The anger and disappointment over the last-minute hold on a potentially damning grand jury report on priest sex abuse in Pennsylvania is understandable.
The victims, the Catholic faithful and the public have waited too long already for these secrets to be spilled. We want the names. We want to know whether church officials or others tried to cover up their despicable actions.
