     I dedicate this book to Tony Salinn, whose talent and passion for baseball writing will be
                                           remembered.

The Bonfire of the Vanities had a way, like the sports columns of Jim Murray, of shining a light
on the unimpressives of society without naming their names. It left its targets naked in the
streets.

After Bonfire, the world waited with baited breath for Wolfe’s next work, which came in the
form of 1998’s A Man in Full. The critics may not have gotten it. This book did not resonate as
Bonfire had. But it was was a Best Seller. In this reviewer’s humble opinion, A Man in Full, like
Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, is a monumental work that only those smart enough to understand it
. . . understood.

It is the world in which society, the media, the intellectual elite love to create myths, such as the
cutting edge all-knowing black man or family of so many commercials, put-upon while he
calmly explains to the dingbat white the latest in cell phone technology, or smart money
investing, or the latest in technological gadgetry; all apparently beyond the ability of most white
minds to comprehend except for the smart black fellow who steers them in the correct direction.
The kind of message that so many people observe and either say out loud, “Hey, that’s a lie,” or
never think about, but understand this fact in the back of their minds, inculcating their choices in
politics and consumerism.

Wolfe reaches those people who have this nagging suspicion somewhere when they observe the
world around them and say, “Something is wrong here!”

Wolfe has chosen a subject he must surely have known would go over the heads of most except
for . . . the righteous. We get it.

Whether anybody else gets it is . . . immaterial!

BO: AN INSPIRATION

The year was 1973. I was 14, entering Redwood High School near San Francisco. I read Bo:
Pitching and Wooing by Maury Allen. Today, almost 40 years later, this is a book I absolutely
consider to be one of the five best sports books ever written, and the genesis of my own writing
career. What a long, strange trip it’s been.

Between Brad’s tales and Maury’s book I was transplanted to the Whiskey-a-Go-Go, a swank
Sinatra Hollywoodland of gorgeous babves, hot nights, happening night clubs, and exciting
baseball. Everything that made life worth living at that time. For a lonely only-child without a
semblance of a girlfriend, it was a vicarious thrill so . . . thrilling . . . that it in some ways was
almost better than actual real life. Writing cannot be better than that.

KNEW WHAT IIWOULD FIINDWHEN IIGOT THERE..
 KNEW WHAT WOULD F ND WHEN GOT THERE

Fast forward to 1981 when indeed I did sign with the St. Louis Cardinals. Yes, minor league life
was exactly like that panted by Maury Allen, Pat Jordan and Jim Bouton. I lived it to the hilt.
Hedonistic pleasures, girlies in small town Southern bars, fun, fun, fun. No, I was not living
within The Word of Christ. I was a sinner. I was a child who had not yet put away, as Paul wrote
to the Cornthians, “childish things.”

That would come eventually. First, there was Bo Belinksy, the next step.

Aftrer baseball, I graduated from USC, served in the Army, attended law school, and became a
sports agent. I was unfulfilled. It was 1994. Being a sports agent seemed almost like being a
pimp. I spent most of my time arranging for my client, a married Pittsburgh Pirates’ outfielder, to
meet his mistress flown in, by our firm, to various Nationbal League cities. I knew I was not
doing God’s work.

Then Bo Belisnky entered my life, in real life. We started representing him, an old-time player
popular in card shows and the memorabilia market. We made no money off Bo but it was fun to
have him around and hear all his stories.

Bo started bragging about how “Marty and Bobby” and Oliver Stn and this agent and that
producer wanted to make a movie about his life. A light went on in my head.
                                                                                              6
“I shall write the screenplay,” I declared, and I did.

This was basically like stirring up a hornet’s nest, a Hollywood story for a different day. Staying
on point, I contacted Maury Allen and Pat Jordan., Amazingly, both completely cooperated with
me, allowing me to write a screenplay based on their two books about Bo’s life without charging
me, telling me if it ever gets made we would work out the particulars then. Unbelievable.

So I wrote a script called Once He Was an Angel. It was optioned by a producing group
associated with Frank Capra III and Frank Capra Jr., and received kudos in a screenwriting
contest. Maury Povich wanted to make a movie about Bo. But Bo passed away in 2001 and the
movie was never made.

When I wrote Angels Essential (2007), an Angels history, I devoted a large part of the book to
Bo and my experiences. Later Bob Case, the Angels’ clubhouse boy in 1962 and a lifelong friend
of Bo’s and many Angels, told me of all Angels chroniclers, I captured the ambience of the times
better than any other writer. Nice words, but I was only paying homage to Maury Allen and Pat
Jordan.

TO BE OR NOT TO BE PALIN

The problem with Sarah Palin is that the first requirement of her supporters is to defend her
against the putrid unimpressives who dump all over her. This is not necessary with George W.
Bush. With Bush, a muscular Republican argument says he found two hells on Earth, gathered
all the terrorists into a trap he set in these places at a time of his choosing, and once they were
there, killed them. With Ronald Reagan, his stupid detractors are merely irrelevances, tiny men
and feminist pizzants, in the shadow of Cold War triumph greater even than Caesar Augustus’s.

The book is a nice compilation of rural experience, prep basketball, Alaska insight, and actually
strong national philosophy, but I am as well versed and understanding of philosophy and history
as Palin (which is actually a compliment to Palin, modesty aside).

I must add this. I knew little about her when I first saw her introduced as McCain’s running mate
in 2008. For about 10 seconds I was outraged, yelling at the TV, “What a terrible mistake, this
girl, this nobody.” Then she began to speak. I must state unequivocally it all changed in a matter
of seconds. Palin’s stunning good looks were a huge asset to her. She looks older now, beaten
down by Leftist clap-trap, probably burdened by attacks on her family more than herself, but in
2008 she looked like a rogue Vogue model. I’m a guy, what can I say? She looked great and it
mattered. I know history, philosophy, religion, I know this is what matters, not the cut of Sarah’s
gib, but I’m sorry, my attraction to her looks made me dig her as a candidate. Just being honest.

This woman was so attractive that a Hollywood hottie portaying her on Saturday Night Live was
substantially less attrractive than the real thing. A devastating sex goddess spoofed her in an
X-rated film, but the difference in their looks was not all that much different, despite Sarah being
older.

YOU HAVE TO BE MENSA TO GET “ATLAS SHRUGGED”

As a fan of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged who cultivates the opinion of the occasional Randian I
rarely come across, I conclude that real fans of Rand’s Objectivist philosophy and truly “get” her
magnum opus border on genius level intelligence. It takes this kind of intelligence to understand
it, to read its 1,000-plus pages, and realize what in fact she is telling the world.

It was not a low rent picture. The movie captures the wide-open Colorado spaces of the
expanding Taggart railroad. The acting is fine, although the performers are all unknowns. It
details, more or less, what the world will look like if Barack Obama is allowed to stay in office
absent the efforts by Republicans to stop Socialism.

But the theme of smart, creative people (think a modern Bill Gates or Donald Trump) going on
strike, taking their money, businesses and entrepreneurial spirit with them, like a recalcitrant kid
taking his ball and going home, is something that only Randians undserstand. Others look at me
quizzically when I try to explain it. Ultimately, the film will not be a big hit for this reason. Atlas
Shrugged is like inside trading, available only to those club members worthy of understanding it.
What more can I say?

MAYS NOT A BAD GUY,,BUT NO PRINCE,,EITHER
MAYS NOT A BAD GUY BUT NO PRINCE EITHER

I just read Jane Leavy’s great Mickey Mantle biography, The Last Boy. For many reasons I had
to contrast it with an earlier authorized biography, Willie Mays: The Life, the Legend by James
                                                                                              10
Hirsch. Where Leavy’s work was a masterpiece, Hirsch’s book was pedestrian. This leads
me to analyze Mays, his life and his persona in more in-depth manner than, well, Hirsch did.
Hirsch should not be faulted entirely. In getting Willie’s cooperation, he shut off much of the
Mays story; basically, the bad stuff. Leavy was not inhibited by such a thing. Her subject is dead,
and besides, he never hid his numerous faults.

Then there was the time I, a sports columnist for the San Francisco Examiner, approached the
sainted Willie at Pacific Bell Park the night Barry Bonds hit his 500th homer. My theme was to
compare Bonds’s good crowd reception with the way Boston warmed up to Ted Williams after
Korea, New York to Mantle in 1961, and San Francisco to Mays in 1962 (after worshipping at
the altar of the homegrown Joe DiMaggio).

Eventually Willie taught his Godson, Barry Bonds, to blame all his detractors and those who
discovered the facts of his steroid use on racism. Typical (YouTube his

I believed he would be a great President. He had everything at his disposal to achieve this. His
family and background were exemplary. I recall the first time I read his biography, around 1987.
I said, “This man will be President some day.” His father was totally hosed by Ross Perot, but
represented the ultimate class act. Bush’s 2000 election was repudiation of the Left. He was a
complete slayer of liberal dragons; Ann Richards, Al Gore, the legacy of Bill and Hillary.

Bush wrote a biography before running for President, so he created a memoir of his White House
years that focused on his Decision Points. It was an effort to show he was a decider, a leader, a
man of action. A little self-serving, but he was a decider. He made tough decisions, many of
which were forced on him.

Unbroken organically manages to hit all the key elements of great story telling in the most
marketable of manner, which makes it rare. If a publisher were to list all the key points needed to
make a book sell, this one would surely list an X in every box. It is a historical story that reads
like a novel about the greatest event ever, World War II. It centers on a man who is still alive and
able to tell his tale, making it timely. It is a story of Christian redemption, an enormous market
most mainstream publishers seem unable to tap into, for whatever reason. It is a sports story and
a war story with an international angle. Finally, like a good screenplay, it is about the full
character transformation of its main character by virtue of events he confronts; this ultimately is
why it will be a spectacular movie some day.

Lou Zamperini was an Italian-American troublemaker in Southern California. He appeared to be
a “dead end kid” until he discovered he had world-class distance running ability. This changed
his life, provinding him first glory on the fabled track teams of legendary coach Dean Cromwell
at USC, then an Olympic showcase in front of no less a world figure than Adolph Hitler at the
1936 Berlin Games.

Lou was fun-loving with an eye for the ladies and an occasional sip of liquor. Life was a lark.
The Great Depression had little effect on him. Then World War II swept him into its vortex. His
college background slated him for the officer corps and flight school. He finally saw action as a
bombardier, a singularly dangerous assignment. He seemed to dodge the bullets, literally, until
he was shot down. Whoa, Nellie.

