Of course.

Final word has to go to Jeter: “I know that there’s a lot of people that have much more talent than I do, throughout the course of my career, not just now. I can honestly say I don’t think anyone played harder. I don’t. Maybe just as hard, but I don’t think anyone had more of an effort. Every single day I went out there and tried to have respect for the game, play as hard as I possibly could. I did it here in New York, which I think is much more difficult to do. I’m happy for that.”

Number 2.  Derek Jeter.  Number 2.



Even more so when stripped down like this.

The final curtain

If noted Jeter-hater, Paul Campos, is becoming a fanboy, then I don't know what to say.  I do predict that there will be many bro-tears over the next 10 days or so.

The butch coalition

A reminder, once again, of the bullet the American people (and the rest of the world, for that matter) dodged in 2008.

Ralph Nader -- perhaps a soupçon of all three

Ralph Nader:

Profoundly ignorant.

Profoundly cynical.

Profoundly arrogant.

That is all.

And no, still haven't forgiven him for this.

Steve Post, RIP

The voice of New York mornings in those heady days of the 80s and 90s has died.

He rejected notions that his views represented 1960s idealism, however much he admired those values. In a 1989 interview with Newsday, he called himself “a Hobbesian, not a Marxist.” He continued, “I believe people are essentially brutal, murderous, lying bastards who put on masks of civility to make society work.”

Or, as he later said on the air, “Just when you think you’ve scraped the bottom, you find you’re only scratching the surface.”
