Reader: Cain “reassessing” campaign, John Paul II’s Bible & walking stick untouched in fire, Casey challenger?

Welcome to the Lunchtime Reader, where we assemble important stories to keep your eyes on.

Herman Cain told his senior staff that he is “reassessing” whether to remain in the race.

Blessed Pope John Paul II’s Bible and walking stick were untouched from a devastating fire at Catholic retreat center. Consider that a sign.

Sen. Bob Casey, Jr., D-PA, the phony “pro-life” Catholic, might just get a strong challenger after all. State House Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi has been meeting with party leaders about a potential run. Huge news.

Federal prosecutors think you don’t have the right to free speech if you try to tell your fellow citizens about jury nullification. Unreal.

More Newtmentum. Newt rockets to 38% in South Carolina poll. A new national poll puts him at 33%.

Catholic writer Mark Shea praises libertarian Steven Greenhut for calling out Christian conservatives who support using tear gas on American protesters.

Barney Frank, D-Mass., announces he will be retiring from Congress. Frank was a central figure in the Fannie Mae housing bubble and crash. But he would have won reelection had he run.

And from the technology magazine Wired: “The 5 Best Toys of All Time.”

    You make a striking statement about Barney Frank being a “central figure” in the housing bubble and collapse, but the article you link to says nothing of the sort. I decided to research your statement, and found it to be completely false. Barney Frank’s only connection to Freddie Mac and the housing bubble is that he supported some affordable housing initiatives. It seems that Newt Gingrich is much more connected to the housing bubble and collapse as he was a paid consultant of these companies advising them how to skirt regulation and manipulate the political process for their own benefit. The statement against Barney Frank appears to be little more than a personal, politically motivated smear attack.