An international track star, Zamperini’s disappearance made for big headlines. He was assumed
dead. Perhaps this was the only reason he was not. The Japanese wanted to keep him for
potential propaganda.

Finally the war ended and Lou, along with the other prisoners, was freed. The end. Again. A
great story. But wait, the story only begins, really. At first Lou ate, drank and made merry,
bathed in victory and hedonistic pleasure. Back to Hollywood and girls galore. He married a
beautiful actress and lived happily ever after, for a few months or so, until The Bird and the
experience infiltrated his dreams and his soul. From there, a man-made hell of alcoholism and
despair. He was back in the prison, less hopeful of escape than before.

His marriage was virtually kaput, but his wife tried one last time, dragging an atheistic Lou
Zamperini kicking and screaming to Billy Graham’s famed 1949 Crusade For Christ in
downtown Los Angeles. Complete and total testimony on behalf of the divinity of Jesus
followed. Immediately, miraculously, Lou was healed, his soul restored. Gone with the girlie
mags, the bottles of booze, and the hatred. His marriage and life restored, Lou became a man in
full, but his final act of redemption was to “forgive those who trespass against me,” when he
returned to Japan, forgiving his former captors. The Bird remained hidden, emerging years later
after the interrogators stopped searching for war criminals. Amazingly, he became a wealthy
insurance exec, but never faced up to Lou or any of the others. He died in his sins a few years
back. Perhaps upon meeting his Maker he found salvation through the intercessionary prayers of
Lou Zamperini, who harbored no hatred for anybody.

First we see Mickey Mantle growing up in the poverty of Commerce, Oklahoma, but none of that
really affected him. He was seemingly, like Bud Wilkinson’s Sooners, put on this Earth to refute
John Steinbeck’s Okie notion from The Grapes of Wrath that America and capitalism failed.
Instead, he spit in the eye of Steinbeck, making his work a lie by virtue of pure, unadulterated,
joyous baseball stardom. Mickey was born for greatness. There was no doubt of it. His family,
his friends, his environment may have been desultory, the mines of the windswept Oklahoma
planes making life a daily test of survival for his dad and uncles; all but him, anointed for future
greatness.

Leavy, who wrote a solid Sandy Koufax bio in 2002, is a gifted sportswriter who understands
and captures the New York ambience, a key to so many great stories. She writes a different story.
Mick’s tale is a well-told one. She does not delve into every game, every friend, every big
homer, but rather, like George W. Bush’s Decision Points, concentrates on chosen moments
                                                                                                17
defining Mantle’s life. The title is apropos and does what a great book is supposed to do,
which is transfer the reader from a very different modernity into a time and place that is no more,
no matter the nostalgic attempt to re-live it. It strips much of the veneer, as well, in particular
demonstrating that Mick may have been molested by a female babysitter as a child, perhaps
explaining why he could only be described as a sex addict.

         It is on the face of it the story of a great private school rowing squad that once won the
 most prestigious championship outside of the Olympics, This is a mere façade, for it is in fact a
 gauzy, melancholy story of how in life sometimes we are privileged to be part of something
 astounding. The beauty of the story, really, is that it is not something wholly unusual. Every year
 various teams win championships, and Rinehart’s team was not really any more unusual than any
 number of these champions. The beauty is that in being a story that could be repeated in a
 thousand places, it speaks to the universal human spirit. One need not be a rower, attend a New
 England private school, or done much of anything particularly resembling what Rinehart did, in
 order to relate to it. Personally it brought back vivid, haunting memories of my own membership
 on the best high school baseball team in America in 1977. We were a public school, our story
 embued by a sunny California disposition a world removed from East Coast eltism, but that did
 not matter. My teammates, our camaraderie, our demanding coach, and the thrill of victory; that
 was the same.

         Rinehart infuses us with history and back story. He does an excellent job of telling us the
 history of rowing, its equipment and accoutrement, without making it read like an encyclopedia.
 He tells us of Father Frederick Herbert Sill, the founder and soul of Kent School. Of such men
 are countries made great. Sill, a man of Christian faith, may well be regarded as a saint. His story
 has been told before; the beloved school master, the patriarch who presides over decades of
 graduating classes at a charming private school. The fact that there are many Father Sills who
                                                                                                18
 have influenced the lives of countless young people does not reduce Sills, or any other
 Father Silles of this world, one iota. These are unsung heroes. These are men of temperance and
 character, the sort of indiviuduals who an atheist meets and, if he is honest with himself, leads
 one to God. Certainly he is the sort of man who seemingly (with the exception of sports coaches)
 have this type of effect only at private schools. Perhaps this is unfair to hard-working public
 school teachers, but few Father Sillses are found in those bureaucracies.

       His parent tried to negotiate how much they would pay in tuition as did many of the
middle class Kent parents, but were told this sprt of dispensation was not made for their kind.
The Kent administration assumed they were publishing scions of wealth and privilege, saddling
Mr. Rinehart with paying the “full boat.” Mr. Rinehart did not try to argue that, well, yes, the
family had some imprimatur, but he was a drinking man who was not published. He just smiled,
swallowed hard, and wrote the check like the gentleman he saw himself as.

         The Rineharts were like so many fashionsible Manhattanites a John Kennedy family, but
the survival in the Rockys, the competition of rowing, and his communion with nature, affected
Rinehart’s work ethic-based political views and, more important, his lifelong love affair with the
Lord Jesus Christ.
         Finally, in the spring of his last year at Kent School, the time had come for the author and
his teammates, who watched while skilled older rowers lived up to the tradition of Kent, setting
the bar high for them. Under Coach Perry, they entered the rowing season believing they could
be special. Competition after competition only convinced them they might be a team of destiny,
and it is important to note that they did not merely row against local high school squads. They
competed against Ivy League schools and programs from other states, like two public schools in
Virginia considered among the nation’s best. In many cases they were, of course, high school age
kids beating college boys, again drawing the comparison of De La Salle knocking off Ohio State,
or Maryland De Matha beating the University of Maryland in hoops.
         They won and won and won, eventually capturing the national title, earning them a trip to
England to compete for the Princess Elizabeth Cup in the fabled Henley Royal Regatta, scene of
two Summer Olympics (London, 1908 and 1948), quite simply the Mecca of rowing, to its sport
what Wimbledon is to tennis, Augusta to golf . . . all by high school boys competing in large
measure against grown men, many in their 20s!
         Think of the “miracle on ice,” Chariots of Fire and Hoosiers rolled into one. They were a
team, of destiny, capturing the cup in a series of astonishing victories. Rinehart tells us several of
his teammates went on to success in college, but none rowed in the 1976 Montreal Olympics.
They were talents, but what apparently propelled this particular team to heights not accomplished
by groups of comparable ability was a magic quality of coordination and team chemistry, of
which greatness is born. So it was as they won the 1972 Princess Elizabeth Cup in a competition
televized nationally in Great Britain, announced by Grave Kelly’s father, Kelly Kelly (one of the
great rowers in history), earning for them a letter from President Nixon.

THE POWERS THAT BE

Wow. The Powers That Be by David Halberstam, written after some seven years of research, in
1979, is the quinetessiantal big book . . . the big American book! It is a masterpiece, a triumph, a
work, a magnum opus by a superstar of the genre. I do not stand eye-to-eye with Halberstam
politically. I am a staunch conservative, he was center-liberal, but unlike so many nabobs of the
left, in Halberstam’s case his sheer knowledge, his education, his talent, passion, and the
undisputable fact that he was there . . . he saw it happen, he experienced it; well, whether one
agrees or disgrees with his politics or not, only a fool would argue his merits, his imprimatur.
         Is Halberstam our greatest 20th Century chronicler? The best writer? This is hard to say.
 He was a historuan, a reporter, so comparing him with Ernest Hemingway, or Eugene O’Neill, or
 sports writers like Jim Murray, is problematic. He is different from a Tom Wolfe, whose
 non-narrative written-in-novel style, like Norman Mailer penning a true story, is also different,
 yet Halberstam’s books are not, as in the case of, say Bob Woodward, not unlike a 300-page
 Washington Post report. He is engaging, forceful, entertaining.

        Halberstam’s 745-page classic describes the histories of Time under Luce, the Columbia
Broadcasting System under William Paley, the Washington Post under Phil and Katharine
Graham, the Los Angeles Times unders the Chandlers, and while not headlined on the book’s
cover, the New York Times. It is a story of the media in the media age. He outlines the shaping of
Los Angeles under the Chandlers from the 19th Century on, and in the case of the other empires,
 after World War I, when they were either consolidated, bought or created, as in the case of Luce
 and Paley out of a sheer American vision.

         Perhaps Luce’s role is the most extraordinary. While the Chandlers were almost
 accidental king-makers, separated by geography from the action, they were happy to invent
 Southern California in their own WASP image. But the building of Richard Nixon, as like
 Frankenstein, thrust them into the new age. Otis Chandler responded by re-making his paper
 from a Republican rag to the world’s greatest. But Luce was not accidential. He was a Calvinistic
 force of destiny and knew it. He was convinced he was a prophet of God. He coined the term
 “American Century,” laughed at first as provincial, but after World War II the most apropos of
 experessions.

         But the book’s theme, or argument, where one falls in the political litany, can be summed
 up by response to an argument between Luce and his star reporter, Theodore White after World
 War II. Luce made China his special project. White’s writings about Chiang Kai-shek, Mao
 Tse-tung and the Nationalist-Communist civil war were brilliant, but he started to report that
 Chiang was corrupt, his leadership poor, his military ineffective, while Mao, to Luce’s horror,
                                                                                                  23
 was making gains.
          Luce flew out to China on several occasions, to “straighten out’ White. They finally had a
 confrontation in which White told his boss his commitment was to honest journalism. Luce said
 no, the stakes were too high. A little propaganda, not the word he used but what he felt was
 needed, as in the battle with Adolf Hitler, was what was needed. To lose China was too horrible
 to contemplate and could not be risked by honest journalism.
          All normal coinsiderations woul seem to favor White in this argument. The truth, after
 all, shall set ye free. In the end, White got his way. He wrote it his way, then detailed it in a book
 called Thunder Out of China. It dismayed Luce, but he was too honest and decent to censor his
 people. Righteounses prevailed, right?
          Not so fact. China was lost to Communism in 1949, causing enormous political hatred
 and more than any factor McCarthyism. Mao murdered 55 million human beings. Communism
 killed 100 million worldwide in the century. In light of that knowledge, if it was at all possible
 Luce could have kept Chiang and his army together enough, through American popular support,
 to stop such a thing fron happening; well, was this not worth just a little bit of jingoistic
 propaganda?

