They should make the Royals travel by chicken bus

Just got back from Guatemala. (I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who has ever worn a Wichita Wranglers' Zack Greinke shirt in that country.)

So how are the Royals looking? All I'm hearing is Davies sucks. They should cut Davies. Why do we need Washburn? He'll just be blocking Davies! And so on.

Voodoo and weed

The two triumphs of liberalism in the past 30 years have been getting people to wear seat belts and getting people to stop smoking. Those are good things, backed by science. And I am a liberal who wears a seat belt and smokes cigarettes. Whatever.

Anyway, I'm starting to think that the actual application of liberal ideas is wrong-headed in most cases not related to seat belts and cigarettes. Maybe I'm just getting old (and sick of paying high taxes, especially on cigs). I'm a big fan of science -- but I will always be a liberal arts major. Should I trust global warming science? And, more importantly, should I trust the science behind pitch counts?

Maybe Nolan Ryan has it right? Or maybe Rick Peterson? What the fuck do I know?

The point of this is politics is upside-down and people are schizophrenic. Conservatives, by definition, should always embrace science. Liberals should stick with voodoo and weed.

Or maybe there was no point at all. Pretty sure it was the weed.

P.S. I take back what I said about Jim Bowden. He's actually kind of awesome.

P.P.S. Just realized I reverted to first person. Oh well.
