That's what the NY Times says about Marquette coach Buzz Williams. The paper's profile of the head man of the Golden Eagles portrays him as geeky, strange, peculiar, and consumed.
It's an interesting piece.
"Americans, including many Catholics, elected a gifted man to fix an economic crisis. That’s the mandate. They gave nobody a mandate to retool American culture on the issues of marriage and the family, sexuality, bioethics, religion in public life and abortion. That retooling could easily happen, and it clearly will happen -- but only if Catholics and other religious believers allow it."
Those comments about President Obama are from Denver Archbishop Charles Chaput, who also says, "Whatever his strengths, there’s no way to reinvent his record on abortion and related issues with rosy marketing about unity, hope and change........We can’t claim to be ‘Catholic’ and ‘pro-choice’ at the same time without owning the responsibility for where the choice leads – to a dead unborn child."
Chaput has issued a warning that worshipping Obama needs to be put in check. That means you hypocritical Catholics who voted for the guy.
UPDATE from the Denver Post
Advocates of government over-regulation, government trampling on property rights, government intruding into private businesses, government banning the use of a legal product, and government killing jobs will gather at noon Thursday at the Brown County Courthouse in Green Bay. They will demand a statewide smoking ban.
If they're successful, they won't stop there. Can't smoke in your own business? How about not being able to smoke in your own car?
Ultimately, these opponents of freedoms won't rest until you can't smoke in your very own home.
HT: Ban the ban Wisconsin
You've got the ugly weather...about an inch of rain is in the forecast. Maybe some snow, depending on where you are.
The president unveils his budget. Bye bye wallet.
And you've got bad news coming from everywhere in new reports:
Weekly jobless claims
January numbers for durable goods
January numbers for new-home sales
General Motors reports its quarterly earnings
JIm Doyle announces he's learned about a whole new bunch of tax increases while in Spain.
OK, that last one probably won't happen. We think it won't. Maybe not. It shouldn't. Well, knowing Doyle, it could.
