At Politico, former Speaker of the House tells us what he really thinks of Sen. Ted Cruz. I was not sure Boehner deserved his share of the Laetare award, but now he definitely has earned it. I love the fact that he said he would vote for Trump, but not Cruz. 

Cardinal Donald Wuerl on the pastoral implications of Amoris Laetitia. How refreshing to read a bishop who does not minimize or relativize the text!

Jim Tankersley, in the Washington Post, on how Ted Cruz's selection of Carly Fiorina illustrates why none of the GOP contenders could catch up with Donald Trump. Me? I have not been able to stop laughing since the announcement was made. The rollout was just like previous Veep selection rollouts except for one thing: Cruz has almost no shot at winning the nomination! And that made the whole thing enormously weird and laughable.
