A trio of 3 run homers off of Scott Baker, the Home Run Maker from Our Man Youk, Mike Lowell, the Greatest American Hero, and New Guy Nick Green have powered Boston to a 6-0 lead after 4 innings in Boston today.
It's Sox manager Terry Francona's birthday today. Both Francona and his father Tito were major league players.
I've been doing a lot of thinking about Dan Carlin's most recent Hardcore History show (www.dancarlin.com). He is talking about the Eastern Front battles during the Second World War, and firstly the sheer volume of people who died on both sides, and secondly the extent to which so many of the soldiers on both sides were slaves to evil ideologies-there were victims on both sides.
It just made me think about demonization in general, and how casually people, myself included, throw around words like "evil" and "monstrous" and "barbaric". I'm going to try to be more careful about what I call people.
