Another $198 million down the tubes

Here we go again:

The Associated Press today reports (click on this post's title) that the Diocese of San Diego "has agreed to pay $198.1 million to settle 144 claims of sexual abuse by clergy, the second-largest payment since the U.S. abuse scandal erupted in 2002."

Let's see...$660 million in L.A., $198 million in San Diego, $100 million in Orange. To paraphrase the late Sen. Ev Dirksen of Illinois, a hundred million here, a hundred million there, and pretty soon you're talking about real money.
