    perhaps even by the same diarist, I commented recently that the lid is only just coming off this stuff. The Catholic sex abuse scandal? Just the tip of the iceberg, folks. So much more is going to come to light.

    These people who have been so busy since the 80s, frantically denouncing child sex-abuse survivors as "hysterical" and "liars"? Theirs is already a tougher and tougher row to hoe.

    Again, the shit is only just hitting the fan.

    Thanks for the diary.

      children is endemic in many cultures. Many impoversihed families sell thier girl children into dismal slavery in brothels like Limbaugh loves to visit on his frequent jaunts.

      THe best methods to silence children is shame, dangling the value of family (like an abusive family has any worth) and denying that the acts are harmful (implying those injured by them are weak)

        make the connection between Rush Limbaugh's depraved behavior, and sexual servitude of girls and women in third-world countries.
