustice to the millions of Jews and non-Jews murdered by the Germans under Nazi rule and an insult to all Americans, especially those who fought and died fighting Hitler'sperversion.
It would show good faith by the News-Press if the paper would print letters with opposing views on its ongoing battle with the Teamsters Union.
In fact, it would be a great surprise to me to see the News-Press print more letters opposed to its positions on any subject.
Article 1 of the Constitution is alive and well, but it seems to be on life support at the News-Press.
