Palate Cleanser: Kindness and Compassion Win The Day

I don’t know which team actually won this game at the Little League World Series, but I think this young ball player’s actions demonstrate that he’s a real winner, regardless of the score:

More, please.

  1. I love how spontaneous and unhesitating the kid is. He just did what he felt he needed to do, and that was to think about the other guy first.

  2. This is reassuring. In sports as well as politics, the emphasis on “attitude” has grown in a way that diminishes the importance of “sportsmanship.” It’s good to know that common decency can still be found.

  3. Oh, it was Little League!? That explains it. People play on different teams all the time, so your opponent one day might be on the same team as you the next day, or soon.

  5. Bob Gibson, Don Drysdale, Juan Mariachal would’ve hit you the next time as well.

    I note that you’re always there, going to bat for the scummy little scammer. Why is that?

    Because I don’t think he’s the epitome of evil, bad as some of the things he has done are.
    And people are ready to accuse him of things that aren’t so. There’s plenty of that. And I don’t like false or unfair accusations.

    The explanation in the 2020 book of why Trump broke off with Jeffrey Epstein also doesn’t make Trump look so good. He was almost forced into breaking with Epstein.

    You may have noticed that I defend Joe Biden against unwarranted charges also. I don’t think he heads a “crime family.” I think Hunter Biden’s text message to his daughter on January 3, 2019 has been totally misinterpreted (by Stephen Bannon originally. when acting as a consultant to Rudolph Giuliani to help him with the Laptop files. I don’t know why more people don’t see that this interpretation is preposterous – it’s repeated today in a column in the Wall Street Journal by Holman W. Jenkins Jr..)

    I think Bill Clinton (and not any part of the FBI acting on its own) conspired to murder the Branch Davidians at Waco, but I don’t think he was responsible for a massive death list of individually plotted murders; and I don’t think he or Hillary killed Vincent Foster. He merely covered it up after the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the United States, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, rushed into the Oval Office in the middle of the day of July 20, 1993, for an unscheduled meeting with him and Sandy Berger, for which an almost certainly untruthful explanation was leaked to Fred Barnes and published on page 10 of the March 14, 1994 issue of the New Republic, right at the time of known Foster case leaks; and there he begged for it to be covered up because, I think he explained, Vincent Foster had been trying to blackmail him for money, and this concerned Bill Clinton too..

  7. Wrong thread. Should be in the Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste: Cashing In On Yesterday’s Events At Mar-a-Lago thread.

  8. @6/@7. No runs, no hits, one error, eh Sammy? 😉

    The search warrant was authorized by a federal court upon the required finding of probable cause. The property receipt is a document that federal law requires law enforcement agents to leave with the property owner. The department filed the motion to make public the warrant and receipt in light of the former president’s public confirmation of the search, the surrounding circumstances, and the substantial public interest in this matter.

    Per CBS News, if Trump wants to oppose unsealing of the warrant or the receipt, he has until 3 pm, Friday to do so.

    Also, sides of Trump have been questioned in the past about hw he handled classified material.

    Third, let me address recent unfounded attacks on the professionalism of the F.B.I. and Justice Department agents and prosecutors. I will not stand by silently when their integrity is unfairly attacked.
