A Dan Brown-ish Plot Unfolds in Mt. Kisco

Today's New York Times published a story titled "2 Charged With Fraud of Millions from Pianist." While financial scandals are often fascinating in their own right, the scammers created a a baroccoco page turner in order to deceive their mark. The story, by Manny Fernandez, details the scenario that Vickram Bedi and Helga Invarsdottir concocted as follows:
"Mr. Bedi’s uncle supposedly had learned that Polish priests tied to the conservative Roman Catholic organization Opus Dei were trying to harm Mr. Davidson, the district attorney’s office said. The Central Intelligence Agency, Mr. Bedi told Mr. Davidson, was working with him to prevent the priests from infiltrating the United States government, officials said."

Is this another instance of the Times' anti-Catholic bias or could it be ....news?

Kudos to the defenders of parishiioners' rights and privileges. You are doing great service to The Catholic Church to turn its face to the parishioners. Saulius Simoliunas

Yes, it's news, but not exactly news "that's fit to print." I would expect to read this while waiting in the supermarket checkout line as a headliner for The Weekly World News.
