Weekend reading on our website

We're featuring three articles on the homepage right now: "Missed Opportunities," in which the editors look at where the UN report on the Vatican's response to the sexual abuse crisis goes wrong; "Roth at Rest," William H. Pritchard's review of a new book about Philip Roth; and "No Ground for Stand Your Ground," E. J. Dionne Jr.'s call for the repeal of statutes that according to some data have actually led to an increase rather than a reduction in violence. Take some time this weekend to take a look.
