Let Joy be Unrestrained
The Chicago Cubs clinched the NL Central division last night. Their 6-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds, coupled with the pesky Milwaukee Brewers' 6-3 loss against San Diego, put the Cubs into the post-season for the first time since 2003.
And yet the thing I saw yesterday that made me cry was this video of San Diego mayor Jerry Sanders, a former Police Chief and committed Republican, announcing his support of the city council's vote to allow gay marriage.
Would that even a small minority of our politicians in this country be as honest and dedicated to soul-searching as this man. Mr. Sanders, I salute you. Now pass me the Kleenex.
