My Morning in ExileIt's ShysterDaughter's first day of kindergarten today. It's afternoon kindergarten, so I'm going to bust out of here soon to go be that dad who stands at the bus stop taking pictures and holding back tears as my kid rolls her eyes. I'll be back later this afternoon, however. In the meantime:

Yikes, that thread on NBC was vomit-inducing…regardless, I fully agree with you. But not all voters know what true value is…meh.

Your point about language corrupting thought is valid and important. One of the great essays I ever read is George Orwell’s “Politics and the English Language” in which he discusses that issue and more.
But as you imply, and I would emphasize, I don’t think it applies in the case of the Rays. They have one of the most enlightened owners in the sport and one who has demonstrated a commitment to building a contender. Reading the entire set of remarks, it is refreshing to see such an honest response to the questions raised by the Kazmir trade.
And as a fan, I appreciate that the Rays have a clear and intelligent plan to turn over resources in such a way as to keep the pipeline of talent flowing rather than relying on a small window of opportunity and then tearing down the team to start again from scratch.
