Adjoining Wrigley Field in Chicago — Cubs park — are the statues of former players and an announcer: Ron Santo, Ernie Banks and Harry Carey. The question then arises: Why? They didn’t win anything.
Recently, obituaries for the greatest Cub of all time, Andy Pafko, included his credentials: played with the Cubs in their last World Series in 1945; he also played for the Brooklyn Dodgers and played, also, for the Milwaukee Braves and played in four World Series during 17 years in the major leagues.
In closing, he deserves a statue.

An open letter to the very unAmerican congressmen in Washington.
I have a suggestion for all of you.
When the government is back running again, I think it would be a good idea for all of you to give up 10 percent of your salaries for about three months.
This ugly chapter in American history has caused by you much disappointment and disillusionment in our American way of life.
