Greetings!

Hank Aaron has been in the news a lot in the past few weeks. There was a big front-page story about, and an interview with, Mr. Aaron in USA Today. Hank Aaron is concerned about the number of black baseball players. According to him, Major League Baseball, especially Commissioner Bud Selig, has dropped the ball - no pun intended.

Here's the evidence; percentage-wise, the number of blacks in baseball is at an all-time low. It's been on a steady decline for the past thirty years. What to do? What to do?

Well! Bud Selig has announced a task force, a panel. Its focus will be "on-field diversity." Others, including Mr. Aaron, suggest that more playgrounds (ball fields) be constructed in black neighborhoods. Black kids need a place to practice. One sports talk radio host implied that there's some underlying racism in MLB. My! My! My!

Here's something that Hank Aaron, USA Today, ESPN Radio/Television, editorialists, etc. never talk about - so I will.

Fifty years ago, 93% of the NBA (National Basketball Association) was white. The number of white basketball players has been on a steady decline for the past fifty years and even more so in the past twenty-five years. What a tragedy! It's gotten so bad that only 17% of basketball players are white. What to do? What to do?

Does anyone think David Stern, the NBA commissioner, will announce a task force whose focus will be "on-court diversity?" Does anyone think that more gymnasiums should be constructed in white neighborhoods? White kids need a place to practice, right? Has anyone in the media ever implied that there are too few white guys? My! My! My!

Hank Aaron has too much time on his hands. Of course, I understand that; he's seventy-nine years old, he's retired. Maybe he should take up gardening or golf. On second thought, forget golf. That's a racist sport. Do you realize that among the 156 golfers contending for the U.S. Open Championship, only one is black? NBC sports has said this, "Woods was supposed to open the sport up to black kids in America and around the world. Yet, a decade later, he remains the only black golfer on the tour." My! My! My!

Bud Selig! Well, bless his heart. He's just glad he's not David Stern. Mr. Stern has other fish to fry. He probably reads a lot. Like the book "Out of Bounds: Inside the NBA's Culture of Rape, Violence and Crime," written by investigative reporter Jeff Benedict. It's a fascinating book. Here's a small excerpt: "The NBA is rapidly turning into a national criminals' association. A whopping 40 percent of NBA players have police records."

To me, it's just much ado about nothing, absolutely nothing! Diversity, that is! A frankfurter is a frank, is a wiener, is a weenie. But most of us recognize it as a "hot dog." Diversity is variety, is assortment, is inclusion. But most of us recognize it as bull#&*%."

Until next time,
God bless everybody and God bless America!

Beef Stew for the Brain


Beef Stew for the Brain
, is my best ever. A full hour-and-a-half, including bonus features and extras.

The entire project was filmed in high definition and includes the most requested comedy routine of all time the Fat Woman After Dinner.

We're more excited about this than any in the past. This DVD would not be available if not for my good friends John Boy & Billy on The Big Show.
