Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Interesting, I Guess

So, LeBron is headed home to Cleveland near where he grew up.

That's kind of heart warming.

But he's also getting the maximum salary, so that's kind of mercenary.

I don't necessarily begrudge athletes their money, because the owners probably get more anyway.  But sometimes, you just have to tip your hat to guys like the late Tony Gwynn who stayed in one place, never tried to break the bank, got rich anyway and became local institutions.

I wonder how Cleveland will welcome him back.
