How great would it have been to have stood on the pitcher’s mound, ball in hand, or in the batter’s box in Crosley Field, or Ebbets Field, or Forbes Field, or the Polo Grounds, or Sportsman’s Park in the 1940s and 1950s? Clyde King got to see all of those places – and many more – during his six-plus decades in baseball.

    The baseball was a rock, some twine and black tar tape. Their bat came from a tree limb. The ball glove came from an old leather sofa the boys found sitting by the side of the road. “We got my mother’s scissors that she sewed with and cut some of that leather out. We put some padding in there, I remember it was cotton, and she sewed it up for us and we had gloves.” – Clyde King

    When it comes to cemeteries and monuments, I’ve seen many headstones that have weathered and deteriorated with time, to the point where the names of those in their final resting places have faded away or the stones have crumbled and collapsed. They don’t need detestable jackasses speeding up the process.

    Here is the most important question: If the department is called Rehabilitation and Correction, if it is proven Golsby committed these heinous crimes less than three months after being released, where, pray tell, was the “rehabilitation?”

    Today, I still prefer the old songs, from Buddy Holly, to The Beatles, to The Beach Boys, to The Statler Brothers, to the crooners like Frank, Dean and Bing, to the doo-wop groups and so on and so forth.

    Ladies and gentlemen, a biting breeze blows as the sun sinks from sight on an overcast, wintry day. It is quiet and tranquil in the old Strange Cemetery near Fairview as red-yellow hues paint the western sky.

    One final question. If the “other side” had marched (or rioted) en masse right after the inauguration of President Obama in 2008 to protest and challenge Obama’s plans of “hope” and “change”… Never mind. Question withdrawn.

    “Your life will encounter nothing new; you will be furnished the same materials that countless generations before you have used. But you are a freewill product; will you choose the pleasing, helpful patterns? The bright threads? Will you weave sunshine into the fabric of life? Or will you produce only the cerements of sorrow?"

    Maybe Meryl Streep should have simply heeded Kurt Russell’s words and just thanked everyone who helped her win a lifetime achievement award (including the 60-plus million who don’t hate Donald Trump) and then shut up and sit down.

    I recently recalled and pondered an offering I penned a few years back that lamented how few pro sports players there were that were my age or older. Well, as you might imagine, that list has gotten quite a bit shorter.
