Rainy Day Sunday Fun Zine

Hey, I'm old enough to remember when "kid pitch" was all there was. And my "Little League" wasn't one that played by official LL rules--y'know, like the silly-ass one where the runner can't take off until the ball has crossed the plate. With us, it was leadoffs and running on the pitch all the way. Yeah, we had lots of steals, but those of us that pitched developed good pickoff moves early. I was a lefty pitcher who got 4 in one game once. The runners just couldn't believe I was coming to first while looking at the plate. All in all, I think "kid pitch" is a lot better than having adults pitch. You learn how to pitch, and you learn how to hit when the pitcher is trying to get you out.

BTW, Charlie Manson was sentenced to death. His sentence was automatically commuted to life when the Supreme Court put a moratorium on capital punishment in 1972.

"President Obama is the chief of state of one of the oldest free societies in the world, but his official White House website runs teasers such as: "For even more Fox lies, check out the latest ‘Truth-O-Meter.’” It gives off the air of somebody only marginally less paranoid than this week’s president-for-life in some basket-case banana republic ranting on the palace balcony because his interior security chief isn’t doing a fast enough job of disappearing his enemies"
Has Charles Johnson taken a job running the WH website?
