The Red Sox are off today. Boston takes on the New York Yankees tomorrow for a weekend series.
Dan Carlin's Common Sense (www.dancarlin.com) was outstanding this week. Carlin interviews Vincent Bugliosi, the author of, among other books, "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder" and "Reclaiming History:The Assassination of JFK", both of which are outstanding, and both of which I have read.
In his monologue section, Carlin also touches on the Tea Parties, a subject which has come up here now and then. Carlin cited Janeane Garofalo's slightly unhinged comments on Keith Olbermann's "Countdown" accusing all Tea Partiers of being racists, and notes that this is ludicrous-all presidents attract the kinds of extreme rhetoric that some Partiers exhibited towards Obama. I have to admit that Carlin has a point there.