        But even the Reagan Adminsitration’s lackluster efforts to take Playboy out of 7-11s was
met by a howl of protest. Ultimately Reagan could not protect us from sin. Only God can. We
can pray and meditate, but only of our own free will, and asking God to perform miracles in our
lives, can we hope to turn from our sins. His will be done.

Thus was born revolution. In America, a revolution not based on Rouseau’s thesis but on the
rugged, individualistic relationship of man with God, but in Europe a philosophy based on the
idea that “huddled masses” were incapable of taking care of themselves unless the government
did it for them.

Throughout the 19th Century, as Alexis de Tocqueville pointed out, the American philosophy
was winning, but in the 20th Century two world wars, while won by the U.S., making us an
empire stronger and more powerful than all previous political entities, the European model took
root.

Reaction to Islamic Jihadism, the realism that”global warning” is a hoax, and the steady
understanding that European Socialism is a failed model has led to riots in the streets among
citizens who cannot be taken care of by governments following the Rousseau model anymore.
From one end of the globe to another, right-leaning govermnments are winning in Great Britain,
Germany, France, soon to be Australia, and most everywhere else.

The American Tea Party Movement is the most powerful political entity seen in decades,
probably in more than a century or even two centuries. It is impervious to attempts to discredit it
because it simply emanates from People Power, the single unstoppable, inexorable force which,
like Christianity, cannot be stopped because it simply places forth Truth.

The result will be Republican mid-term victories in November unseen in the lifetim of a single
living American citizen. In two years, Barack Obama will be repudiated as thoroughly as any
political fiugure ever has. Thus will the age of revolution be over and Conservatism: the winner
of history will begin. A new age for the next millenium.

God bless America. The Truth shall set ye free.

THE SAVAGE EFFECT

Michael Savage is a conundrum. Michael Savage is both a trend and uniquely different. Michael
Savage both represents the success of modern conservatism, and is in an odd way responsible for
the unbridgeable divide between left and right. Michael Savage is America.

He rose during the giddy period 1994-95, when conservatives believed – incorrectly, as it turned
out – that America had adopted Reaganism wholesale and only needed a dose of Bill Clinton to
realize it.

The succeeding years were a mixed bag. Indeed, Reagan had changed the landscape and the
Republican Party with it, but there was too much hubris to the notion that the entire country
simply “saw the light.” We are a center-right nation, not a right-wing one.

Herein is the rub of the thing, because the difference between Savage and the others symbolizes
the differences between mainstream Republicanism and true conservatism, or more obviously for
the moment, the Tea Party movement. Savage is Everyman, the American from the East who
journeyed west to re-invent himself, the conservative who thrives in and amidst the liberalism of
Marin County-San Francisco, the deeply religious Bible reader who tells millions of people on
the air of his occasional crisis of faith.

The stereotype of the right is Southern Man, the post-George Wallace, Lynyrd Skynyrd-Toby
Keith militarist who drops to his knees in prayer to Jesus Christ and enthusiastically endorses the
death penalty. This man is real and is indeed a voting bloc, but alone he will not transform the
Republican Party to anything close to the permanent majority Karl Rove thought was within his
grasp if only George Bush was right when he declared aboard that aircraft carrier the mission
was accomplished.

In order to win big and win consistently, we need a larger swath, and herein do we find Savage.
Just as the Tea Party often emanates from disenfranchised Americans surrounded by leftists they
cannot stand, so too does Savage. Unlike Limbaugh, who lives in a limousine-and-country-club
world, Savage walks the streets of San Francisco like Sam Spade. He eats in its restaurants, hikes
its trails, sails its waters, drinks in its pubs. No doubt he is recognized and often not in pleasant
manner, but he is tough, resilient, and lives for the cut and thrust of it. So too with the Tea
Partiers. They gather in big cities surrounded by Democrats and declare themselves. “Here I
am,” they say, “deal with me.” So too does Dr. Savage.

Savage has an unusual audience. It is not the normal conservative crowd. He gathers people like
Ted Williams once did, regular guys; cabbies, firemen, soldiers, cops, New Yorkers who recall
halcyon days of long gone. Once an ex-Mafioso called his show and kept the audience rapt for an
hour with stories of Mob “honor” in radio so fascinating as to be beyond belief. This is just one
example of why Savage’s program is the single most interesting in the world.

But it proves more than that. The left wishes to place forth the fiction that conservatives are a bit
on the dull-minded side. Yet Savage manifestly dispels this notion daily. Here is a man who has
a Ph.D., who speaks with total authority of child nutrition, botany, Socrates, Shakespeare, the
Old and New Testaments, global strategic thinking (how Vietnam was really a Pyrrhic victory
ultimately costing the Communists the Cold War), 200-year movements (like the Chinese who
say it is too early to analyze the effects of the French Revolution), Renaissance art, classical
music, and a million other intellectual pursuits. Somehow, he is able to speak of these things
while the minds’ eye pictures him regaling not a class of Manhattan socialites, but truck drivers
at a local dive called the Silver Peso, who have been secretly listening to Mozart during the long
haul from Frisco to Salt Lake for years.

Again, the power of conservative talk radio. It has the same effect as the Hiss conviction,
Clinton’s Impeachment. As different as the disparate talk hosts all are, they collectively have this
in common: they are right in defending the Constitution, extolling American Exceptionalism, and
exposing the left as anywhere from incompetent to un-patriotic. They are in a business where if
they lied, their lies and personal failings would be blown up beyond all proportion, their careers
ruined. Each is exposed to scurrilous personal attacks. They have all survived because, as Jesus
Christ says, “The Truth shall set ye free.” Sometimes they exaggerate, sometimes they
propagandize (Savage even extols the virtue of propaganda, as in the case of Hollywood’s Why
We Fight documentaries of World War II), and sometimes they make mistakes, but by and large
for three hours a day five days a week and more they are right on the money. Each in his
different way, no one more so than Savage, the odd one out who loves it that way.

       On Tuesday Republican Scott Brown defeated Democrat Martha Coakley for “Ted
 Kennedy's Senate seat” in the “Boston Massacre,” winning by six points. What we are seeing is a
 conservative revolution. It is an astounding event. In 1994 the Republicans pulled off a similar
 political tsunami. This will make 1994 look like a mere blip on the radar screen. The Democrat
 Party may not survive what is about to occur.
       First and foremost we are seeing what will be, by the end of 2010, the complete and total
 American:

o     Repudiation of the incompetent “Ears” Obama.
o     Repudiation of the immoral Kennedys.
o     Repudiation of the impeached Clintons.
o     Repudiation of the hooligans Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer and Harry Reid.
o     Repudiation of the illegal ACORN, the “black hand” of the Nazi-collaborating George
Soros, the absurdity of MoveOn.org, the lies of Michael Moore, and the stupidity of Code Pink.
o     Repudiation of the militant politics of Jeremiah Wright, William Ayers, “black liberation
theology,” and the legacy of the 1960s counter-culture.
o     Repudiation of the unpatriotic works of Hollywood, the “lame stream” media, the “blame
America first” crowd now indoctrinating our young from grade school to graduate school, and
the unimpressives who make up the Left.
o     Repudiation of the “global warming” mythologists and the socialized health care ram
rodders.
o     Repudiation of the displaced Communists who, since the fall of the Berlin Wall, have
found a home in the international Left and made Acorn Man their poster child.
o     Repudiation of Socialism in America!

A year ago, many worried that the criminal Obama was the anti-Christ. Biblical scholars
generally conclude that such a creature is merely a malevolent spirit, and that the concept of
Satan coming to fruition as a political or military leader is more a Hollywood construct. Brother
Harold Camping is a Biblical scholar operating on a worldwide network called Family Radio. He
says Christ will return on May 21, 2011, but offers no worry that our President is the Dark
Prince.
     For one thing, one might surmise that Satan would be a helluva lot smarter than the
bumbling, stumbling Dumbo man with his stilted phrases, his incoherent speech in a lame
attempt to “help” Coakley, and his unimpressive arguments on behalf of most everything he
advocates.
     In Massachussetts, Coakley trailed Brown by four points. Obama showed up and made a
speech for her. Immediately afterward she trailed by seven en route to desultoriness. The
“Obama effect” was the same in New Jersey and Virginia. It was not unlike previous efforts by
Bill Clinton to “help” candidates who lost four or five points courtesy of his appearances on their
                                                                                              30
“behalf,” or the infamous John Kerry. He trailed by a couple points before the 2004
Democrat National Convention. After America got a closer look at what the creatures of the Left
were, they decided they should trail by five.
      For Obama, as with other Democrat “heroes,” it has come down to an almost mathematical
formula, and it works like this.
      One observes Obama.
      One sees what he does.
      One thinks about it.
      One uses his God-given common sense in analyzing what he sees.
      Therefore, consequently, and as a result thereof, the fact that Obama and the Democrats are
loathsome and atrocious simply emanates itself as manifest truth, knowledge of which is
possessed by millions and millions of patriotic American citizens. Nobody needs to argue it, spin
it or try to make anybody understand it. It simply exists as self-evident fact, which of course is
always the best kind. (To put it more succinctly, to know Obama is to despise him.)
      Bill Ayers is the unrepentant terrorist who tried to bomb the Pentagon, kill police officers,
and was rewarded by the Left with university tenure. He is Dumbo's close friend. He hosted his
political debut, served on boards with him, and is rumored to have ghostwritten his
autobiography. He served the Dumbellionite Obama in his ascendancy as closely as Karl Rove
was the architect of George W. Bush's early career in Texas, but Obama somehow thinks he can
persuade us that, like Christ's apostles on the day of the crucifixion, “I do not know that man.”
Except the Acorn man does it in that dumb sing-song voice of his: “He's a guuuuuyyy who lives
in my neighborhood,” which is like the Kennedys saying their bootlegging, Nazi-sympathizing
father, “Old Man Joe” was “Just, uh, a guy who, uh, lives, uh, in the neighborhood.”
      Of course Obama “heard no evil” for 20 years while his pastor was telling a raucous,
approving black crowd consisting of his and Ayers' Chicago neighbors that America is not
blessed, but rather damned by Almighty God. One supposes Obama's most convincing argument
that he disagreed with Reverend Wright might be that he does not believe an actual God exists to
damn America, and attended the church as an act of political survival. It's the “Chicago Way.”
As for his wife, America ending slavery on Earth or defeating the greatest armies ever assembled
in two world wars are not to be admired. Only her husband's anointing is.
      Dumbo still has a dwindling group of supporters in the media. They call him articulate.
Who are they fooling? Hearing the ignoramuses call Obama “articulate” is a joke. He is neither
articulate nor particularly smart. Bill Clinton was both. He rescued his Presidency by working
with Republicans after the 1994 GOP sweeps. He adopted Republican economic policies and, as
if by statistical formula, the economy revived. The guess hear is that Obama and his hard Left
fellow travelers are too stubborn, proud and yes, too stupid to learn this lesson. They will go
down with their ship, and the Democrat Party may well sink into oblivion forever. This seems
incredible to imagine, but movements do happen that fast. The 1960s are over, baby!
      Meanwhile, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is called “dumb.” One listens to her speak
of a “fallen world,” of man's true relationship with God, and why the Founding Fathers favored
limited government because they recognized the inherent corruption of men's souls, and one
hears articulation so far and above the yap-yap-yap of the “man” who never stops talking, or
getting face time on TV, or showing up at every soiree in which he can honor himself; well,
Palin runs circles around Acorn Man six days of the week and twice on Sunday. We are led to
believe that the Ivy League elites are so much better educated, yet has anyone noticed that one
                                                                                              31
can attend Harvard and graduate hardly without attending class these days? Everything is
on-line there and most everyplace else.
      So the angry conservative Right is making a lot of noise, on Fox News, on talk radio, and at
the “Tea Parties.” After what the Democrats did to President Bush for eight years, they should
simply lack eligibility to complain about ANYTHING! The only thing they should have a right
to do after their years of foul lies and perfidy is to SIT THERE AND TAKE IT. To say nothing!
It is only the common decency that marks conservative people that prevents them from repeating
the foul epithets that the Left vomited upon the public square for years.
      Of course this does not stop them from besmirching the “tea baggers” with disgusting
comments that more resemble their own “tea bagging,” which in Leftist circles is not a love of
the Constitution, but love for a homosexual act too abominable to describe, that they apparently
are far too intimately knowledgeable about.
      The hooligan Pelosi says the “tea baggers” are not a “grass roots” movement, but rather
“Astro turf.” Yeah, sure it is. Just like Hillary Clinton's “vast Right-wing conspiracy” consisted
of millions of patriotic American citizens who had the temerity to register and vote Republican!
Call it what you will - “tea baggers” or “vast Right-wing conspiracy” - but this enormous “silent
majority” of the American citizenry is about to shock the world.
      On the heels of the New Jersey and Virginia Governor's elections, and the Massachusetts
Senate victory, these people are at the very beginning of a campaign season that will see the
following:

