A sad day for Baseball Monday, especially in Boston, with the loss of star player and star human being, Johnny Pesky (See Aaron G…).
I never saw Pesky play. But I enjoyed watching Pesky teaching young players to bunt before spring training games in Winter Haven, Florida, where I was working as a reporter in the seventies.
He was a natural, and you could see the youngsters responding to him. I experienced the Pesky charm first hand at a Red Sox media function where I got to talk a little baseball with him. It was clearly his favorite subject. The stories were first-rate and well told. And he put as much into the stories if he were telling them to Ted Williams, or to a local reporter stealing a little time away from the job.
Guys like Johnny Pesky make baseball special. He will be missed.
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.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
