An otherwise sound friend of mine who played soccer in college is fond of telling me that more people in the world play soccer than any other sport. Perhaps so. But I’m just as fond of pointing out to him that they play it so they don’t have to watch it.p>OK, I’m being uncharitable. The games we love are the games we learned when we were children. I love baseball (the real beautiful game) because my dad had a baseball glove on my hand before I could stand up. That’s why for me baseball is still the most fun you can have with your pants on. So, if there are grownups who get actual pleasure from watching 10 men (or is it 12?) with unpronounceable names dash about in their underwear for hours kicking a checkered ball to determine who wins 1-0 (while their low forehead fans maim each other in the stands), well, there’s just no accounting for taste. Heck, I understand you can buy sushi in some major league ball parks (most of them on the planet California). Life is nothing if not mysterious. br> — Larry Thornberry br> Tampa, FL /p>

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
