To the Editor:
    The statute of limitations may indeed preclude criminal prosecution of the alleged rapes. But obstruction of Justice is a criminal matter in its own right. The statutory clock on that prosecution only started last week with the revelation of cardinal Mahoney's actions.  The many potential plaintiffs to civil cases may not be U.S. citizens, may be dead, may be unable to pursue civil cases for a hundred reasons. But the State must take care that the law be faithfully executed, on the mighty no less than on the weak.
