Of course, after the egg they laid last night. HA!
We stopped pretending we would ratify Kyoto. We only spent $15 billion on AIDS in Africa. We did not take dictation from Paris. If we had done these things, it would minimize the world’s anger.
Is the world angry at Russia, which spends nothing on AIDS and rebuffed Kyoto? Is the world angry at China, which got a pass on Kyoto and spends nothing on AIDS for other countries?
Is the world angry at North Korea for killings its people? Angry at Iran for smothering that vibrant nation with corrupt and thuggish mullocracy? Angry at Syria for occupying Lebanon? Angry at Saudi Arabia for its denial of women’s rights? Angry at Russia for corrupt elections? Is the world angry at China for threatening Taiwan, or angry at France for joining the Chinese in joint military exercises that threatened the island on the eve of an election? Is the world angry at Zimbabwe for stealing land and starving people? Is the world angry at Pakistan for selling nuclear secrets? Is the world angry at Libya for having an NBC program?
Is the world angry at the thugs of Fallujah?
Is the world angry at anyone besides America and Israel? - James Lileks

Gammons is from Boston, but I wouldn't accuse him of a pro-Boston bias. His favorite team of the last ten years is very clearly the Yankees, if the praise he heaps on them in his every column is any indication.
Aside from that, he constantly uses the Red Sox to get up on his political soapbox. His latest critique is that Sox ticket prices are taking the game away from its "middle and lower class roots." This is the baseball forum, so I'll leave politics out of it. I wish Gammons would as well.

I agree he lost it along time ago. If the whole Arod to the Sox taught us anything it that Gammons is a joke and can be played as a puppet. He would go on TV and I could almost see Tom Hicks in the background pulling all the stings on Puppet Peter making him say anything he wanted to.
I would agree that Benitez is one of the 200 best closers in the game, including, of course, the Atlantic League. Please tell me you can think of 10-15 closers you would rather have. I can. This hasn't even happened yet and I hate it.
