RE: Opening day is upon us. Is baseball political? Do KVining and Botnst play baseball?
I used to love to go to ball games back when the Stros played in the Astrodome. The place was perfectly air conditioned, the lighting was perfect and the seating comfortable and every seat in the house seemed like a good one. The new stadium, Minutemaid Park (formerly "Enron Field") is an open air zoo, enormous in size, and the view you get is a crap shoot. I've only been to one game since the built it.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
