News today is not factual and is full of gossip and inuendo.  Truth has gotten lost in the need to have a face and a voice on the air 24 hours a day.  The catholic church appointed a new pope and he seems to be doing a good job.  I am not catholic but I would be proud to know he was the leader of my church.  He is cleaning up his own house and not diverting attention to things outside the church.  He has purchased a used car, lives in modest quarters and is restructuring the finances of the church all quietly but deliberately.

Our leaders should take a lesson from this man and clean up our own house before we start dictating or interfering in other people's lives.  We have a lot to answer for and we need good leaders.  How will we get people to come forward and help to run the country if we spend our time taking pot shots at everything they say and do.

Let's get down to the business of taking care of the country and the world we live in instead of slowly but surely sending ourselves into destruction.
