Maybe if they added a bicycle columnist to the site...

Maybe if they advocated using bathtub Marys as space savers. That would be good for page views.

I'm not Catholic, but I thought there was some very good reporting and articles of interest.

Like I said, I never understood it. What about other faiths? it was odd that the Globe concentrated on Catholics and no one else.

I'm really curious what happens to Eagan. She seemed thrilled to finally be considered a Globe employee and could leave the Herald behind since she's so much better than that.

She is someone that I can't figure out how she got to where she is.

No voice for radio.

So the Crux site has gone from a place of independent ethical journalism....to the control of a group that is in the back pocket of the Catholic Church?

K of C is not known for asking probing questions.... They were conspicuously silent during the Church abuse scandal

What do they do? Another one of those mysterious groups like the Masons...this is 2016, you gotta wonder why these secretive fraternal organizations are still around.

No, they are not secretive. They are a Catholic Fraternal group....that engages in charity work. Nothing secretive at all.

Knights of Columbus: What we do. Honestly, Google isn't perfect, but it works pretty well a fair amount of the time to find links like that that answer questions like yours

As for secretive, eh, they're not Masons or Skull and Bones or Omega House. They're men united by faith, friendship and a desire to do some volunteering. Some people like that. It's OK if you don't and, if you are, like me, perfectly happy living the hermit's life and not joining any organizations that would have you as a member.
