The Odyssey Of Yasiel Puig



The Dodgers’ outfielder has been the focus of several stories about his escape from Cuba and some of the shady characters who supposedly assisted his efforts. Actually, that might be putting it mildly.
Here’s the initial story that created much of the discussion.

Lonnie White: 1964-2014



We met 25 years ago. Didn’t get together as much as we should have, but when we did, we laughed something fierce.
Heartbroken. Lonnie was only 49. The cause of death is unknown at this point but, unfortunately, he had health problems for years. Some days suck more than others, but this 1 delivered 1 stiff punch to the gut.

Racism Is The Bigger Problem


    Just as Greg Howard eloquently writes in his piece about the word “nigger,” there is a bigger issue that American fails to address. But when it comes to using the word “nigger,” is it a generational issue or ignorance? And who has the right to be judge and jury and tell us when, where or if we can use the word?
    For the record, we believe the NFL considering making it a penalty in using the word during a game is totally misguided. It’s almost as bad as some folks who consider themselves politicians (looking at Teddy Cruz) or the thugs who run the Republican Party, reacting to some perceived slight and putting a bandaid on what is obviously a larger problem. But that major problem, a serious discussion about race in America, will never occur in my lifetime. We just look it in the face every day and go about our business. At least some of us do.
