when good news is bad news

By Diogenes (articles - email) | Feb 23, 2006

Not everyone in Boston was happy when Pope Benedict announced that Archbishop O'Malley would become a cardinal.

Still it's remarkable that, on the very day of the happy announcement, a prominent civic leader in Boston would say, for the record, that he was "uncomfortable" with this honor for the archbishop, in fact "very saddened by the appointment."

Who would make such a gratuitously nasty comment? Some anti-Catholic bigot? A longtime enemy of the archbishop? A bitter critic of the Pope? No, it was Sean O'Malley.
