It seems Katie Couric, the respected quarterback of the CBS Evening news reads my Blog.
Maureen Dowd, the Washington D.C. based columnist for the New York Times must also start her day checking on my latest rantings. Did I mention she won a Pulitzer Prize?
I know these facts to be true because a few days ago I wrote about the endless accusations against many priests, from many countries, in the Catholic Church, and voiced my concern that nobody seems to really care.
I stand corrected.
The very next day, a story of this scandal appeared on the CBS Evening News.
The day after that, The Philadelphia Inquirer ran a similar story. Granted, it was buried on page 18, but at least that was something.
Yesterday, Maureen Dowd wrote a column in the New York Times, basically echoing my thoughts on this disturbing subject.
Did I mention she has won a Pulitzer Prize.
I'd like to thank all 3 news reporters mentioned above for following my blog.
I would like to think that someday, they will throw this blog a mention, in their stories, since they seem to get a lot of their ideas from reading Marks Rants and Raves.
Just a side note to my niece, whose name I won't mention because she has an aversion to all things Internet but her name rhymes with TABBY, who graciously mentioned to me early in my blog career when I had 5 followers, "Uncle Mark, if you would work on your spelling and grammar you might find yourself with more than 5 followers."
To that I say, thank you to the people from 35 different countries who have visited my blog 2,512 times, and of course, special thanks to the Philadelphia Inquire, world renown Katie Couric, and the Pulitzer Prize winning Maureen Dowd for FOLLOWING.
