Pope Benedict on Tuesday reaffirmed the Roman Catholic Church’s opposition to the use of condoms in the fight against AIDS as he started a visit to Africa, where more than 25 million people have died from the disease in recent decades…

“It (AIDS) cannot be overcome by the distribution of condoms. On the contrary, they increase the problem,” he said in response to a question about the Church’s widely contested position against the use of condoms.



Glass Houses, by Anne Stuartglass-houses

This is a very old category romance published by Harlequin as part of its Men at Work line back in 1989. It is also my first (to my recollection) Anne Stuart.

Isn’t it amazing how good writing can come through even as annoying conventions make one want to tear one’s hair out? For example, please take a look at the back cover blurb:

Who is that sexy guy?

Name:              Michael Dubrovnik

Experience:       Millionaire and corporate raider. He has many hidden talents… seduction is just one of them.

Objective:         To acquire Glass House and its prime Manhattan location.

Until he met owner Laura de Kelsey Winston, Michael had never lost a negotiation. But the savvy businesswoman matched him move by move, kiss for kiss. And suddenly Michael was in danger of losing a far more precious commodity… his heart.
