Washington Post columnist and author George Will discusses the new edition of Men At Work: The Craft of Baseball and the news of the day, from bank reform to immigration policy.
I don't always agree with George Will's politics, but he is by far my favorite columnist, if that makes any sense.
good segment, Brian.
Its nice that he is calling our president Obama a worthy adversary. Instead of a marxist communist black hitler.. good show old chap..
While I disagree with just about everything Mr. Will says (on politics, at least, the baseball talk was spot on), it's refreshing to hear a *reasonable* conservative who can back up his opinions with logical, sensible arguments. There are not enough people like this being heard in the media today, on either side.
No one seems to acknowledge that the Arizona law will probably lead to LINGUISTIC profiling. That if you're caught speaking Spanish that can also make you "suspicious" as an illegal. So there's dangerous potential here for freedom of speech restrictions.
The irony about PNC Field in Pittsburgh - I am a lifelong Pirates fan - is:
I agree, beautiful new stadium, but Pirates fans are definitely not assured of winning 60 games!
But I'll keep the faith. Pirates fans are loyal, like Cubs fans, no matter what happens.
Scary comments all around
"Picking it up and throwing it is the easy thing" is an irresponsible overstatement, Will's customary trope.
