The buggery box score in L.A.

Diogenes offers a delicious summary of the state of legal play in the sex-abuse saga in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. It all becomes clear now. The über-rule for Cardinal Mahoney is the one all too familar to working Americans: "CTA," as in "cover thy ass." In this case, what's covered is the collective posterior of senior diocesan officials. In the upcoming trials, those not so senior will just have to twist in the wind.

In the long term, the cost of all this will be immeasurable in money, which itself is in the many, many millions. Kyrie, eleison.
