It sounds right
Twelve hours have passed since I first heard the report that Bishop O'Malley would be appointed to Boston, and there still hasn't been a single denial-- not even a pro forma statement saying that the report is speculative. And John Allen, the original source of this story, has a very high batting average.
So my strong suspicion is that it's true. We'll likely know in another 12 hours (that is, Tuesday morning).
And if it is true, it's a brilliant appointment. Check out the news stories tonight and tomorrow morning, and notice how many different people-- from completely different perspectives-- have a high regard for Bishop O'Malley. There's a simple power to the man's personality; he'll have an immediate impact in Boston.
