Governor Eliot Spitzer (aka Client 9) has been caught in a prostitution sting:

"The meeting apparently lasted from 9:36 p.m. ET, when Kristen arrived, until 12:02 a.m.
Kristen collected $4,300 from Client 9, according to the FBI affidavit."

You have to feel for his wife and 3 teenage daughters, and prayers for the entire family would be appropriate. The very pro-choice governor might want to consider some other ways to spend 2.5 hours and $4,300.

Spitzer could have:

Donated $1,400 to Birthright
Donated $1,400 to Momma's House
Donated $1,500 to Life Center of Long Island

Plus he could have spent 1 hour volunteering at Momma's House in Jericho perhaps doing some work around the house, and then another 1 hour and a half at the Life Center of Long Island doing various things to help women in need.
Long Islander quote of the year:

"I have a general disgust for Catholic architecture since the 1950s,” he said recently."

-Brother Gary Creegan, Principal of St. Anthony's High School

This quote comes to you via this NY Times article regarding St. Anthony's new chapel that is being built. I found this via New Liturgical Movement. There are many of us that share Brother's digust. I am glad to see this chapel being built and hope this serves as an example for many other schools and parishes.

Can anybody tell me what the deal is with the drawing? It appears to be a Last Supper-like depiction, but with all girls? It is strange to me - especially because it is a First Holy Communion Remembrance certificate from 1933!
More info: This Remembrance certificate is by the Edward O'Toole Co. in NY which was a successful Catholic goods business. There is now a Theresa & Edward O’Toole Foundation that was apparently started with this company's profits.
UPDATE: This is not a photo as I first wrote, but a drawing.
