Kavanaugh Accuser Classmate: I changed my mind, forget what I said

Easy peasey, girl. We all make mistakes.

A former classmate of Christine Blasey Ford tells NPR that she does not know if an alleged sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh took place as she first suggested on social media.

“That it happened or not, I have no idea,” Cristina King Miranda told NPR’s Nina Totenberg. “I can’t say that it did or didn’t.”

That’s different from what Miranda wrote Wednesday in a now-deleted Facebook post that stated definitively, “The incident DID happen, many of us heard about it in school.”

In other words, she got caught up in the moment. A resister who did not think twice.

It’s like the old laugh line: Next time, THIMK!

Bishop Goedert ‘did what he could’ to rid archdiocese of abuser priests | Chicago Sun-Times

Ringing defense by one who was there, closing with:

Is Goedert an unsung hero? That is hard to say. But he did not flee the arena. He stayed and did what he could. If that falls short of your latter-day moral standard, he will have to live with that.

But the public record should be fair. Rev. Raymond Goedert was a major player in a quiet effort that substantially cleaned up the Archdiocese of Chicago before the public was even aware of the problem. That should be his legacy, not an editorial calculated to humiliate him and, so meanly, to roust an elderly priest out of the cardinal’s house.

Long and detailed account.
