Fresh starts

By Diogenes (articles - email) | Jun 30, 2005

The president of the US bishops' conference has lots of advice for President Bush as he prepares for the G8 summit next week.

But Bishop Skylstad also has some kind words for the White House: “We commend you for the recent agreement for poor country debt cancellation that should provide the kind of fresh start for many poor countries that our Conference has long advocated.”

It's not clear what expertise Bishop Skylstad has on international trade, climate change, or arms traffic, but he does have some inside information on debt relief. As you will recall, his Spokane diocese is now in bankruptcy court.

Richard Cross holds a doctorate in psychology, who has taught at the university level, including at Franciscan University. He is currently an educational researcher and consultant in the field of psychology and related disciplines.
