Some how I missed this:
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Federal court records show that a Catholic priest charged with stealing nearly $151,000 from two small parishes to fund his gambling has negotiated a diversion agreement.
I haven’t pursued the matter, not really. On-line gambling has been closed down for a number of years. Local gambling houses exist, of course. For a while the World Poker Tour had regional events and the churches did have weekly poker events. Many or some of the relaxation of the State gambling laws were tightened back up as incidents like the above reared their ugly heads.
FNC is beating some of the election and terrorist attacks to dead (excuse the pun – if it was a pun). When they repeat the same story with different experts every thirty minutes one finds oneself yawning.
Like, even the Cooking Channel seems more appealing. Although those pre-teen cooks come up with some very resourceful stuff on Chopped. I’d hate to be a judge on that program, for sure. Kid the other day was cut after receiving kudo’s on taste, and presentation; seems the pork was ever so slightly overcooked – even though the grill marks were excellent.
The kids take it well, however. Better than some of the adults.
