Yankees Reach ALCS;
Cards Break Nats Fans' Hearts

American Spectator, by Aaron Goldstein

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/13/2012 10:06:58 AM

It was not until after I arrived in New York on Friday night by way of bus that I learned the Yankees had beat the Orioles 3-1 in Game 5 of the ALDS to advance to the ALCS against the Detroit Tigers. The ALCS commences tomorrow night here in NYC. I would have much preferred to see the O's & the A's. After all, the Tigers and Yankees have faced each other in the ALDS in 2006 and 2011. Since 1995, the Yankees have been in the post-season every year (save for 2008).

Comments:
I, too, was pulling for the Nats. Krauthammer might be emotionally unavailable for the weekend.

I feel sorry for Dr. Krauthammer. He is a huge fan of the Nationals. Last night on fox Krauthammer said he attended 30 Nationals games this year.

The Cardinals may be hated by those who envy success, but, like last year, the team has heart. Last night's game had all the makings of an improbable, feel-good, comeback Hollywood movie - the kind seldom made anymore. Onward Redbirds, 12 in 12!

One minute of silence in respect to Dr. Krauthammer:

60, 59, 58....tick, tick, tick...5, 4, 3, 2, 1. ~~


Okay... Now: -- GO, YOU AMAZING CARDINALS!!!

This old curmudgeon still despises inter-league play. It's taken some of the magic out of the World Series when teams have played each other in the regular season. Used to be you looked forward to the WS even if your team didn't make it you could always root for the NL or AL.

I will spare everyone my tirade re the designated hitter rule since I would run out of space.

From Ichiro's run through the fungo circle to evade the home plate tag in Game 2 to McClouth's "foul ball" in Game 5, it's obvious that the fix is in. How is it that every controversial call is always made in favor of the Yankees?

I understand that you're not supposed to use the term "choke." But that Nats closer...

There is something scary about the Cards. It seems like they live for the one-strike-away-from-elimination moment. Their fans must be on medication.

During the Nationals/Cardinals' game last night the camera was on Woolfie da Blitzer for a second or so. (At least, we thought it was him, with a lady of same age). He must be one disappointed dude right now, with Romny/Ryan running tall and the Wash.Nationals whooped in their own city by the St.Lou Cardinals! What a come back game. Go, Redbirds!

A Star Player Accused, and
a Flawed Rape Investigation
New York Times, by Walt Bogdanich    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/16/2014 3:36:33 PM     Post Reply
Tallahassee, Fla. — Early on the morning of Dec. 7, 2012, a freshman at Florida State University reported that she had been raped by a stranger somewhere off campus after a night of drinking at a popular Tallahassee bar called Potbelly’s. As she gave her account to the police, several bruises began to appear, indicating recent trauma. Tests would later find semen on her underwear. For nearly a year, the events of that evening remained a well-kept secret until the woman’s allegations burst into the open, roiling the university and threatening a prized asset: Jameis Winston, one of the marquee names of

How Safe Are U.S. Ferries?

Almost 300 people are missing off the coast of South Korea after a ferry there, carrying mostly schoolchildren, capsized and sank. About 164 people have been pulled from the wreckage, and the race to find survivors is well underway. No one ever expects a disaster, but this one has especially stunned people. Passengers say they heard a loud thud, which suggests the vessel collided with something, but it´s too early to tell. "This particular ferry was built in Japan, who make some of the best ships in the world. It wasn´t anywhere near full and it was travelling a well-worn

Unfinished Business Complicates
Clinton’s Diplomatic Legacy

WASHINGTON — It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered. Mrs. Clinton played an energetic role in virtually every foreign policy issue of President Obama’s first term, advocating generally hawkish views internally while using her celebrity to try to restore America’s global standing after the hit it took during the George W. Bush administration. But her halting answer suggests a problem that Mrs. Clinton could confront as she

Here’s What the CIA Director
Was Really Doing in Kiev

The head of the CIA just made a secretive journey to Ukraine—to do what, he won’t say. But the answer could change the power equation in the hottest of geopolitical hotspots. The Obama administration is now considering a new policy to share more real-time intelligence with the interim government in Kiev after pressure from some in the U.S. military, Congress and U.S. allies in Ukraine. Over the weekend, CIA director John Brennan met with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and First Deputy Prime Minister Vitaliy Yarema to discuss the formation of new, more secure channels for sharing U.S. intelligence with the country

Liberals in rose-colored glasses
consider ObamaCare a ‘victory’

Ever since ObamaCare supposedly hit the arbitrary target of 7 million sign-ups by March 31, its supporters have been taking the most premature victory lap since conservative proponents of the Iraq War (like me) crowed about the results of the three elections inside Iraq in 2005 and how they demonstrated the country was on the verge of a historic peace. “It’s all over but the shouting: ObamaCare is working,” said Eugene Robinson in Tuesday’s Washington Post. “All the naysaying in the world can’t drown out mounting evidence that the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature domestic achievement, is a real success.” Those

   

 



 
South Korea says hundreds missing
after ferry sinks off southern coast
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/16/2014 4:19:44 AM     Post Reply
South Korean officials said Wednesday that nearly 300 people were still missing several hours after a passenger ferry sank off that country´s southern coast, leaving at least two dead and seven injured. A government official had said earlier Wednesday that around 100 people were unaccounted for, but the number was later revised upward due to a tallying error. The ferry was carrying 477 people, most of them high school students, and was bound for the island of Jeju when it sent a distress call at around 9 a.m. local time Wednesday as it began leaning to one side, according to

Could the Boston Marathon
bombings have been prevented?
CBS News*, by Staff    Original Article

BOSTON - It was a shocking slaying in a Boston suburb that sometimes goes years without one homicide, let alone three at once. The victims´ throats had been sliced in a home on a tree-lined street, marijuana and cash strewn over their bodies. The investigation languished for more than 18 months until just a few days after the Boston Marathon explosions, when the FBI identified the suspected bombers as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, ethnic Chechens who emigrated from Russia to the U.S. about a decade ago.

apology for ‘offending’ Obama

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