o    Harry “the war is lost” Reid's swift deportation to a southern Nevada strip mine town.
o    The hooligan Boxer's swift deportation to a Sausalito hippy commune.
o    The Republican's taking control of the House and Senate, and
o    The criminal Obama's swift 2012 deportation to the neighborhood he shares with Bill
Ayers, perhaps a job as “community organizer” of a Chicago thug group, or maybe a vacation to
Mecca.

Remember New York Congressional District 23? Somehow, after losing enormous statewide
elections in two pivotal races, the Democrats wanted you to believe the fiction that “winning” a
tiny district bordering Canada was the news of the November elections. Here is the real news.
That district will hold another election in November, and the conservative Dan Huffman will win
the Republican primary and then beat Bill Owens.
      Boxer's old Congressional seat is in liberal Marin County. It is as safe a Democrat seat as
there is, but guess what? The Republicans are about to unveil an actual great candidate, and in
this climate, he may win. The anti-American Lynn Woolsey will at least have to defend her
territory, and this will be part of the nationwide story come November. It will be one of the most
enjoyable, energizing political years in Republican history, and it will presage an even better one
in 2012.
      And another thing . . . Obama's old Illinois Senate seat, sold by Democrat Governor Rod
Blagojevich, and never actually “won” by Obama (he used an illegal court ruling to steal it from
Jack Ryan in 2004), will be in Republican hands come November. In other words, the
quintessential repudiation of a man and his thug politics, known as the “Chicago way” in his
so-called “home” state.
      Who could possibly have predicted one year ago that the criminal Obama would be the
                                                                                             32
greatest gift the Republican Party has had bestowed upon it in many a year? Who could have
foreseen that the death of the immoral swimming champion Kennedy would be the death knell of
his most cherished policy, health care? All of this is happening without any true Republican or
even conservative leaders yet emerging. The Left will place forth the lie that this means the
Right is rudderless. In truth it is the Left's worst nightmare, since the conservative ascendancy
depends not on a single man, not on any “cult of personality,” but on the rising tide of an
electrified populace. As anybody who knows anything about history understands, nothing on the
face of this Earth is more unstoppable.
     Oh, the delicious irony of it all. To watch former Vice-President Richard Cheney
disseminating the truth about Obama's dithering, his failures and incompetency, each barb
smacking the Democrats who blasted him for so long like, like . . . like “tea bags” across their
wimpy faces.
     Or to see Karl Rove exact revenge on his detractors every day with words of truth and
wisdom in the Wall Street Journal and on Fox News. Or to see Governor Palin elevated to “rock
star” status, her book selling in such extraordinary numbers as to be beyond mere phenomenon.
     The daily exposition of criminality on the part of the ACLU, ACORN and the corrupt
Democrat machines, the history of which goes back to the Confederacy, Tammany Hall, Kansas
City's Pendergast machine, Clinton's Arkansas “mafia,” Jim Crow, and the total destruction of
virtually every urban center in America, brings the widest possible smiles to the faces of honest
Republicans from coast-to-coast.
     At the heart of this ascendancy has been a conservative media that simply wins in the great
marketplace of ideas. Fox News ate up the ratings like a hungry lion. They featured
conservatives like Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck, day-by-day dismantling the
Obama myth. The “lame stream” media that makes up the New York Times, the Washington
Post, Time, the now-defunct Newsweek, and news programs on CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, and
MSNBC, all watched and read by nobody, not to mention the zero-ratings Air America; all these
outlets of venom and incompetence are failing in one way or another. They want you to believe it
is because of the Obama economy, or the Internet, but these business factors do not have an
effect on successful operations like the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Times, Human
Events, the Weekly Standard and Newsmax. Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and a host of
lesser lights simply wallow in their own rhetorical feces.
     Michael Moore makes two hours of celluloid garbage and the Left wants to trumpet it as a
widespread and “compelling.” It finished behind Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. The first moment
many Republicans knew George W. Bush would win in 2004 was when they saw Fahrenheit
9/11. The day after that victory was attained in record numbers a billboard went up on Sunset
Boulevard in Hollywood, depicting Moore and the other Hollywood unimpressives. It thanked
them for their “help” in delivering victory to Bush and his party.
     None of this stopped Hollywood from making lying movies like In the Valley of Elah,
Rendition and Lions For Lambs. None did business, but movies with a Christian, conservative
message, like The Blind Side and Gran Torino, did. So did the patriotic Charlie Wilson's War.
Finally they made an Iraq War movie that, while not pro-Bush, was at least fair and realistic. The
Hurt Locker, unlike the liberal trash, did well.
     The conservatives behind radio microphones are simply having a field day destroying
Obama. Michael Savage, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, G. Gordon Liddy and a
host of others are at the apex of their power and influence. Amazingly, the only time listeners
                                                                                        33
actually hear the things said by the Dumbellionites of MSNBC, CNN and the like are when
Limbaugh or Hannity replay their stupidities on their shows. It is almost a kind of free
advertising.

           Repudiation of the unpatriotic works of Hollywood, the “lame stream” media,

Repudiation of the “global warming” mythologists and the socialized health care ram rodders.
Repudiation of the displaced Communists who, since the fall of the Berlin Wall, have found a

Repudiation of Socialism in America!

A year ago, many worried that the criminal Obama was the anti-Christ. Biblical scholars
generally conclude that such a creature is merely a malevolent spirit, and that the concept of
Satan coming to fruition as a political or military leader is more a Hollywood construct. Brother
Harold Camping is a Biblical scholar operating on a worldwide network called Family Radio. He
says Christ will return on May 21, 2011, but offers no worry that our President is the Dark
Prince.
         For one thing, one might surmise that Satan would be a helluva lot smarter than the
bumbling, stumbling Dumbo man with his stilted phrases, his incoherent speech in a lame
attempt to “help” Coakley, and his unimpressive arguments on behalf of most everything he
advocates.
         In Massachussetts, Coakley trailed Brown by four points. Obama showed up and made a
speech for her. Immediately afterward she trailed by seven en route to desultoriness. The
“Obama effect” was the same in New Jersey and Virginia. It was not unlike previous efforts by
Bill Clinton to “help” candidates who lost four or five points courtesy of his appearances on their
“behalf,” or the infamous John Kerry. He trailed by a couple points before the 2004 Democrat
National Convention. After America got a closer look at what the creatures of the Left were, they
decided they should trail by five.
         For Obama, as with other Democrat “heroes,” it has come down to an almost
mathematical formula, and it works like this.
         One observes Obama.
         One sees what he does.
         One thinks about it.
         One uses his God-given common sense in analyzing what he sees.
         Therefore, consequently, and as a result thereof, the fact that Obama and the Democrats
are loathsome and atrocious simply emanates itself as manifest truth, knowledge of which is
possessed by millions and millions of patriotic American citizens. Nobody needs to argue it, spin
it or try to make anybody understand it. It simply exists as self-evident fact, which of course is
always the best kind. (To put it more succinctly, to know Obama is to despise him.)
         Bill Ayers is the unrepentant terrorist who tried to bomb the Pentagon, kill police
officers, and was rewarded by the Left with university tenure. He is Dumbo’s close friend. He
hosted his political debut, served on boards with him, and is rumored to have ghostwritten his
autobiography. He served the Dumbellionite Obama in his ascendancy as closely as Karl Rove
was the architect of George W. Bush’s early career in Texas, but Obama somehow thinks he can
persuade us that, like Christ’s apostles on the day of the crucifixion, “I do not know that man.”
Except the Acorn man does it in that dumb sing-song voice of his: “He’s a guuuuuyyy who lives
in my neighborhood,” which is like the Kennedys saying their bootlegging, Nazi-sympathizing
father, “Old Man Joe” was “Just, uh, a guy who, uh, lives, uh, in the neighborhood.”
                                                                                               39

          So the angry conservative Right is making a lot of noise, on Fox News, on talk radio, and
 at the “Tea Parties.” After what the Democrats did to President Bush for eight years, they should
 simply lack eligibility to complain about ANYTHING! The only thing they should have a right
 to do after their years of foul lies and perfidy is to SIT THERE AND TAKE IT. To say nothing!
 It is only the common decency that marks conservative people that prevents them from repeating
 the foul epithets that the Left vomited upon the public square for years.

