While Washington prattles on and on about what they cannot do, some of us are taking comfort in the season: October baseball. Settling in to see who dodges the pitch at the plate offers more peace than watching who dodges responsibility in D.C.
And it is a time to remember one of baseball’s great players, Andy Pafko, who died this week. Pafko played with Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron; he played in an era without ridiculous salaries and sneaky steroids. May we remember him as we watch the showdown – the one around the diamond.
