“Say It Ain’t So, Joe” March 29, 2011

Posted by gregquill in Uncategorized.

A young boy grabbed Shoeless Joe Jackson’s sleeve as he left court following the Black Sox baseball fixing scandal of the 1919 World Series. He asked his hero to deny doing wrong, and Joe told him he couldn’t deny it.

This time, injustices are just waiting to take the stage, and I’d like someone to say they just ain’t so:

The Navy board has recommended that Captain Holly Graf, today’s Captain Bligh, be separated under a General Discharge (which I agree with) and retired at a Captain’s pay (which I strongly disagree with). She spat at her subordinates, and threw coffee cups at them because she was a tyrant – and a poor excuse for one to boot.

Libya’s Qaddafi may escape any punishment if he just walks away. I guess it’s good that we have all of those bombs, planes and ammunition over there. Now, all we need is an itchy trigger finger…

Next they’ll probably rehire Gilbert Gottfried as the Aflack duck…
