Tips from the Fans

Once upon a time in the 70s, Roy White of the New York Yankees was in a terrible batting slump. His teammates and his coaches couldn’t get him out of it. At a loss, Roy took to talking to the fans in the stands when he went out to play left field, asking them for advice. Some of it must’ve been good advice, because Roy soon broke out of his slump and finished with a good year.

Sometimes I get tips from my readers–and I welcome it. Naturally I want to put up posts that you want to read. “Whiterabbit” has given me several ideas for Newswithviews columns that I’ve been able to use to good effect. And of course getting advice from the readers means that I actually do have readers–readers who are paying attention and thinking along with me. It’s a great asset and I appreciate it very much.

Well, it’s time to try to write this week’s Newswithviews. I want you all to know that when you offer advice, I listen.

I’ve probably left myself open for some nasty comments by liberals, but I can just delete them. “P*** up a rope” is not helpful.

  1. Athens is referred to as the cradle of democracy but it was a tyranny of the majority over the minority, plus much of its “citizenship” were slaves of one sort or another. The mob didn’t like what Socrates was saying to the youth so he was put to death. Our Founding Fathers spent countless hours studying the different types of government and have left a trough full of books and writings for us to research and learn from about how our Constitutional form of government came about. A big problem in our present-day America is its citizens no longer pick up books and read, but let the “experts” in the Noose tell them what to think.
