Lennon Line

John Lennon, who would have turned 73 October 9 if he had not been murdered, said, “When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.”

Thank you Veterans

Veterans Day

President Woodrow Wilson, declaring what is now Veteran’s Day, urged Americans to be “filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory . . . .”

Thank you Veterans!

Celebrating Success

What did Mets Pitcher RA Dickey do after winning his 20th game of the season, solidifying his Cy Young bid? He went home to his wife and four children. “I gave them all a bath and put them to bed,” Dickey said. “They’re not really impressed by what I do.”

Dickey’s children probably ARE impressed, but by his Daddy skills, regardless of how he performs on the field.

Meanwhile, we Mets fans are celebrating the most successful pitch in the game today: RA Dickey’s knuckleball.

A New Year. A New You?

What better time of year to contemplate this proposition: How can YOU be better next year?

Declaration of Independence

Let us not forget that our Declaration of Independence includes the following reasons that England’s tyranny was worth sacrificing “our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor”: “imposing Taxes on us without our Consent”, “arbitrary government”, “altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments”, and “declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us”.

Johan Santana Pitches the First No-Hitter in Mets History

With his career-most 134th pitch, Met Ace Johan Santana, who had completed only nine games in his entire Hall of Fame-caliber career, completed the first no-hitter in Mets history.

Bravo, Johan!

 


The Forgotten Part of Martin Luther King’s Dream

I believe that all fair-minded Americans strive to fulfill that part of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream where his children “will not be judged by the color of their skin”.  But what about the second, equally as powerful, part of his dream where he WANTED his children to be judged “by the content of their character.” Indeed, he envisioned an America NOT where we fail to make any judgments whatsoever, but where we hold each other accountable for what we can, and should, control: our actions, our inactions, and, in a word, our integrity.