 Blagojevich, and never actually “won” by Obama (he used an illegal court ruling to steal it from
 Jack Ryan in 2004), will be in Republican hands come November. In other words, the
 quintessential repudiation of a man and his thug politics, known as the “Chicago way” in his
 so-called “home” state.

NUMBERS AS TO BE BEYOND MERE PHENOMENON
         The daily exposition of criminality on the part of the ACLU, ACORN and the corrupt
Democrat machines, the history of which goes back to the Confederacy, Tammany Hall, Kansas
City’s Pendergast machine, Clinton’s Arkansas “mafia,” Jim Crow, and the total destruction of
virtually every urban center in America, brings the widest possible smiles to the faces of honest
Republicans from coast-to-coast.
         At the heart of this ascendancy has been a conservative media that simply wins in the
great marketplace of ideas. Fox News ate up the ratings like a hungry lion. They featured
conservatives like Ann Coulter, Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck, day-by-day dismantling the
Obama myth. The “lame stream” media that makes up the New York Times, the Washington
Post, Time, the now-defunct Newsweek, and news programs on CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, and
MSNBC, all watched and read by nobody, not to mention the zero-ratings Air America; all these
outlets of venom and incompetence are failing in one way or another. They want you to believe it
is because of the Obama economy, or the Internet, but these business factors do not have an
effect on successful operations like the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Times, Human
Events, the Weekly Standard and Newsmax. Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and a host of
lesser lights simply wallow in their own rhetorical feces.

         None of this stopped Hollywood from making lying movies like In the Valley of Elah,
Rendition and Lions For Lambs. None did business, but movies with a Christian, conservative
message, like The Blind Side and Gran Torino, did. So did the patriotic Charlie Wilson’s War.
Finally they made an Iraq War movie that, while not pro-Bush, was at least fair and realistic. The
Hurt Locker, unlike the liberal trash, did well.

         religious event. He was utterly popular, the Republicans completely beaten, and
         conservativism declared to be dead. Stories of his “muscularity” (despite his skinny
         little body) and the “work out regimen” that produced wife Michelle’s “sinewy arms”
         were breathlessly written. (Remember those stupid cartoons caricaturing Bush with
         huge ears? That is actually what the goofy-lookin’ Obama looks like in real life.)

        The Obama Administration warned that swine flue would be an epidemic. It was a
         ploy to convince people that, without socialized medicine, we were doomed to a
         medical disaster. Non of it ever came close to happening.
                                                                                             44
In November a homegrown Islamic Jihadist killed 13 soldiers, but Obama refused to call
him a terrorist. It was an act of terror committed under his watch that Bush had prevented.
America noticed.
Obama failed to follow the advice of his military advisors in Afghanistan and ordered halfway
measures putting more American boys in harm’s way.
Obama made a speech at West Point. The soldiers were falling asleep, and liberal commentator
Chris Mathews called the U.S. Military Academy “enemy territory” for Obama. Millions of
patriotic American citizens, uh . . . made note of this.
While Democrats consider great young people in the military to be the “enemy,” Obama bonded
with anti-American Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez. Communist genocidalist Fidel Castro
expressed great admiration for Obama. These are not people you want to have as your friends,
but the Democrats have always been the preferred party of criminals, anti-Americans,
pornographers (Larry Flynt did their PR work for free) and Communists (one American returned
from living in North Korea after 40 years in 1996 “to vote for Bill Clinton.”)
Obama failed to attend ceremonies for D-Day, the fall of the Berlin Wall or Pearl Harbor,
preferring instead trips to places like Copenhagen to honor himself. Instead of watching the
returns when Democrats got killed in the November elections, he was glued to a documentary
about his “greatness.”
In December a “global warming summit” failed despite Obama’s plea to achieve “something.”
This on the heels of evidence the Left covered “global warming’s” apparent lack of existence,
which of course comes on the top of anecdotal knowledge by humans living on the planet that it
lacks existence upon the crust of the Earth.
Despite reams of evidence, Obama’s government failed to stop a terrorist bomber from trying to
blow up a plane. The reason? Political Correctness. Again, it was the kind of act Bush prevented
but Obama did not, but luckily the bomb did not detonate.
In January a huge earthquake hit Haiti. Obama’s response was less impressive than Bush’s
during Hurricane Katrina.
The Democrats attempted to ramrod socialized medicine on an American public that opposes it,
70-30. They attempted to bribe and buy votes, breaking numerous ethical laws. They tried to
sneak everything past the public in the dark of night. Obama’s campaign promise of
transparency, of televizsed hearings on C-SPAN, was revelaed instead to be a lie.
Obama’s approval ratings head towards 40 percent, the fastest drop in the quickest amount of
time in the history of polling. At this rate, he will be around 30 percent when voters go to the
polls in November.
As if by divine intervention, Kennedy’s death and Brown’s victory stops socialized medicine and
harbingers Democrat disaster. America made mental note of this.

History also provides a guide to what is happening. Obama is swimming upstream anyway in
that a first-year President usually loses in Congress, but the facts of the past 50 years are more
starkly against him. The last time the Democrats sustained a series of electoral successes was the
John Kennedy-Lyndon Johnson succession of 1960-64. In 1966 the Republicans swept to victory
and continued this winning streak, culminating with Richard Nixon’s 49-state sweep of 1972.
Only the blip of Watergate saved the Democrats from the oblivion they will be facing in this
decade.
         In 1976 they thought they were the “winners of history” with Jimmy Carter and the
                                                                                              45
Congress winning, but in 1978 California’s Proposition 13 portended a 14-year GOP run
encompassing Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush until 1992. Clinton’s 1992 sweeps
resembled Obama’s in 2008. His 1994 repudiation resembled the current repudiation. The GOP
succeeded in Congress and eventually the White House until 2006. The Democrats have never
shown any staying power when it comes to electoral results, and there is zero evidence they are
about to.
        Perhaps Brother Camping is right and the Lord will indeed return on May 21, 2011. If so,
none of this will much matter, and one could argue that in the larger scheme of things, Obama’s
failure matters none compared with the issue of Rapture and Salvation. However, there are many
of us who think God indeed did shed His grace on thee; that he created and blessed this beautiful
nation so that freedom and, ultimately, the chance to hear His word and be saved, could be made
available to the largest number of the planet’s population. As it says in Revelations, in the Final
Days the saved shall be a figure “no man can number.” If so, then perhaps the Good Lord does
care who runs God’s Country. We ask not that he be on our side, but rather we pray that we be
on His.

In 1900-01, baseball’s popularity had expanded to the point where a second “major” league, the
American League, was added to form a world championship opponent against the National
League’s best in what would become the World Series in 1903. Popularity at the turnstiles and in
the newspapers, however, had failed to propel the game beyond its rowdy, town ball image. The
players traveled by train from New York to Boston to Philadelphia to Washington; as far west as
St. Louis. On those trains they chewed tobacco, spitting out the windows and literally breathing
soot. Drinking and jocularity were the order of the day. They played cards in earnest and fell
prey to gamblers who paid them off to blow a game here or there; maybe just an error in a key
situation or a strikeout or a walk. Loose women were passed around. A ballplayer went from
town to town, often having his way with the “local talent” and moving on without regard to any
consequences.

The players were uneducated rubes, oddly out of place in expensive suits that their salaries
afforded them; money they never could earn outside of the game. If not for baseball they would
be back on the farm, or hustling pool halls, or worse. They were seen as thieves, reprobates, and
drunkards disreputable among decent women. The better hotels refused them. A father was
horrified if one approached his daughter.

Enter Christy Mathewson, who came not from a rural farm or pool hall or gambling den. Rather,
Mathewson had played football and baseball at Bucknell, and when he arrived in New York to
play for the Gants, he immediately established himself as the best pitcher in baseball. Fictional
characters like Jack Armstrong and “Baseball Joe” were based on Mathewson.

He was tall and strong. Real-life heroes are often depicted in movies by actors better looking
than they, but in Matty’s case if a young Robert Redford were to have played him, it would have
been a toss-up who was more handsome.

Photos of baseball players generally show elongated strides, strange swings, pitching styles that
more resembled a windmill or horse shoes, but Mathewson is shown driving, using his back legs
to power his body low to the ground, his arm in perfect place to deliver heat.

Matty was happily married, a perfect family man who lived his life with temperance, observance
and faith; an American hero for a new century, a perfect symbol of the rugged cheerfulness of
Teddy Roosevelt’s hopeful country.

For the first time, parents were not horrified that their daughters might be fans of a baseball
player if that player were Christy Mathewson. For the first time, well-dressed, well-coiffed
women could attend games at the Polo Grounds without being branded as “Baseball Annies” and
floozies. Teachers used Matty as an example of how children should conduct themselves and
aspire to be.

He was well spoken, polite and respectful. The writers adored him. His manager, John McGraw,
honed out of the most rough-hewn core of the baseball world, the hardscrabble Baltimore Orioles
of the 1890s, worshipped the ground his young star walked upon. His teammates treated him
                                                                                                48
more like a deity. He was loved, respected and admired by opponents.

In 1905, Mathewson’s legend was made in the World Series when he threw three shutouts
against Connie Mack’s Philadelphia A’s. In the entire history of the game, this performance is
still rated the single-greatest in Series history. Before Babe Ruth’s Yankees and the “Boys of
Summer” Dodgers, McGraw’s Giants were baseball royalty; the greatest dynasty in the game.
Mathewson was involved in the greatest of all pitcher’s duels; in 1908 against Chicago’s
Mordecai “Three-Fingered” Brown in the infamous “Merkle Boner” game at the Polo Grounds;
and in 1912 against a young Mathewson-redux, Boston fireballer “Smokey Joe” Wood, who
promised to fill Matty’s shoes until an arm injury cut short impossible greatness.

Mathewson defined the game. Other stars lacked his charisma or appeal. Ty Cobb was a racist
with a chip on his shoulder. Grover Alexander was a drunkard subject to seizures. “Prince Hal”
Chase was in the pockets of gamblers, and “Shoeless Joe” Jackson’s Hall of Fame career was cut
short by similar associations. Walter Johnson was an affable oil field worker and Chief Bender
was an Indian when bigotry still prevailed. But Matty was the ultimate national hero, and not
subject to the bigotry of so many. His catcher was a California Indian named Chief Meyers, and
Mathewson took him under his wing. Matty’s light made Meyer part of the “in crowd’ and was a
major advance in social progress through sports.

