New Yankee Stadium Built With Steroids?

Sunday, April 19, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The Tribe wins 22 to 4, with the Indians rolling up a “most ever in the history of baseball” 14 runs in the 2nd.

Not able to juice bats or players, Big George may have juiced his new home. One ESPN analyst last night described right field at new Yankee Stadium as a “wind tunnel.” Perhaps the bogus home run numbers of the past decade will be erased by inflated records run up in the House not Built By Ruth.

Finally, A Democrat I Can Vote For

Mark Gearan has been nominated for Harvard University’s Board of Overseers.

Mark is the president of Hobart and William Smith College in New York, and a long time Democratic activist and government official. He served in a number of positions for President Clinton, including the Director of the Peace Corps.

Did I mention he was my roommate for two years at Winthrop House?

Mark has never been right about an election as far as I can recall, and we disagree on most of the issues that divide Democrats and Republicans. But he is an extraordinarily good man and an accomplished college administrator and public servant. He has made HWS a campus that is friendly to speakers from all viewpoints and to serious education. All universities could use such people on their boards, and conservatives could only hope to find such talented and good-humored liberals to serve alongside.

That quote is from Denver Archbishop Charles Chaput’s talk to journalists at a Pew Forum for Religion and Public Life in which he discussed the obligations of journalism professionals to accurately report the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The transcript of the forum is here.

Thanks to John Schroeder of Article VI Blog for pointing me to it, and to the debate over the U.N. resolution condemning the defamation of Islam.
