TH owes 8 days of good stories

I challenge the TH to write an eight-day series of front-page articles chronicling the good Catholicism has brought to this area since the 1830s.

I challenge the Catholic laity of Dubuque to step forward with (tens of?) thousands of stories of good things priests have done.

I wonder which list would be longer: stories of abuse or stories of goodness and holiness?
