The end of Weis

A year ago, Christopher Ruddy reported for us on the most pressing crisis in American Catholicism. I refer, of course, to the losing record of the Fighting Irish and Notre Dame's underperforming football coach, Charlie Weis. Now I see Weis has been dismissed, so there's one fewer thing for the bishops to worry about. No word yet on whether the order came directly from Rome, but I expect our operatives in South Bend will keep us informed.
