Seriously, congrats to the Hawk. I was disappointed to see that Bert (Be Home) Blyleven just barely missed (I exchanged emails several months ago, I think it was with the great Wlady, about my belief that Blyleven also was deserving), but am now more confident that Blyleven too will eventually get in, as he should. Also, I had never seriously considered Roberto Alomar, who probably (and deservedly) suffers because of his nasty spitting incident. What a jerk. But I did, for the first time, check his stats just now, and was amazed to see they compare VERY favorably to those of the great Joe Morgan, one of my favorite players ever. In many ways, his career is as close to identical with Morgan’s as two careers will ever be — except that Morgan was a respected leader on every one of his teams, while Alomar was a spitmeister. Anyway, Alomar seems well poised to make it in future years as well. Finally, for what it’s worth, I think reliever Lee Smith belongs in the Hall as well.
Anyway, since I have now proved my powers of persuasion, I will start chilling the bubbly to celebrate former Saint linebacker Rickey Jackson’s impending induction into Canton as well!
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?