The term All-American suited him better than any college football player. College football was a
Harvard-Yale thing, an upper crust activity for the fur-coat crowd. Mathewson was everybody’s
favorite.

For more than 15 years he was the greatest athlete in the world. His pitching record holds up
today. A comparison of his statistics and accomplishments rates him at the very top. To say
today he is still the greatest ever to grace the mound is not an outlandish comment and among
baseball’s intelligentsia garners no real dispute. His 373 career victories are still the National
League record. His “fadeway,” now known as a screwball, is perhaps the most unhittable pitch
ever devised.

Mathewson approached the waning years of his great career with grace. He would manage, or
perhaps coach in the Ivy League. His post-playing days would be a repose of remembered
glories, generations of future stars paying homage to his stardom, politicians coming hat in hand
asking for an endorsement. Then World War I came around.

When President Woodrow Wilson entered the U.S. into a European “war to end all wars” that
would “save Democracy for the world,” Mathewson heeded the call. His collegiate background
and leadership skills earned him a commission, and he became Captain Christy Mathewson. Off
to war he went, and like so many he did not return whole. A mustard gas attack exposed his
lungs to the deadly fumes, and led to his untimely demise. A young man cut down in his prime, a
symbol of lost innocence.

Babe Ruth, an imbiber and libertine, replaced Matty as hero of Our National Pastime. Year by
year, the foibles of superstars were exposed, but Christy Mathewson remains the single
                                                                                               49
unsmeered figure of all-time greatness and heroism.




THINE EYES HAVE SEEN THE FUTURE OF CONSERVATISM; MEET CHUCK
DEVORE
By STEVEN TRAVERS

MARIN COUNTY, Calif. (Aug. 4, 2009) - I attended a revival meeting last night. I saw a
resurrection. Thine eyes have seen the future, and the setting for this particular miracle was an
upscale living room in Kent Woodlands, a woodsy epicenter of the modern environmentalist
movement; a place where 40 years ago elite liberals refused to dam a nearby lake that constantly
flooded the “little people” who lived in the lowlands below because a mouse or a tree might have
to be sacrificed, while commoners navigated their streets by rowboat.

Kent Woodlands is part of a town called Kentfield, which is part of Marin County, which is part
of the San Francisco Bay Area, which is a “coastal enclave” of Northern California; all of which
are appellations for a 21st Century brand of Left-wing liberalism that has become so vociferous
as to resemble a religion. To live in Marin often means to be enmeshed within this mindset, and
to be surrounded by the notion that other ways of thinking are so far off, and have so little chance
of electoral success, as to stifle any hope. It is an Alice in Wonderland world and, while it is a
beautiful, marvelous place, escape from this world, whether literally or philosophical, is tonic for
the soul.

Enter Chuck DeVore. I first met Chuck in 1988. I was a USC graduate living in Orange County.
Chuck was a few years removed from Claremont-Mudd College, and in his mid-20s was on the
fast track. He had gotten knee deep in G.O.P. politics at Clarement-Mudd, then joined the Army,
was assigned to the Pentagon, liasoned with the Ronald Reagan Administration and Republican
Congressmen like San Diego’s Duncan Hunter. A true wunderkind, young DeVore literally
dictated a letter Congressman Hunter used to initiate a key arms deal with the Israelis.

Young DeVore saw the same kind of Democrat obstructionism when it came to American efforts
at defending little Israel, at the time in a bare-knuckles brawl against all the Soviet client states of
the Middle East. He and Congressman Hunter worked diligently on an end-run around hill
opposition, managing to craft an arms-protection deal with the Israelis with lasting benefits to
this very day.
                                                                                                 51
In 1988, a coveted Congressional seat representing the wealthy environs of Newport Beach
and outlying communities opened up. A mad scramble among many qualified candidates ensued.
DeVore threw his hat in the ring, ostensibly for name recognition and experience. This was when
I met him. We were both in military Reserve units located near each other, and had that in
common. Everything about the guy was impressive. Ultimately C. Christopher Cox emerged the
winner, and from there he forged a successful career in Congress followed by a stint at the SEC.

DeVore was able to make the best use of a unique aspect of military service, that of the
“citizen-soldier” who serves in the National Guard while pursuing a lucrative career in the
private sector. For two decades he was practiced in the arts of military intelligence, rising to the
rank of lieutenant colonel. All the while, he made excellent money as a high-ranking aerospace
executive. Living in wealthy south Orange County, Devore had a perfect family life and surely
did not need the rough n’ tumble of politics, but he was drawn to it like a moth to a flame.

DeVore says he has “a perfect face for radio.” He may not be Robert Redford in The Candidate,
but he is very youthful, pleasant-looking, at 6-4 very athletic; somebody who one imagines
looked every bit the part of a lieutenant colonel. He explains that he looks so young because he
keeps the vices to a bare minimum, combined with “good genetics.” Energy exudes from him.

He has entered the race for California’s U.S. Senate seat, held by Marin County’s own Barbara
Boxer. Boxer is no dummy and is acutely aware that as of this writing she trails by four
percentage points in a projected match with DeVore. Knowing is one thing; overcoming is
another. These are harsh facts for a liberal Senator from a “blue state” who has seen most of
what she spent her life working for come to fruition in the past year, but like a football coach of a
                                                                                               52
team that blows a 20-0 halftime lead and now trails, 24-20, the psychology of the thing is a
bigger challenge than a mere four points.

Senator Boxer has led a remarkably charmed political life. A failed stockbroker from Brooklyn,
she came to Marin, like so many venturing west, trying to re-invent herself. A stint as a writer for
a free weekly publication somehow led her to election as a county supervisor. Then the
Congressional seat opened up like manna from Heaven. Early 1980s gerrymandering assured a
Democrat victory, and the cocaine addiction of Phil Burton opened a position in the infamous
“Burton machine” (1982). Enter Barbara Boxer and a decade of uninterrupted House rule. In
1990 I managed the campaign of her Republican opponent, Bill Boerum, and in a sign of just
how ineffective the woman is, we managed to get the San Francisco Chronicle to endorse
Boerum, but getting the district’s Democrat citizenry to vote like decent Americans was by then
an exercise in futility. She won.

ADV SE, DEAR E: READ SUN TSU S THE ART OF WAR

I am an author and a reader. In my library are about 1,000 titles, and they are not comics or
paperback romances. My collection is heavy with the classics, politics, history, war annals,
biographies and autobiographies of the world’s great movers and shakers; in short I have stored a
wealth of knowledge, read 90 percent of it, and have convinced myself that I simply am the
Western world’s font of knowledge. Chuck DeVore within an hour disabused me of that notion,
big time. His quick, easy references to Plato; verbatim quotations of the Federalist Papers;
perfectly nuanced comparisons between our successful Founding Fathers and France’s failed
                                                                                               53
“terrors”; the creation of the German civil service system of the 1840s and its
implementation in 1880s post-Reconstruction America; the relationship of man to God and the
rights endowed therein; and the distinct differences between the Left and the Right on these
issues; all lead one to the conclusion that he has out-read, out-studied, and out-comprehended me
by embarrassing lengths.

But Chuck DeVore is not some stuffy bookworm. He is a modern man and apparently at the
cutting edge of information technology. His use of satirical songs, YouTube videos, Facebook,
Twitter, and all other New Age endeavor has earned high placement among the various “most
viewed” lists, “most innovative” awards, and a cover story in the Wall Street Journal detailing
how he is creating new paradigms in campaign technique. Barbara Boxer simply looks at this
“creeping terror” like the 1969 Chicago Cubs watched the New York Mets get closer . . . and
closer . . . and closer.

There is a portion of the population that will always need to hear the Left’s drivel. Health care
advances, free education, scholarships, programs, handouts, integration, free market

That being said, a recent poll concluded that the happiest people in the world are “old, white
Republicans.” The American conservative is girded by a faith in God. There is a growing
Apocalyptic vision within its ranks, based on the notion that Christ will return, some say as early
as 2011. The return of Christ gives rise to speculation of an anti-Christ, and some have found
Obama to fit that bill, but none of this talk surfaced in Kentfield. The anti-Christ does not seem
to have a Biblical foundation in the Book of Revelation or elsewhere; Satan is a malevolent
spirit, not a man, but either way the believer is comforted that no matter the destruction
foreordained by the Final Days, it is God’s will, and whatever that is, is perfect, to be accepted in
its perfection. It’s a Christian thing.

The Kentfield conservatives were not focused on Obama, anyway. There was no hint of racial
bigotry, the usual lie of the Left. When asked about Latino outreach, DeVore essentially
indicated that good ideas are good ideas and anybody can recognize them, regardless of
ethnicity. He did say that as an Army officer, “I have commanded and been commanded by
Latinos,” citing their penchant for military service. There was certainly no bashing of “illegals,”
and the recent question of Obama’s birth, which the Democrats would have you believe makes
them a bunch of kooks and fringe nuts, was never mentioned formally or among the cocktail
gatherers as best as I could hear.

What really had them going was George Soros. Soros is a mysterious character who, like Joseph
P. Kennedy before him, seems to control financial markets with blatantly illegal inside
information (for which he is apparently insulated enough to avoid prosecution, much less real
investigation) and is the money behind everything on the Left. An overriding premise carried the
day, and this premise is that Soros (who helped the Nazis during World War II) is not simply a
guy whose politics they disagree with; or a bad or even immoral man; but rather that he is an
actually evil human being; that this is not a contemplated possibility but an accepted fact; and
that if a major political party in a nation as great as America is controlled by such a creature, this
reflects so pitifully upon that party as to be almost beyond redemption. It is people like Soros
who infuse the God-fearing conservatives with the notion that this is not merely a Democratic
political contest, but a battle between good and evil. It is that same belief in God, however, that
prevents most of these types of people from going over the edge; that since God is in control He
will handle business in the end regardless of the lies and perfidies of Soros and his minions.

Assemblyman DeVore was asked about investigating Soros and the malevolent market
manipulations he has orchestrated in Europe and, as the ultimate “September surprise,” the 2008
humdinger. Like Joe Kennedy, he has made his fortune on the misery of others. In this most
recent downturn he has enjoyed his greatest gains. What this means should seem obvious, but
somehow the national will to punish lies only within these small gatherings. We live in a world
in which a blatant criminal and Nazi sympathizer is allowed to shadow-run the Democrats,
whereby if he had anything to do with the Republicans, he would be banished so far from the
G.O.P. as to beyond any blip on the radar screen.

