How is a rough body search at an airport security gate like a panel discussion at a Catholic college?

    I think "gentlmen" can and should also let people know that they are embarrassing the Angels...

    Peggy is too much of lady to indict many of the American bishops who insist upon "Talking About Touching" with our children. They too are "embarrassing the angels."

    Strange that she identified the host of the panel discussion as a Catholic college. Otherwise I'd be sure she was referring to her appearance last week at Boston College.

    It is people of the same gender going after your private ...er... business.
