An Island Of Sanity

While much of the rest of the country appears to be going off the deep end, there's at least solace in the return to normalcy in the baseball world as the New York Yankees regained the world championship for the first time in nine years.
On his latest "Radio Derb" audio program, NRO's John Derbyshire commented on the team's accomplishment. He noted that he's been a long time Yankee fan and even once had a cat named "Thurman"*. I'm always (pleasantly) surprised when a transplanted Brit (or any other nationality) becomes enamored of that most American of pastimes.

*For non-aficianados, the late Thurman Munson was a catcher for the Yankees in the 1970s.