Despite Senator McCain’s shortcomings, after he nominated Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, then
held the Republican National Convention, there were some polls that had him up by as many as
                                                                                            56
10 ½ points. RealClearPolitics.com averaged him with about a four point advantage when
the “economic tsunami” hit, and many see Soros’s dirty hands all over this, just as Joe Kennedy
orchestrated a “tombstone vote,” pushing John Kennedy into the White House in 1960. The
Kentfield conservatives were of a certain age and therefore resigned by a lifetime of observation
that this is the Democrat way. Thus, a lifetime of resentment towards them permeates their being.

DeVore’s one fault was dismissing the investigate-Soros-and-Goldman-Sachs notion as “too
complicated” an issue, but in this he failed to understand the methods of his hero, Reagan. In
1972 Governor Reagan advocated California Proposition 2, a groundbreaking tax-reduction
ballot initiative that failed when he himself said in a Bay Area TV interview that it was so
complicated “I cannot explain it to you.” In 1978 he came again, this time as a private citizen
campaigning for Proposition 13. This time he said, “there are simple answers, they just are not
easy ones.” He endeavored throughout that successful campaign and his two terms in the White
House to simplify his communications successfully.

2008 is increasingly appearing to be an anomaly. For years, liberal media bias actually helped
the Right. People saw it, recognized that it was wrong, and voted against it. Certainly, the likes
of war protesters, store-smashing anti-capitalists, Code Pinkers, draft dodgers, cowards, Cindy
Sheehan types, race extortionists, drunkards and gay whorehouse owners (Ted Kennedy, Barney
Frank) would have their actions exposed and, when the public made observation of what they
were all about, chose of their own free will to reject them wholeheartedly. Until 2008. In 2008
Code Pink won. In 2008 Al Sharpton won. In 2008 the nuts who break windows in cities hosting
global economic summits won. But it appears to have faded, and it appears to be a one-time,
                                                                                                 58
one-election phenomenon. They elected the Kenya-Kansas man. A feel good, a makeover.
Reparations. But man did it come with a price tag, and man oh man is there ever buyer’s
remorse!

Perhaps never in this nation’s history has such a political chasm existed. At least Union and
Confederate soldiers of the Civil War respected each other’s courage and valor. In 2009, the
Right does not have the slightest scintilla of respect for the Left, and the Left utterly despises the
Right. As it stands, people seem to be able to co-exist in schools, supermarkets, restaurants and
bars. That said, life’s choices increasingly are fraught with political symbolism. The choice of
one’s car, food, school, clothes, hair, entertainment, and a myriad of other items, often reveals
partisan leanings. In Marin County, a Republican bumper sticker or sign hung in the front yard is
almost sure to be torn down with vandalism to property, even in wealthy neighborhoods. This
appears to be the kind of crap Democrats do to Republicans that Republicans never do to
Democrats, and this fact crystallizes in very simple order the superiority of conservatism over
liberalism. One side shows class, the other does not. It is not even an opinion, but more a set of
facts that leads to a logical conclusion, the kind of argument Plato would make. If this gulf keeps
widening, 50 years hence there could be violence. It is, after all, in man’s nature. It would be a
Leftist violence. If the Right gets shut out they will turn to Christ. If the Left gets shut out they
will break things like in Berkeley and Seattle and many other scenes of liberal protest over the
decades. This is a fact Alinsky, Sharpton and Obama have played to for years; intimidate and
extort from the other side in order to avoid said violence.

What the Right is now coming to grips with, and perhaps the brazen Obama should be thanked
for exposing the Alinsky rules and the Left’s immorality so completely, is that evil is trying to
make a stand, maybe its final stand, right here in America, using this greatest of all nations by
hi-jacking a political party within our very borders. This is the challenge we face, the enemy
within, and somehow the Right, shaken like a woolly mammoth discarding the ice age from its
long-frozen carcass, finally senses it.

To para-phrase George C. Scott as George Patton, “We will be allowed to fulfill our destiny. His
will be done.”

        First and foremost, the Republicans needs to be realistic. They are in a struggle for the
future of their party and country. The stakes are high, but not desperate. America herself will
overcome bad leaders and bad times. Barack Obama is constrained by American institutions
from destroying our way of life. The Constitution, term limits, Congressional “checks and
balances,” party politics, the media; these are factors that work against dicatorship. The kind of
total control that a Joseph Stalin held in the Soviet Union; Adolph Hitler in Nazi Germany; or
Kim Jong-Il in modern North Korea; an American President cannot “rulke” in this manner. That
is the good news.
        However, for the four (or eight) years that a President holds office, he is more powerful
and influentiual than any despot. The United States is the single most powerful empire in the
history of Mankind, stronger than the Romans, the British, Alexander’s Greece, or any other
historical power. Therefore, an American President is capable of effecting greater change and
influence than anyone else in the world. Obama understands this reality and is taking full
advantage of it. Unless something truly unforeseen takes place, the G.O.P. must resign itself to
this reality, as well.
        An example is President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Republicans of the mid-1930s
were aghast at the makeover of American, and the role of government, that he instituted. Try as
they might, they were unable to prevent FDR from changing th very nature of the people’s
relationship with their government. Even when Dwight Eisenhower and the Republicans took
over in sweeping manner in the 1950s, Roosevelt had instituted sweeping changes that coul not
be rolled back. Indeed, FDR’s blueprint dominates governmnt worldwide to this day.
        World War II had a enormous effect on the body poilitic, ultimately solidifying the
conservative base, but it is extremely unlikely such an event will happen in our lifetimes, much
less for the next 1,000 years. Furthermore, nobody would possibly “wish” such an event take
place. World War II was of incredible, ultimate benefit to this nation, but this was only
something we could focus on in hindsight. Nobody would have predicted this result, much less
hoiped for such a thing.
                                                                                           61

LIES OF THE SECULAR LEFT

Mel Gibson just announced he is getting divorced and having a child by a woman, not his wife.
This comes on the heels of his incredibly embarrassing drink driving video/arrest a few years
ago. His case has been used by the secularist and atheist Left as an example of why Christians
and conservatives are hypocrites. Turn that around. The Left are the liars. Herein is the
explanation.

In 2004 Mel made THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST. It was beautiful and successful. It peeved
the Left, mainly because he had the temerity to actually quote Scripture; parts that were not
flattering to the Jewish Pharisees and showed the ambivalence of Pontius Pilate. I guess Mel
could have used “literary license” with the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, but he
chose to tell the Truth instead.

This of course turned him from a Hollywood superstar to a super-rich outcast. Then he went on a
self-destruction rampage. Powerful Hollywood Jews went after him with all he had, but Mel’s
movie was so huge it made him “bullet-proof.” That is, against Hollywood; not against the devil.

So his enemies said Mel was a drunk, a womanizer, a hypocrite. Of course he is. We all are. This
is where the Left has no clue whatsoever.

When Mel fell, his enemies said it was proof that Christians are hypocrital, judgmental,
                                                                                               62
wrong-headed. As if Mel had been saying, “I’m a Christian, therefore a great man, and those
who are not are less than me. Ha Ha.”

Hollywood is about promoting Democrats and down-grading Republicans. Take for instance the
recent spy thriller Breach. Since the beginning of time it seems, every spy who committed
treason against America and the West was a Left-wing radical or sympathizer. Hundres of spies
over decades of time. Alger Hiss, Kim Philby, Franklin’s Roosevelt aides, the Rosenbergs; the
list is long. What is not long is the number of movies about them. Those movies virtually do not
exist. Instead they get lying portrayals of Joe McCarthy accusing innocent Jews and Democrats.
After the Venona archives opened in the Soviet Union in the early 1990s we discovered that
many of those accused actually were Communists and spies. The poor, disgraced filmmakers,
instead of living in abject poverty caused by mean conservatives, more often than not moved to
the French Riviera or Cote d’Azur and made avante garde European movies with Luc Goddard.
Such imprisonment!

MAVER CK HERO

Charlie Wilson, played by Tom Hanks, was a Texas Democrat. The kind, which the movie does
not tell us, who became a Republican when they saw how disgraceful the Democrats had
become. A patriotic cDemocrat, which unfortunatly is an exception to the rule.

The movie would have you believe that Wilson worked against the Reagan Administration to
fund and lead the Afghan resistance that ended the Soviet empire. Then it would you believe that
Wilson alone warned Reagan that unless they funded schools and cultural life, “crazies” like
Osama bin Laden would make us rue the day later.

Wilson deserves credit and he found some resistance here and there, but the idea that Ronald
Reagan won the Cold War in Afghanistan kicking and screaming against his own policies is,
well, not true. His CIA chief, Bill Casey, was wildly enthusiastic about the Afghan operation. I’ll
give Wilson his credit; the credit Sorkin never gives to Reagan and Casey.

Watch the little messages in the movie: Wilson tells Julia Roberts (who plays a conservative
matron and never looked better in the process), “I’m a liberal.” He’s about as liberal as Tom
DeLay. He also tells her she owes him because she “helped me out with the pro lifers,” which of
course is Sorkin’s way of getting his vote in favor of abortion.

But the most obvious stuff concerns Charlie’s drinking, drugging and womanizing. He does good
things, the movie informs us, and should not be held back by indiscretions and immoralities.
Who is this supposed to remind us of? Bill Clinton, who was out there making the economy
hum, keeping abortion legal, doing “good work” while those evil Republicans fought him at
every turn. Lying, cocaine use, drunkenness; who cares?

Sorkin gets a knock in at Rudy Giuliani. The movie was made in 2007 when Rudy was a
front-runner for the 2008 GOP nomination which he eventually failed to capture.

Hey, loved Charlie Wilson’s War, but it did not get past my antennae.

       The head law clerk for the library was Richard Lauranzano. Unbeknownst to Michael,

Lauranzano had been sentenced to 25 years-to-life for murdering his 14-year-old daughter,

chopping her into pieces, and putting her various body parts into dumpsters around Los Angeles.

