With apologies to Irving King, allow me to offer an eschatologically sensitive revision to his classic, "Show Me the Way to Go Home":
Show me the way to be saved! I'm lost and I want to be whole, Oh, I sinned more than once in the course of my life, and it went right to my soul! Wherever I may stray From God's begotten Way, You will always hear me singing this song: Show me the way to be saved!

How do we compensate for the irresponsible? The law says let them have their way to avoid public inconvenience. The saints have a different way. According to a reflection on the life of Mother Teresa at CatholicCulture.org, entitled "Adoption Is 'A Concrete Way of Love'" the answer is to become super responsible: pick up the precious burdens that others drop and care for them.

CNS News reported (6:47 P.M.) that the Congress just weighed in on the Fields vs. Palmdale case. See House Urges Ninth Circuit to Rehear Sex Survey Case -- 11/16/2005. By a 320 to 91 margin (with 22 abstaining or absent) the House resolved that the 9th Circuit should rehear the case "en blanc", i.e., with all 47 judges.

Shortly after I posted the comment on control freaks, I spotted this item on the CNN web site: "Otters winning battle of wits" Although I'm inclined to quibble over their characterization (I think it's simply a question of the government scientists in the Fish and Wildlife Service underestimating the resourcefulness of otters.) I can certainly chuckle along with them (CNN, that is, though the otters themselves may also be chuckling.)
