"Nazi" and "cocaine" aren't great PR buzzwords. That said, bad press is all relative.
So, in comparison to the myriad horrific stories detailing the behavior of Catholic priests, a BBC News story about how Father Stephen Crossan was recorded snorting cocaine in a room full of Third Reich relics is almost refreshing in its unsavory nature. Unsurprisingly, Crossan's recent request for a leave of absence was granted.
Sneaking communion wine? That's quaint. Here's what else happened this week:
- Folks on FordTrucks love diesel as much as they love America and apple pie. So the prospect of an oil-burning F-150 is one enticing prospect. But is this writer making promises the Blue Oval won't keep?
- Blurred out license plates are as common as trolls and porn online. But is it necessary? One member on CorvetteForum asked his brethren why it's so common, and their answers totally run the gamut.
- Most people in the press haven't gotten a chance to test Coventry's new 3-Series fighter. Of course, some of the brand's super fans have already gotten a taste, as this JaguarForums thread will attest.
- What various cars would look like if they were supermodels is an interesting question, and one the fans on DodgeForum have embraced wholeheartedly. Honestly? We think lowrider girl wins the day.
- The Jeep Wrangler is a pretty sturdy piece of kit, though repeatedly rolling one isn't going to do the venerable off-roader any huge favors. Just check out what happened to this JK-Forum member's ride.
