CS Commentary: Pope Francis’s actions regarding sex abuse have the distinct flavor of being ‘political’ and timed to make it appear as though the Catholic Church is dealing with the problem – at least to those not paying attention.

CS Commentary: Press under pressure not to report tourist killings in Mexico. Duh. Like we’ve said all along – think twice before you vacation or invest in Mexico.
