I think I found out what the many sirens were all about - SJPD visiting an apt. complex in San Jose, not far from the "border." (At least 5 patrol cars parked along the street.) Fight or domestic dispute?

Moffat's Crowning Jewel?

Or will he continue to be a letdown for fans of the classic series? Is there anything that can be done to salvage nuWho? I prefer the old Doctor, who was, as one might expect, more of an old-school Brit, stoic, stiff upper lip. After the relaunch, he's become more "human" (incorporation of this into the canon was even attempted earlier with the botched Fox movie) -- he gets lonely and is a bit more emo, though it hasn't gotten to an absurd CW level yet.

In light of that, a review of Burnham: ‘Only Power Restrains Power’
James Burnham’s The Machiavellians at Seventy.

Appeals to justice, natural law, and so on are ineffectual in the face of a foe determined to hold power and exercise it as he sees fit. He may be sincere in his disagreement, but a sincere believer in political error who seeks to carry out his agenda is still a threat to the common good.

As former Anglicans accept the invitation of Anglicanorum Coetibus, the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham grows with permanent facilities and thriving communities.

Some have been critical of the reforms to the Roman Missal under Pius V - but would the Sarum Rite be open to the same criticisms?
