Folks! I Don’t Think This is “Kansas” Anymore!!

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

The group “Kansas” in “Carry On My Wayward Son” mused that wisdom is NOT knowing.  This “unwise” philosophizing is a  combination of: (1) “1984′s”, “Ignorance is Strength” and; (2)  ”The Wizard of Oz”‘s, “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!”.  Since wisdom IS knowledge, and a Just Republic needs a wise citizenry, I would ask you to look to, as we work to reveal what is happening behind ALL of our Nation’s public “curtains”.  Here is a first thought I would ask you to consider.

Why would any wise major league baseball executive, player, or fan do anything to weaken MLB’s best product and game:  Season long Pennant Races and a World Series that is worthy of its name?  This is what we have always thought MLB teams were formed, and their players born, to compete for.  It is only this highly competitive playing field that contributes to their giving to US (a quaint notion?)—their “personal” best effort.  Which wise sports fan would accept less—we ask?
