FAIR AND BALANCED
The Left accuses Bill O'Reilly of being a conservative hack who does not tell the truth. An honest appraisal of O'Reilly reveals the amazing hypocrisy of liberals. O'Reilly is honest and fair. He is conservative, but he lets the chips fall where they may. He goes out of his way to stay even on issues. His Leftist counterparts could take lessons in accountability and credibility from O'Reilly. The fact that they continue to see him as being untruthful is, in this reviewer's personal opinion, an example of how they are so blinded by their loss of power in modern Anmerican society that they cannot deal with reality.
WHY THE RIGHT GOES AFTER THE CLINTONS
The right does not go after the Clintons because Bill lied about Monica Lewinsky. They go after them because they think they may have ordered the murder of Vince Foster. They go after them because kids were murdered on railroad tracks in Mena, Arkansas because they may have witnessed their drug-running operation there in the 1980s. They go after them because there is a list of between 50 and 100 people mysteriously killed, all of whom knew the Clintons and had knowledge of their activities. These people were generally young and in good health. Did they all die by accident? To quote Shakespeare, "There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than can be dreamt of in your philosophy." In other words, it is possible they all were killed by means other than the Clintons' ordering their deaths, but it is so far from possible as to be very close to being, for all practical purposes, that with which is impossible. Bodyguards, witneses, drug buddies, state troopers, kids, etc. Dead. If the Clintons are responsible for some or all of their deaths, they got away with all of it. THAT is why the right goes after the Clintons. If I go missing, look in Ft. Marcy Park.
SPORTS GREATEST RIVALRY?
This may be the greatest rivalry in sports. The Yankee-Red Sox rivalry is as one-sided as the British and the IRA. The Dodgers and Giants, however, are like the North vs. the South in the Civil War.
A RICH HISTORY
The Giants have given their fans many thrills, and this book describes some of the most nostalgic of their days.
SC IS SECOND ONLY TO NOTRE DAME
The only football program better than USC over the past 100 years is Notre Dame.
WILLIAMS IS NOT A GOD
I always loved Ted Williams more than any other athlete. He truly was an American hero. However, some of his comments about Jesus Christ in this book are disturbing to me, and while I will always admire him, I admire him less because of what he said.
HALBERSTAM IS A RENAISSANCE MAN
David Halberstam is both one of the best writers in the country and one of the best sportswriters, a rare combo. He lovingly describes the careers and retirements of Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, Johnny Pesky and Dom DiMaggio in a nostalgic manner that evokes his great love for the Boston Red Sox and the beautiful game of baseball.
BASEBALL IN THE 21ST CENTURY
Michael Lewis is a fine writer and Billy Beane is a man of genius. This book puts the lie to Bud Selig's assertion that money alone creates competetiveness, and further describes the new realities of power offense vs. "little ball," and how a relief pitcher can be found to fill holes for one season.
IT'S A GOOD DAY TO BE A TROJAN!
This is terrific stuff. Southern California is a college with the first or second greatest college football tradition of all times, and this book describes how, after a long layoff, Pete Carroll has returned the Trojans to these previous heights.
