From a reader:
Red Sox Nation resigns itself to no tyranny, neither at the batter’s box nor at the polling booth. You might not like the result on the baseball diamond, but the whole nation eagerly awaits it at the polls.
Meanwhile, Yankee fans supinely permit the Senate installation of one touring elite liberal after another, from RFK to Hilary. You’re _sure_ this is a good night to re-assert the Yankees’ traditional superiority? Maybe you’d all be better off with a little less respect for traditional privileges, and a little more determination to resist the bad ones.
