Collective Bargaining, Republicans and the American Bishops

Katie left an interesting question in the comment box of a different topic. I hope she doesn't mind that I open a new topic using her words.

"Not to change the topic; but what are U.S. Bishops doing regarding the assault on the working class by politicians? Should Republicans be given a free-pass to allow middle income workers to be stripped of collective bargaining in an economy that is already squeezing out the middle class? Just because the Republican Party pays lip service and throws an occasional bone to prolife causes, the U.S. bishops should still have enough zeal on economic justice and policy no matter how prolife the politicians assaulting the middle class are! "

Any comments?

No TLM at the Shrine?

So what's the real deal as to why the TLM scheduled for the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in April was cancelled? I have some traddie friends who are sorely disappointed.

Protocol for obtaining Shrine's permission not followed? Thumbs down by the Archdiocese of Washington? Celebrant bowed out... why?
