Quote: “Soviet Adm. Sergei Gorchakov reportedly held the view that the U.S. had made a strategic miscalculation by relying on large and increasingly vulnerable aircraft carriers. The influential U.S. Adm. Hyman Rickover shared this view. In a 1982 congressional hearing, legislators asked him how long American carriers would survive in an actual war…Rickover’s response? “Forty-eight hours,” he said.”

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. In truth, his actions have been weak and dismal throughout recent charges, as articles highlighted in our Archives and the Common Sense Interpretation page show.

True Detective’s Season 3 Finale Starts With A Bluff Then Tells A New Story, Emily L. Stephens, TV.Avclub

CS Commentary: This writer is much more generous with the season and the finale than we would be – most of the season a jumbled, juggling mess between three time periods with too-long dialogue, exasperating editing, and a let-down of an ending. Barely watchable and the least interesting of the three seasons.

‘Whiskey Cavalier’ Is A Cutesy Over-The-Top Clone Of ‘Castle’ And ‘Bones,’ Kelly Lawler, USA Today

CS Commentary: Critics saw the first two episodes and seem underwhelmed, but they are, well, critics. We’ve only seen the first episode but it was funnier than anything we’ve seen in some time. The trick will be sustaining that comedy over a season which seems like it will be a very difficult challenge. But the show works a way lot better than the trailer indicated.

Believe it or not, you are lucky to feel the pain if you approach it correctly, because it will signal that you need to find solutions and to progress.” – Ray Dalio
