Time for Lou Piniella to shake things up

I thought the error was unfortunate but Wood was the guy that walked two men. Yet, Kerry Wood was a gentleman and was a Cub through and through. Exciting..at times.. but, Kevin Gregg does nothing for meI am a Cub fan, but I do not give a crap about whether a player is "a Cub through and through". What exactly does that mean? Are you saying he was a loser? If that is what being a Cub means, give me a bunch of non-Cubs who can win games and maybe win a championship. This is the type of attitude that fans of other teams make fun of Cubs fans for having. On this issue, they are completely right.  (Jul 13, 2009 | post #81)

Time for Lou Piniella to shake things up

Although I am a Cub fan and hate the Cardinals, I have to agree with most of your premise. I don't know about Zambrano being a womanizing drunk (or what relevance it has to his ability to play baseball), the players you mention do all have symptoms that could be indicative of steroid abuse. At this point in time, any player who was good until +/-2006 must prove himself innocent to me - and it is too bad that even the innocent ones can't prove a negative. I do think that many members of the Cardinals (and every other team) also are suspicious. I kind of like Pujols and grudgingly respect his abilities, but I can't see that he did not take steroids at some point (although I cannot prove it and have no evidence).  (Jul 13, 2009 | post #80)

Fish kill reported along Rock River

I agree, but where in my post do you see a call for panic?  (Jul 13, 2009 | post #16)

Well... The river contains much less fish than it did last month.  (Jul 9, 2009 | post #14)

Fish kill reported along Rock River

I was not saying that the toxic agent was causing long-term effects. I was merely pointing out that such a drastic fish kill will have long-term effects on the fish population for years to come. Are you saying that a lot of fish did not die?  (Jul 9, 2009 | post #13)

That is great. I don't buy the ethanol explanation and I am wondering about the long-term effects on the fish population.  (Jun 25, 2009 | post #5)

It must just be a coincidence he came out with this on a day where nothing else is going on.  (Jun 25, 2009 | post #53)

Did this affect a great percentage of all of the fish? Will there be any fish left for fishing?  (Jun 23, 2009 | post #1)

You apparently do not understand how to love a child like the Catholic clergy does. Think all of the unloved children in the world. The priests are just trying to pleasure them one at a time. How can you deny these children the love that they could be getting?  (Jun 21, 2009 | post #667)

This is an insult. I do not write about how great Coca-Cola is or why it is so much better than Pepsi because I get paid. I don't have to be paid to want to tell everybody why Coca-Cole consistently beats Pepsi in blind taste tests or that Coke is just plain delicious and way more refreshing than Pepsi. Money should never be an issue when you are just telling the people why Coke is a delicious taste sensation and Pepsi is usually flat and their bottling and shipping methods leave so much to be desired in comparison with Coke.  (Jun 21, 2009 | post #1)

How can you say all of these things about an institution that loves children so much? Did you even read the story? These clergymen loved these children in every way possible. Sometimes they even loved more than one child at the same time. Who are you to say which way is wrong and which way is right? They took incredible risks and gave their loving to these children in full knowledge that they would be condemned for all of these loving acts by a public that just does not understand the love that an older man can share with younger boys and girls. I don't think that anyone else was lining up to give these kids the love that they craved. Cut them some slack. Jesus said that there is no wrong way to love a child, and these priests gave them every possible inch of love that they could summon, and it sounds like they were giving them this love as often as possible. Why don't you reserve judgment until you try to love children in the same way that priests are loving little children all over the world right now? Perhaps if you became a priest, you would see the beauty of fully loving a little child and sharing your life with as many small children as you can find. If you are not a catholic, maybe you just are incapable of understanding this aspect of love. Try opening your mind to new experiences like our priests do every single day. Perhaps you can't see the beauty of the look on the face of a tiny little child after you have finished pleasuring them for the night.  (Jun 20, 2009 | post #665)

Time for Lou Piniella to shake things up

I am a Cubs fan and have followed every Cubs game for years, but I can't even find the interest this season. They are so bad it is boring. Even the 2005 team was so bad that it was fun to watch how bad they were. I am doing other things with my summer. I was insulted by some of the off-season moves (but not KW, I was glad to see him go). I felt like the team was reverting to the "they will come for any slop we put on the field" mentality, and so I refuse to support them with my time, audience share and ticket money. The Sox are also bad, but at least they have a pulse.  (Jun 18, 2009 | post #59)

Homicide inside the walls of Stateville

Two percent bad arrests is unacceptable. When I was a kid, I approached the line for "The Zipper". My dad asked the carival worker if the ride was safe. The guy looked offended and said, "I put it together myself. The odds are one in one-hundred that anything would go wrong." I did not ride the Zipper that day.  (Jun 9, 2009 | post #85)
