Our Fearless Leader
Did you see the Yankees dedicate that monument to Steinbrenner? The thing is like eight -feet tall. It reminded me of the type of monuments you see in North Korea, those huge Kim Jong II monuments expressing gratitude to "our fearless leader." The inscription even says George was a "visionary"-a nice dictatorial touch. I half expected the five year grain projections to be flashed on the scoreboard. Maybe baseball fans from small market cities like Kansas City or Pittsburgh will travel to the Bronx, go to Monument Park take their shoes off and throw them at George's eight- foot head.
