“Once is a mistake; several times is a preference.”

Montgomery_Scott_enjoying_a_glass_of_Scotch

Aye, the haggis is in the fire now for sure.

Steve copies What’s Up With Francis-Church? because he’s a big copy-cat stealer.

What reasonable person could believe that Pope Francis feels any disdain for the way Scalfari represents his opinions in La Repubblica? Where is the evidence that having been burned before, he has made an effort not to be misrepresented again? Five interviews over two years. As someone wrote elsewhere today, “Once is a mistake; several times is a preference.”

There’s an old saying that bears repeating here: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

He says some other stuff. I spose it’s pretty good.

    The cream rises to the top under our system of guv’mint, don’t it?

    Or as George W. Bush rendered the saying, ‘Fool me once… shame on me….fool me twice…you don’t get fooled again’.

    It’s difficult to tell sometimes on websites but this, Steve copies What’s Up With Francis-Church?, is a link. 🙂

    Here’s the link: O.N.E.P.E.T.E.R.F.I.V.E.

    Can you type that?

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me a hundred times, I’m a neo-Catholic blogger!

    (With apologies to Joe Sobran (I think))

    Yeah, but still, not even a link?

    I stagger back and forth between closing my eyes to what’s going on, and wanting to know all of it, in all its upsetting horror. OnePeterFive is a way to get the news without the hair-tearing-out of some agencies. When one’s hair thins with age, one wants to keep every precious strand.
