Magnus Carlsen is astonishing people in the Tata Steel Tournament.  He is losing.

Today in Round 6 (of 13), Jordan v. Magnus.  Magnus still needs a haircut, but today the bird’s nest is at least somewhat under control with the help of “product”.

Not having a good day.

    So beautiful and how nice to see Cardinal Burke! I’m not sure why but whenever I see Cardinal Burke I have such a feeling of affection for the man. Maybe its his grandfatherly demeanor or his gentle but strong manner. God bless and protect him! and I appreciate what he did with the dubia but wow I wish he would/could do more!

    I think the burning question this blog post leaves unanswered is: Who’s the mystery figure on the left in the opening frame of the Mass?

Think, proof read, preview BEFORE posting!
