Gwynn & Ripken at Cooperstown
Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken are being inducted into the Hall of Fame today. The Washington Post had a four-page section devoted just to "Iron Man" Cal: "The Man, The Myth." I have the highest respect for both Gwynn and Ripken, but I think that part of the wave of admiration for them is related to shame about some of the tawdry side of baseball's recent past. Well, at least umpires haven't been caught betting like the NBA ref. And at least no MLB players have been running dog fighting rings...
Nats sign Young, Belliard
The Nationals showed they want to keep fans happy by winning, signing first baseman Dmitri Young and Ronnie Belliard in the past few days. See MLB.com. Which leads us to the uncomfortable question:
Will Nick return?
I hope so, but he may not, at least not this year. See MLB.com.

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.
Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.
The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:
- Wild birds (LAST)
- Science & Technology
- Latin America
- Culture & Travel
- Canaries ("Home birds")
- Baseball (FIRST)
