Stuff I've been reading

First, something very close to home: Former Nova Scotia bishop Raymond Lahey stripped of clerical duties over child porn conviction. Apparently this is "one of the most serious penalties that the Roman Catholic Church can impose". What's a guy gotta do to get excommunicated, these days? Lousy Canuck has more.

From The Globe and Mail: 2012 vs. 1984: Young adults really do have it harder today. In response, A 29-year-old on the difficulties of landing a first job.

Across the pond, a couple of posts about the austerity measures in Ireland, and the Fiscal Compact treaty: Burning Our Future To Fuel The Past, Rabbit Of Government Versus Truck Of Euro, and  So Where Do We Get The Money?

Finally, 30 days' worth of grilled cheese sandwich recipes. I recommend exercising caution before clicking on that last link. Make sure you have plenty of bread and cheese handy, first, because it might make you hungry.

I plan on writing more about possible EI changes later this week, as well as something on the student protests in Qu├ębec. Anyone got suggestions for other things I should write about?
