A didactic not necessarily Hegelian

Res Ipsa Loquitor
Reform, on the other hand, corrects and expands the status quo rather than destroying and starting anew. The Catholic understanding has always, therefore been one of constant reform and renewal, not one of revolution. Catholic reform is built not on a Hegelian premise of thesis, antithesis and synthesis, but on a hermeneutic of continuity. We do not destroy the old to start again. We correct the old, modify the status quo and expand and develop our understanding of the faith and the work of the church. To use a gardening analogy, the Catholic prunes the vine, fertilizes the soil and weeds the vineyard. The revolutionary grubs up the whole place with a bulldozer and tries to plant a flower bed.

My apology for subjecting you to even a hint of religious preachery or proselytism.  Truth is,  I stumbled upon this [Francis: Reformer or Revolutionary?] for reasons I forgot, but thought it a fine treatise with application outside of the church.  Like the United States. 

We find ourselves at a decision point.  Do we "fertilize the soil and weed the vineyard" in the  Jeffersonian sense?  Thomas Jefferson's mandate here can encompass a hermeneutic of continuity, and Hegelian dialectic. 

Sorry. I have no idea what this is about.  Maybe you will.

Napolitano Under Cloud of Suspicion

Res Ipsa Loquitor

In practice, high ranking Democrats are allowed to avoid indictment for felony crime by resigning from office (i.e. Tony Coelho, Jim Wright, Robert Torricelli, William H. Gray).  Is Janet Napolitano another who will escape the hoosegow by brokering that deal?  Consider.

The timing of her resignation is highly unusual for a member of the president’s cabinet. Most cabinet members who leave after a president’s first term don’t wait an extra six months into the second term. Many believe she abruptly left DHS because of some sordid dealings that are about to be discovered. Her tenure at DHS has been characterized by back-to-back lawsuits and multiple controversies regarding the agencies DHS oversees, which include the TSA, ICE, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services and FEMA. [

Here's something I didn't know about Napolitano.  Something that would have established her pedigree for me from the get-go.  Something that shows her for the political dick-likker  she is.

Napolitano was tapped by former President Bill Clinton for U.S. attorney after she came to public prominence as an attorney representing Anita Hill against Clarence Thomas at his judicial confirmation hearings, where Hill accused the married Thomas of sexually harassing her. In his book, The Real Anita Hill, David Brock documented how Napolitano put a witness on the stand who wasn’t corroborating Hill’s version of the facts, so Napolitano took her off the stand and had her return and claim amnesia.
