    Crime & Punishment: Woman leads police on high-speed chase to avoid paying $9.15 tab
    Cardinal Edward Egan has had time to think it over and he's not sorry about that outbreak of child sex abuse at the Archdiocese of Bridgeport. Speaking to Connecticut Magazine, Egan, who was bishop of the archdiocese from 1988 to 2000, looked back on the apology he gave in 2002 and declared, “I never should have said that.” Egan, now 79, defensively said that most (though records show not all) of the abuse, allegedly committed by seven different priests, happened before he took over the Bridgeport office. As for failing to go to the police, a la Joe Paterno, and scuttling the priests elsewhere? “I don't think even now you're obligated to report [suspected abuse] in Connecticut.” (Several legal experts disagree.) No word on if Egan feels there is any moral obligation to inform the authorities of child molestation or if, in hindsight, it might seem like a good idea.
