Like many of you, my highly informed and most handsome loyal readers, I have been deluged with more political information than I can digest lately. Is it just me or are the candidates hard of hearing or just answer whatever question they want (as opposed to the ones asked). Question: “What’s your favorite color, Senator?” Answer: “As my opponent repeatedly has said…” And I don’t have a clue as to the answer for the immigration problems. They don’t either. I know I need to be very careful talking about it. My ancestors didn’t come here because of the great hunting. And they sure didn’t see North America while on a vacation cruise and thought what a lovely place, we must build here some day. In truth, we probably landed with only the trip ticket stub and some high hopes, pretty much like our Latino brothers. You want to talk about immigration problems, talk to the American Indian. What’s all this got to do with sports? Politics is a sport. Similar to polo, but with a podium instead of a pony. Or professional wrestling without the wrestling part, just the interviews. You notice these irritating things more when you aren’t smoking.
While I got my rant on, what’s up with the Congressional hearings with Roger Clemens? With a war going on in Iraq, gas over $3 a gallon, gang shooting folks in all the major cities, and so on, I think if these public servants want to have a meet and greet with pro ballplayers, they buy a ticket and go to the ball park on their day off. Get back to work Congressmen. How about figuring out how we can have some new oil refineries? When there is peace everywhere, gas is under $2, there is a roast in every oven (I’m tired of chicken), a car in every garage, a smile on every face everywhere, you can meet the ballplayers on our dime. It will be our little treat for a job well done. Until then, at least try to look busy. For the rest of this story, read this week's Cadiz Record.
