Page14 POST-GAZETTE, JULY 15, 2011 LO SAPEVATE CHE ... Papa Benedetto XVI ha recentemente espresso il suo punto di vista in un discorso che ha preceduto "La Giornata Mondiale del Malato" (11 febbraio). Lui e' stato molto chiaro dicendo, fra l'altro, che occorre investire piu' energie in strutture sanitarie che siano d'aiuto, e sostegno, ai sofferenti, soprattutto ai piu' poveri e bisognosi. Poi ha detto che "una societa' che non riesce ad accettare i sofferenti - riferendosi all'enciclica Spe Salvi - e' una societa' crudele e disumana. Se ogni uomo e' nostro fratello tanto piu' il debole, il sofferente ed il bisognoso di cura, devono essere al centro della nostra attenzione perche' nessuno di loro si senta dimenticato o emarginato. Ha pure aggiunto che 'la misura dell'umanita' si determina essenzialmente nel rapporto con" la sofferenza e col sofferente. Questo vale per il singolo e per la societa'. Ha espresso poi la speranza che le autorita' si prodighino a far si che maggiori investimenti siano fatti helle strutture sanitarie, specialmente a favore dei malati piu' poveri e bisognosi. I1 suo discorso e' stato pronunciato mentre imperversava una forte polemica sull'eutanasia, che fu oggetto di dibattito in TV presentato su RAI Tre in uno spot dei radicali. Questi stanno tentando ogni stratagemma per favorire la legalizzazione dell'eutanasia, come ha spiegato sul quotidiano dei Vescovi, Assuntina Morresi, professore as- sociate di Chimica fisica all'Universita' di Perugia, e mem- bra del Comitato nazionale di bioetica. DID YOU KNOW THAT ... Pope Benedict XVI recently made known his view in a speech that pre-dated "The World Day of the Sick". He was quite adamant by saying, inter alias, that it is imperative to invest more energies "into health facilities that are help- ful, and supportive, to the sufferers, above all the very poor and the needy". He further added that "a society that is unable to accept those who suffer  with obvious reference to the encyclical SPE SALVI- is a cruel and inhuman soci- ety." If every man is our brother, particularly the weak one, those who suffer and the ones who need care, ought to be paramount in our attention, so that none of them feels for- gotten or neglected. He also stated that "the measure of the human care is essentially determined in relation to the suffering, and to the one who suffers, no matter what we think, be the single individual or the society. He then expressed the hope that the authorities make sure that major investments be focused on the health facilities that mostly care for the very poor. sick and needy. His speech was delivered while the argument over euthanasia was raging; it (euthanasia) was a topic of a debate on television, in a spot presented by the radicals. These are trying any kind of stratagem in favor of legaliza- tion of euthanasia, as presented on the Bishops' daily by Assuntina Morresi, an associate professor of physical Chem- istry at the University of Perugia, and also as a member of the National Committee on Bioethics, Betty Ford {Continued from "They were friends and that was what made govern- ment possible." said Roberts, adding that the topic seems particularly appropriate this week when the two parties are divided over dealing with the national debt ceiling. First Lady Michelle Obama and three former first ladies Nancy Reagan, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Rosalynn Carter, former President Bill Clinton, former President George W. Bush were among the dignitaries present at the funeral. A second funeral was held Thursday in Grand Rapids. Michigan. where Gerald Ford is buried at his presi- Page 1) dential museum. Speakers at the event discussed poli- tics, the White House and Ford's impact on substance and alcohol abuse treatment. Ford's funeral was similar to the final tributes for her husband. The ceremony was held at St. Margaret's Epis- copal Church in Palm Desert. a private but tele- vised event. Following the funeral, members of the pub- lic were invited to file past her casket and sign a guest book until midnight. Ford's body was interred on Thursday at the presidential museum along with her husband on the day that would have been Gerald Ford's 98 th birthday.

He reminded me of a couple of upcoming gigs for East Boston's own "Beawolfe" rock band. The group will be opening up for "Tavares" in a few weeks at the Sacred Heart Feast on July 16 at 7:15pm. Also, there's a booze cruise on August 6 around Boston Har- bor. For more information on "Beawolfe" call Dom at 617- 569-6529. I caught Beawolfe at the Coast Guard Base and they had the place hopping with the sixties/seventies sound which brought back good memories of "The SilenSirs' when I was the band's drum- mer. Dominic's always talk- ing about the great music back in the "Day" and I of- ten say the same thing ex- cept my "Day" was a few days before his "Day."

YOU KNOW YOU'RE GETTING OLD WHEN ... l just found out that former NASA Mercury Program As- tronaut and former US Senator John Glenn, D-Ohio was born on July 18. 1921, making 2011 his 90 th birth- day. I'remember as an 8 th grader filing into the TV room at St. Francis de Sales Grammar School in Roxbury to watch him orbit the Earth. Also. I decided to take a date out to Bar Louie at Patriot's Place in Foxboro. My date said to make sure I bring my license in with me since they are strict about carding everyone. Not the case I found out, As I approached the door, the bar's gatekeeper gave me the quick once over and told me to have a nice time. Guess that means he knew I was old enough to drink. Either way, Bar Louie or John Glenn, time passes on for me. FRONT PAGE SAID IT ALL On Sunday, June 26. New York held its annual gay pride parade, so I expected the NY Times to say some- thing about it on page one. However, they did one better with a front page photo with the caption, "A Day to March, and Maybe to Knell." The photo showed a female NYPD officer on bended knee pro- posing to her girlfriend. At this point in time, I don't care anymore about all this gay pride stuff, gay parades or gay marriage but [ do think it was inappropriate for a NYPD officer in uniform and most problem on parade detail proposing to a girl- friend. If you are on duty, do your job. Mixing business with pleasure in uniform has to be against depart- ment protocol, doesn't it? Don't people have any com- mon sense any more or am I just too old fashioned to see the humor in the photo? GLAD TO SEE JIM BACK AT THE HELM For 27 years, James Campano has been both edi- tor and publisher of The West Ender, the monthly news- paper dedicated to being the collective conscience of the old West End killed in the name of progress. Hours af- ter bringing the March issue to the Post Office, Jim ended up in the hospital arrd had a kidney removed. However, he is recovering and might I say much faster than the economy under President Obama. Stay healthy Jim and keep on speaking and printing the truth.

I KNEW THAT VOICE One morning when Todd from the "Tom and Todd Show" weekday mornings on AM 680 WRKO was on vaca- tion. Tom Finneran did the show with a fill-in co-host. I kept hearing the voice and finally, it came to me. Either it was Avi Nelson or some- one sounding just like him. It was indeed, Avi. Back in the seventies, both Avi and Jerry Williams were power- houses on WHDH and WBZ respectively. During forced busing, these shows both had ratings going through the roof. Jerry was the liberal and Avi the conservative. Is there a place today on Talk Radio for a guy like Avi Nelson? He was civil, calm and intelligent. Most talkers today are always trying seemingly to push buttons when they're not screaming into the mike. Avi was never full of himself like many of today's new breed talkers.

McGettrick at St. Gregory Church in Dorchester. He was born in Boston and grew up in Lower Mills before moving to Milton nearly 50 years ago. He was the owner of the popular Beachcomber on Wollaston Beach in Quincy. The Beachcomber, a few years back celebrated its 50 th anniversary. I be- lieve it opened for business in 1959. For a few years it was renamed Nostaglia but that name did hold water from the ocean across Quincy Shore Drive. It pro- vided some of the best Irish music entertainment on the South Shore and was quite a popular place to hang out at. Jimmy will be missed by all and will be long re- membered when good Irish music is being played at the Beachcomber.
