The drama played out, they said, in O'Malley's conference room, where issues of faith sometimes dominate discussion. But Wednesday night, it more closely resembled a grand jury room, where 13 board members and one cardinal in his workaday Franciscan friar's outfit and sandals focused intently on evidence that received scant attention just six nights earlier, when the board acquiesced to O'Malley's recommendation that a ``severe reprimand" was punishment enough. After all the witnesses were heard, O'Malley, who had had little to say during the protracted testimony, invited each board member to speak. All did. Then O'Malley urged the board to fire Haddad. The board agreed. Thanks be to God Helen stopped the insanity of writing letters and begging Cardinal Sean to listen to the evidence and went directly to the Boston Globe to show everyone how things are still working up there. I find this story about the sudden eagerness of the Board stomach turning.
