CARDINAL BURKE’S CONFIRMATION OF REMOVAL

“At the request of many readers,” BuzzFeed News has posted on its website a full transcript of its interview with Cardinal Raymond Burke, in which he confirms his removal from the Catholic church’s highest court.

BITZ & PIECES

Like Edwin Pepper Interiors moving upstairs while a national lighting company takes the ground floor in the Brentwood Blvd. bldg.
Like Rev. Charles Burton of Unity Fellowship Church in Godfrey, IL at a Ferguson protest last week has gone viral. He’s seen laying down on the pavement inside a mock chalk outline of a shooting victim. Burton is prez of United Congregations of Metro East.
Like brave souls with EMT experience can apply as screeners at JFK airport for $19 an hour to check Ebola virus patients via a govt. agency.
Like Gannett, owner of KSDK, offering training for “Newsroom of the future: How to perform well when interviewing for one of the new jobs.”
Like the Cardinals and the K.C. Royals not playing in the World Series, but the K.C. Gaelic Football club was beaten by the St. Louis Gaelic Athletic Club in Columbia, MO. (24-17) as reported by that city’s Columbia Daily Trib.
Like the Detroit bailout is being called “GM – Government Motors.”

FERGUSON & THE AMERICAN CITY

The Fire This Time: Ferguson, St. Louis & The Fate Of The American City” is the title of a lecture by history prof Colin Gordon skedded for Thursday at Mizzou.

CARDINAL DOLAN CRITICIZED

In yet another possible sign that Cardinal Timothy Dolan’s star is waning within the Catholic hierarchy, he’s criticized in the pages of his hometown’s archdiocesan newspaper this week. Patrick Kleaver of the Old Cathedral denounces the head of the New York archdiocese for his unwillingness to “cooperate” with Peoria Bishop Daniel Jenky in securing sainthood for Archbishop Fulton Sheen. Meanwhile, the St. Louis Review also notes that, in what may be the “first,” Archbishop Robert Carlson has “no public events scheduled this week.”

Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson told authorities that Michael Brown reached for the gun during a scuffle, The New York Times reports. Wilson said he was pinned in his vehicle and in fear of his life.

JEROME J.SCHLICHTER LAUDED

One of our town’s leading barristers, Jerome J. Schlichter, gets plaudits in The New York Times. One federal judge praised him for “acting as a private attorney general” in enforcing laws with companies and risking breath-taking amounts of time and money, while overcoming many obstacles for the benefit of retirees and employees.” Little wonder that Schlichter is less popular with companies involved in the 401(k) industry, which have spent large sums defending themselves from suits they’ve viewed as unfounded. Schlichter is a partner in the law shop of Schlichter, Bogard & Denton.
