COLLEGE // As many as 1 in 3 college graduates have a job historically performed by those with a high school diploma or the equivalent. One economist noted that we have 115,000 janitors, 16,000 parking lot attendants, 83,000 bartenders, and about 35,000 taxi drivers with bachelor’s degrees in 2012. Is college worth it for everyone? http://cvote.it/2vLVpJu

  1. One would think a Catholic website would offer an analysis of how the court ruling on HFC gases fits our understating of Laudato So. Instead, the “Catholic” approach is apparently to post conservative articles and quote a man who denies global warming, who was paid by the oil companies to claim global warming is false when Exxon’s own scientists said otherwise, who opposes the Clean Power Plan, opposes energy conservation (!), opposes the Endangered Species Act and who says tobacco should be unregulated.
    It’s as if Pope Francis, and all the encyclicals before him warning of a market with no regulation, doesn’t even exist!
