Irish Catholics, Nancy Pelosi, and My Bellybutton

So I've read two things on LJ today that bugged me; one was about the report on sexual abuse in Irish catholic schools (, the other was on Nancy Pelosi (

Next questions: Why should I care, and what if anything should I do about them? Before I get to those, though, come questions of prioritization: With all the things claiming attention in my life, should I be giving brain-space to them at all?

Having y'all to talk to, I conclude No, and will shortly get back to cleaning the kitchen. I still have the two letters in the back of my mind, one to the lead Catholic official in Ireland, and the other to Nancy, but I hope to dissolve them in dishwasher detergent so they'll stop bugging me.
