5 Things We Know On A Sunday

  1. 660 HR. 1903 RBI. 302 BA. 338 SB. 22 years – 2 MVP’s, 12 Gold Gloves, 24 All-Star Games, 1979 HOF. Willie Mays is the greatest baseball player of all-time. Convince me otherwise.
  2. Lubbock should keep as many of the brick streets as they can downtown. Where it’s not feasible due to costs, keep a strip at each cross-walk area. Decent compromise. Lubbock needs to preserve a little history where it can. If you really want Downtown to redevelop, make it unique. If it’s just like Milwaukee or 98th St., what’s the point?
  3. Top 3 Simon and Garfunkel Songs: No. 3 “America”. No. 2. “Old Friends”. No. 1. “The Boxer”.
  4. Half of one entire aisle at our local supermarket is taken up just by condiments. Tell me again how America is not the greatest country in the world?!
  5. With each passing day, Americans can claim fewer and fewer shared experiences. From our ability to Balkanize ourselves via Social Media and “news” consumption to the basic idea of even watching the same TV programs or listening to the same “pop” music – the commonalities among us dwindle every day. At what point can a nation survive if the citizens of the nation share very little in common beyond lines on a map? I don’t have the answer to that, but I do know that unless we find more to share with each other, and very soon, like in any “family” a divorce is looming.
