Loyola University Maryland has laid off 15 staff members and its president said Friday that the college had reached a "critical moment" where large tuition increases could no longer be sustained. The 15 layoffs did not include any faculty members, and Loyola spokesman Nick Alexopulos declined to elaborate on what types of staff and administrative positions were cut. In addition, 22 vacant positions were eliminated. "Higher education institutions throughout the U.S. are facing an uncertain future," Loyola President Rev. Brian F. Linnane wrote in an email to the campus community.

An economics professor from Loyola University in New Orleans traveled to Baltimore's Loyola last week to give a lecture, and everybody's been apologizing ever since. Everybody, that is, but the professor, Walter Block, who chalks up the flap to political correctness. Block said he knew he'd step on toes, since, by his account, he started off with a bit about how the Jesuit order has been "hijacked by a bunch of Marxists and liberation theologians." "I imagine that didn't go down too well with the Jesuit audience," he later told me by phone.

When a representative from Cristo Rey Jesuit High School visited Danielle Cook's class, the eighth-grader thought she fit the criteria for the rigorous college preparatory high school in Baltimore. She has been a straight-A student since preschool, is at the top of her class at Afya Public Charter School and participates in a half-dozen extracurricular activities. Then the representative described the school's dress code and its hairstyle restrictions, and Danielle realized something other than academics could keep her from attending: the 75 dreadlocks framing her face.

For the first time in history, the Roman Catholic Church has a pope from the New World, but liberal American Catholics should not expect Pope Francis to stray far from the old theology. Some things are excitingly different about this new pontiff. On matters of birth control, abortion, homosexuality, celibate priests and the role of women in the church, however, he is no revolutionary. When Argentina's Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio stepped out on the Vatican balcony as the new pope on Wednesday evening, all he was required to do was wave and give a blessing.

"One time, John Paul the Great called America, meaning North, Central and South America, the continent of hope," said Baltimore Archbishop William E. Lori.

Be still, my somewhat jaded American Catholic heart: A Jesuit? A Jesuit from Argentina who, as archbishop then cardinal, eschewed the chauffeur-driven limousine for the public buses of Buenos Aires? A Jesuit devoted to social justice and to helping the poor? And, he took the name of Francis, one of the coolest saints. Excuse me while I have a somewhat positive reaction to the smoke signals from Rome. Here we were - that is, me and a lot of my friends among the heretical faithful - thinking the whole process of electing a new pope was an exercise in identifying the safest old European conservative in red shoes.
