What was on deck when Bobby Thompson hit the shot heard round the world on August 11, 1951?
You may not have heard the sad news. Bobby Thompson died yesterday. There are no headlines on Drudge. No one is talking about his death. His passing is being ignored. Perhaps nothing provides a greater commentary on how pathetic our society has become, how crude, and how lacking in gentility.
“They’re going crazy, they’re going crazy!” Well, there was no riot. The turf was not pulled up, cars not burned, and store front windows not broken. The Polo Grounds was not destroyed.
