I am very cautious in making the
following statements to a 54 yr Yankees fan although i did think a
lot of Willy Mays. I'll probably get my tires slashed next time i
go to the big apple.
Own up, Mitch, didn't you just emerge from your mother's womb 54 yrs
- I don't believe we should wear T-shirts or caps or . . . that
promote big profit-making capitalist enterprises.
- About 2000 years ago i took my stand against bread and circus,
because it distracted all us Romans from the stinking slavery
that enabled our empire.
- Congratulations to the starving underfed child in - you name
it - who made it through one more day.
Just in case you imagine that i'm a complete troglodyte, my wife and
i thoroughly enjoyed Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris last night. In
the process we contributed to the profits of the theater chain, film
distributor, and Woody. We also consumed about 1 gallon of gas
thereby contributing to air pollution. BUT, the worst of it all is
that neither of us contributed any effort at all to advance the
political struggle during those two hours.

JETER for not only getting his 3,000 hit lifetime, but going 5

AND, the kid who caught Derek's home run -- didn't want money
have had a small fortune), didn't want anything but to give
ball in person and meet him. (There IS grace in this world.)
And so, for a moment, there are no wars, no nuke disasters,
prisons, no bad things happening anywhere.
Yip yip yip yippieeeeee!
