An Interlude

While I am out of town and today, watching the Cub game via ESPN Game Day (pretty cool, if you don't already know about it), I am reading another Presidential biography, "The Passions of Andrew Jackson" by Andrew Burstein. I've begun doing this -- reading presidential bios (so far, I've got Adams, Truman, T. Roosevelt and Lincoln), in a way to try to understand how these men shaped what our country is today. There's many good lessons from the past, some of which we still haven't learned.

Cubs leading 1-0 already in the top of the first. As my buddy Mike has said in past seasons when the Cubs do well... "Cosmic things are happening." It's early, but you can clearly see how Dusty Baker turns average teams into winners.
