It was, indubitably, a dastardly crime and one fully understands the cardinals sorrow, anger and frustration.
But, he is also a prelate, a Cardinal to boot.
I doubt whether even loose-lipped, loose-cannon Pope Francis would have blurted out ‘mercilessly’. He, actually, is BIG on mercy. Kind of a trademark. See below.
Pope Francis on MERCY.

What it says about ‘UltraTrac’ in the
Fenix 5 Plus Owner’s Manual.

There is NO mention in the Owner’s Manual about pre-calibrating or that it is designed for longer than marathon distances.
I triple checked.
Plus, I have used GPS on this ‘course’ at least 100 times!
The problem, as I see it, is the same as that with open water swimming. The gyro dead reckoning is dead wrong.
Here is my response to Garmin.
Media Speculation As To Whether The Shameful Sri Lanka Bombing Could Have Been Stopped — PLEASE Forgive Me For Smiling.
I know that this is NOT a smiling matter, BUT PLEASE forgive me for doing so.
IF ONLY you knew of the machiavellian machinations of Sri Lanka politics and how devious, corrupt and unscrupulous they can be.
Sri Lanka politics is like the proverbial iceberg. You only see the TIP of it. 90% is cloak-and-dagger.
There is always more to Sri Lanka politics than outsiders will EVER be able to discern or dissect.
So, if you haven’t already read it, PLEASE read my first post on this subject. There is MORE to this than we will EVER KNOW. Do not jump to conclusions.
So, this is the MAIN Intelligence document — that was NOT acted upon.
Lots of OLD fashioned date stamps and endorsements by pen.
Just like the documents and files my father, a civil servant, dealt with 50-years ago!
This is how things get delayed, not acted upon.
The red tape of the Sri Lankan government can choke an elephant.
Sri Lanka, Alas, Got Its 15-Minutes Of Media Fame In The U.S. Today — 1st Time Many Would Have Heard The Name.
Not so with the Easter 2019 atrocity. Sri Lanka on its own. TV news started with the Sri Lanka story. This was BIG.
I can assure you that this would have been the first time millions of Americans ever heard of ‘Sri Lanka’. I know that they don’t know.. I live with it every day.
As of now some will remember — alas with the ‘terrorist’ connotation.
Well, I guess we can’t have it all.
Prior instances when it was on April 22 (non-leap years)
and April 21 (leap years).
I take LEAP YEARS into account.
I count days from January 1, taking into account leap years.
So, April 21 & April 22 are 111-days in From Jan. 1
depending on whether it was Leap Year or not.
Prevailing consensus is that it most likely will be April 22 in 2019. But, there could always be a pesky little floe floating around that could delay it by 12-, 24-, 36 or even 48-hours.
I am just going with the flow.

My Bill for Knee Surgery.
Click to ENLARGE and STUDY.
There was no pain to talk about
— throughout, from surgery to now.
Knee replacement, of course, is a much more involved procedure with expensive hardware involved. In my case they only had to insert 3 small ‘fiber’ plugs. So, there was no hardware costs. But, it just goes to show.
Yes, I know of doctors that will NOT accept Medicare patients just for this reason. The lower reimbursement. Not sure whether this applies to surgeons, especially orthopedic surgeons. They must get most of their business from old codgers like I who need knee and hip replacement — though I was, of course, different.
That huge 100% price differential is NOT RIGHT. It is worse if you don’t have insurance. Hospitals really rape you. I know. Dartmouth-Hitchcock raped me — anally at that.
There has to be a middle-path. Between the Medicare amount and what other insurances pay.
This is why the U.S. healthcare system is so screwed up.
I am sure glad I have Medicare — with the Humana Advantage overlay on top of it (which costs me NOTHING).
