From the Catholic Labor Network, good news that the Loyola University of Chicago is establishing a task force on just employment. After some problems in the past, it is good to see the school's new president, Jo Ann Mulloy, stepping up to the plate and recognizing that part of a Catholic university's Catholic identity is treating its workers in a manner that coheres with Catholic social doctrine.

In the era of fake news, it is always worthwhile to ask oneself if what you are hearing corresponds to reality. So, for example, if President Trump tweets "the moon is made of cheese" we should ask ourselves if it is a plausible claim. Not included in that "we" would be those who work for Breitbart News, especially disgraced former clerics who work for Breitbart News.

In the Washington Post, a good comparison of the House GOP health care bill and the Affordable Care Act. It may be too soon to offer a prediction about how this will all play out, but it is more than curious that the rural hospitals already having a hard time keeping their doors open are likely to find that task even harder under the GOP dispensation. I wonder where all those Trump voters will go when they need health care?
