Cardinal Law speaks briefly to reporters

Law appeared at a mid-day press conference ostensibly to answer questions on the bishops' stance on Iraq. During the session, all of the questions remained decorously on point. But as soon as it ended, dozens of reporters with notebooks, microphones or cameras, rushed the dais where he sat. They shouted questions about the new sex abuse policy. At first, Law begged off.As he was guided out of the conference room, the mob of reporters moved with him and at that point he spoke briefly. When asked if he agreed with the church's response to the sexual abuse scandal, he said "My experience is that an extraordinary amount of steps have been taken toward healing. For the past ten months, I've been apologizing."
