They may have been entertaining in person...

...But the Rolling Stones' Super Bowl halftime show on television was a snooze-fest. Maybe ABC shouldn't have censored them, but I don't think that would have helped.

This halftime show should have showcased some of the great musicians who have come out of Detroit: Eminem, the White Stripes, and Motown (I know they did that a few years ago) to name a few. Instead we have aging hipster has-beens giving us this dreck.

On another note, although I am a fan of Aaron Neville's music, his rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" was one of the most hiddeous I have ever heard. It's a good thing Dr. John and Aretha Franklin were there to maintain some semblance of listenable music.

Gay priests?

All the recent talk about the Catholic church allowing or barring homosexual men from serving as priests seems to gloss over one key point.

How do you tell the difference between a heterosexual and a homosexual priest?

This is the beginning of a great joke, but I am not going to share it here, because it also raises a valid point. If all priests take and (in theory) adhere to a vow of celibacy, what is the big deal? The question that follows is whether people are judged by their actions or their thoughts. I suspect that most all men have have fantasized about sex. Other people do not have access to our thoughts; the only realistic way humans can judge other humans is by their actions. So let me phrase my question another way:

If someone is celibate (as Catholic priests are expected to be), how do you know their sexual orientation, and does it matter?
