The World Comes Crashing In
Tonight outside of Wrigley Field, members of the U.S. Army, either in fatigues or in "AN ARMY OF ONE" t-shirts, were passing out little American flags to fans coming into the ballpark. Memers of the military, in uniforms, berets, etc. will be at the park all night, throwing out ceremonial first pitches and the like.
Count on me, a skeptic, to think this whole thing is fishy and out of place, but the U.S. Army is a military organization engaging in a quasi-legal armed conflict that many Americans find distasteful.
I wonder if the Cubs would allow members of a peace-oriented organization to pass out flyers on their property, or invite them in to throw ceremonial first pitches. I bloody well don't think so. I find this kind of public relations for governmental policy disgusting, and it has absolutely nothing to do with baseball.
