National Exposure

An old Chinese proverb goes: “You cannot begin to remove the speck out of your neighbors eye when you have a log in you own.”  Being bored with the daily drama surrounding the Boss and the Yankees, the New York Times reports on how the Phillies front office bungles talent and at the same time subtley comparing Ryan Howard to Dontrelle Willis, Donovan McNabb and Tiger Woods. 

Major League Baseball has long been looking for the kind of power hitter who can take pitches and hit to the opposite field, who has been to college and been seasoned in the minor leagues, who can prove to young African-American athletes that basketball and football are not the only marquee options.

Hey Ed, just promote him again, please, if not because it makes baseball sense, then for the betterment of society in general.
