unimpressed

The National Review Online has an opinion piece on Cardinal Mahony for which the author ID should be enticement enough:

Jack Dunphy is an officer in the Los Angeles Police Department. "Jack Dunphy" is the author's nom de cyber. The opinions expressed are his own and almost certainly do not reflect those of the LAPD management.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    "Cardinal Mahony surely has an obligation to guard the spiritual welfare of the priests serving in his archdiocese, but shouldn't he subordinate this obligation to the truth? " This pre-supposes two things: 1) Cardinal Mahoney really cares about the priests in his care, and 2) he still knows the difference between right and wrong, Truth and fiction.

    Jack Dunphy has been a PseudoD favorite (and, may I say, inspiration for my pseudonymous ramblings) ever since he first appeared on NRO. A beat cop who gets back at the blow-dried mediocrities in the Chief's office by writing about how things are on the ground. To anyone trapped in a large bureaucracy, and looking for a creative way to expose corruption, Jack Dunphy is required reading.
