Priorities -

What do we care about in this country? One might think schools would be a first priority, along with health care. I spoke with a friend this morning who attended a conference this week on health care reform. It seems the dilution continues and we are the laughing stock of the rest of the world because we are fifty years behind other developed countries in providing health care for our citizens. The insurance companies are winning. It only works if we all participate and share the costs.

We seem to continue to forget it is the people that make a country, not the corporations.

Many of us remember attending baseball games as a family.

Did you know that Yankee Stadium has a built-in heating system beneath the field? It is important. It saves the grass, so actually is a cost-saver and it is good for the players too.

Here is a comment on the stadiums in which our sports heroes now play.