       He was also categorized by the CDC as a “CAT J,” or a psychotic in remission, which
                                                                                               66
meant he was also on very strong anti-psychotic medication. Lauranzano charged every
inmate for his legal work. He was able to maintain total control of the law library by hiding all of
the legal directories that would assist inmates in their own legal research.
        Therefore, the only way Michael could research a case was to read everything cited in a
legal statement that seemed close to supporting his multiple situations he had stumbled upon. It
was a very long and arduous procedure, but in doing so Michael read a lot of law cases,
becoming an expert in “Shepardizing,” which is the act of finding newer cases where they cite an
existing older case that is “on point” to appeal.
        During the first week of his new employment at the law library, Michael sat down with
Lauranzano to explain his case and why so many things had legally gone wrong. Lauranzano
realized that he had a huge meal ticket and over the next 22 months charged Michael almost
$7,000 to file various appeals.
        What Lauranzano did, however, was to lie to Woodson that he could not file a writ of
Habeas Corpus in pro per until he had his court-appointed appellate attorney, Ford Greene
removed from the case. Then the court would allow him to proceed in pro per.
        Inmate Lauranzano then sent Woodson on a 22-month “wild goose chase,” trying to
discharge Greene. When Woodson found out the truth he confronted Lauranzano, who then
threatened Woodson’s life by having other terminal inmates who were also his legal clients, and
were infected with AIDS, infect Michael by having him “beaten and bitten.”
        Woodson was terrified by this death threat and lived in fear of this indefensible attack
even after his release from state prison. It is very well known that inmates routinely ordered
“hits” on people outside of prison, and with a large homosexual population in the Castro district
of San Francisco just 10 miles away, Woodson did not feel safe until he was released from parole
in 1997.
        Woodson was unaware that he had no automatic right to proceed in pro per on direct
appeal. What transpired over the 22 months were attempts in the court of appeals, the state
Supreme Court, and the Federal district court. He was denied each time.
        The courts, in denying Woodson's prayer for relief, never cited In re Walker (1976). The

Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals did not rule on this issue that any appellant has a Constitutional

right to be their own lawyer on appeal until Woodson was released from prison in Hendricks vs.

Zenon, (1993).

           This probation revocation, at a cost to the Marin County taxpayers of over $300,000, was
    over the single question of restitution. It was so important during the Independent Journal's
    five-day front page coverage of the hearing to revoke probation, but it was now important
    enough for Christy Wareham to send this “blood money” to the multiple victims/tax cheats.

       Mancuso was one of the wealthiest of Hallinan's longtime clients. Hallinan “filed a flood

of paperwork after Mancuso's indictment, citing what he considered to be illegal and unethical

actions by White.” The “animus” between the two lawyers grew. Hallinan forced a deal in which

Mancuso would be granted leniency for informing on others.

        Then Hallinan became the unlikely target after Mancuso re-negotiated his deal to include,
he said in court papers, a probationary sentence. He would walk free instead of doing the 10
years he had been promised earlier. Within months, Hallinan and 11 Mancuso confederates were
indicted for drug smuggling, money laundering and racketeering. All of Mancuso's colleagues
ranked below him in his drug ring hierarchy.
        White and other prosecutors in Reno had a history of trying to get high-powered lawyers

disqualified from criminal drug prosecutions. This was the first time a criminal defense lawyer

had become the subject of an investigation because a client had turned on him. In letters, the

Post-Gazette sent specific questions about the Mancuso case to the U.S. Attorney in Las Vegas

and to Justice Department officials, without response.

       Hallinan said he was not looking for revenge against his former client, who was serving a

nine-year sentence in a Federal penitentiary. He said he was suing him to send a message to

informants and the government that if they make shady deals, they should be held accountable.

        ``(Informants) are going to be held civilly responsible for trying to buy their way out of
hell with someone else's soul,'' Hallinan the atheist said.
        Hallinan sued his former client for false arrest and malicious prosecution. Hallinan said
the government also should shoulder some of the blame, although he noted that it was immune
from being sued.
        The case was tried in San Francisco Superior Court before a jury of six men and six
women. The jury heard the 64-year old Hallinan testify in detail about his relationship with
Mancuso. As part of a plea bargain, he agreed to cooperate with Federal officials when Hallinan
was accused of helping to suppress evidence and launder money.
        In exchange, Mancuso, 51, received a reduced sentence and was allowed to keep $4
million in assets. Hallinan estimated that Mancuso had as much as $9.5 million in assets. Robert
Moore, Mancuso's lawyer, denied that his client was instrumental in Hallinan's arrest, noting that
34 people testified against Hallinan at his 1995 trial. ``But if it comes down to that, we'll re-try
Pat Hallinan,'' Moore said, adding that it would be up to Hallinan to prove that Mancuso was
lying.
        ``Not only did Hallinan know, but he helped plan the money laundering part of it,'' Moore
said. He also said Federal drug agents set their sights on Hallinan long before they talked to
Mancuso. ``The decision to prosecute was the U.S. attorney's,'' Moore said.
                                                                                              72
        He said Mancuso paid Hallinan $1.2 million for services he provided from 1974 to
1990, which included helping launder $180,000 in drug proceeds through a bogus land sale in
Mexico.
Moore said he would call to the stand many of those who testified at Hallinan's 1995 trial,
including Mancuso, who was at the Federal detention center in South Dakota.
        In his suit, Hallinan said Mancuso assured him in 1977 that he was no longer involved in
any drug smuggling. In ensuing years, Hallinan handled some tax and real estate matters for
Mancuso. He was “surprised and dismayed” when Mancuso was arrested in 1989 for running an
international marijuana-smuggling operation.
        He negotiated a plea bargain for his client, but then, he said, Mancuso turned on him. The
developer, who was facing a life term, implicated dozens of people, including Hallinan. Hallinan
said he went through ``a two- year period of virtual hell'' during which he was unable to practice
law. The “nightmare” ended with his acquittal.
        Hallinan sought $900,000 in compensatory damages, including the $400,000 in legal fees
he spent defending himself, as well as an unspecified amount in punitive and emotional distress
damages.
        His brother Terence Hallinan, the District Attorney of San Francisco, told him to, ``Hang
in there, Patrick,''
        ``I think what he is doing is the right thing,'' he told the press.

On August 6, 1991 the San Francisco Chronicle ran the headline “Captain Left Many on Sinking

Ship.” One of the few luxuries that Woodson was able to have in state prison was that his mother

paid for a subscription to the paper, which was delivered to his bed every day. Even though the

newspaper was one or two days old, it did allow Woodson to stay in touch with what was

happening in the outside world.

       In a front page article was the incredible story describing how Captain Yiannis Avranas

and his senior officers abandoned their posts and left on the second South African Air Force

rescue helicopter that arrived at their ship, the 7,554-ton cruiser Oceanos (Greek registry). The

South Africans came to rescue the 571 passengers and crew that was floundering and on the

verge of sinking in 15-foot waves.

        The ship left Johannesburg, South Africa in bad weather, and just off-shore began to take
on water. The 51-year-old Avranas, a seafarer for 30 years, acknowledged leaving passengers on
board but rejected the criticism, saying he “went ashore to supervise rescue operations.”
        Captain Avranas, in an interview with ABC news, also said, “When I order abandon ship,
it doesn't matter what time I leave. Abandon is for everyone. If some people like to stay, they can
                                                                                              73
stay.”
        The ship's owner, Epirotiki Lines, defended Avaranas: “We are proud of the way the
captain and officers and crew performed their duties under the most difficult weather conditions
and took the correct decisions in doing so . . . We consider the complete success of the rescue
operations speaks for itself.”
        Frank Brayaard a maritime historian, and curator of the American Merchant Marine
Museum in Kings Point, New York, called the captain's decision “completely wrong and
cowardice of the first-order.”
        “The captain is not expected to go down with the ship, but is expected to be the last to
leave. It is very much an accepted tradition that the captain is responsible for the lives of
everyone on board.” Passengers who watched the captain leave were incensed. They said,
“Neither he nor his crew gave any instructions.”
        Reading this story, Woodson was struck by the fact that, in 1983 he had a meting with his
attorneys. They did not give good legal advice. If they had, he would have declared bankruptcy
then and there. It was technically the “right” thing to do, but if he done that, he would have been
the “captain abandoning a sinking ship.” He would have abandoned his investors. Instead, he
rode it out. His investors were eventually paid. Nobody ever thanked Woodson. The press, the
investors, the community reviled him, but in his heart he knew that he had not “abandoned ship,”
and in sop doing he had saved the investors whether they ever knew it, admitted it or thanked
him for it.
        “Well, so what does the sinking of the cruise ship Oceanos have to do with the sinking of
the Woodson Company?” he asked. “Personally, by actions later deemed criminal by a vindictive
D.A., I saved everybody aboard this financial vessel. Just think of the outcry from the 1,850-plus
permanent investors, when they found out following the bankruptcy, that ‘Woodson had
abandoned them’ and had made absolutely no attempt to find outside capital, or to sell the
priceless ‘Permit’ that allowed me to operate like a private bank, or did not make any effort
whatsoever to save them.
        “It would have been very simple indeed and the prudent thing to do, and what the
California Penal Code Section 504 demanded, for me to simply file for Chapter 11 Federal
Bankruptcy protection and to just walk away.
        “Had I done so, I could have spent the last year with my dying wife, the $1 million in life
insurance would have been completely exempt under Federal bankruptcy law from any and all of
my creditors and I’d not have been charged with any crime.
        “But instead, I did everything humanly possible to save everybody on board this financial
ship and for my good deeds, I now stand convicted of 13 felony counts of embezzlement, was
sentenced to 10 years in state prison, emerged in 1993 penniless, with a $48,000 California tax
lien, when my bankruptcy attorney ‘just forgot’ to pay the ‘priory tax claim’ from a $1million
bankruptcy estate, and with a $15 million dollar judgment hanging over my head.
        “Now just ask yourself, who would you rather go to sea with, Captain Avranas, or

Captain Woodson who never forgot his responsibilities to the 2,000-plus investors who had

entrusted his family with over $70 million of their hard-earned savings?” Woodson asked.

Woodson did so even while he attended to his slowly dying wife and mother of his four young
                                                                                                74
children. The answer should be very clear, but the Marin Impendent Journal very likely will

never give him one iota of credit. If he were a Democrat politician, a gay rights activist, a “global

warming” alarmist,      new age artist, a Left-wing actor, radical anti-American polemicist;

anything other than a WASP Republican former millionaire and USC Trojan; he would get the

benefit of the doubt. He was down to a about $100 upon his 1993 release. He had been

incarcerated from February of 1987 to January of 1993.

       In 1984 Woodson faced a set of circumstances and decisions, although obviously not in
                                                                                             76
combat. He refused to abandon investors and for this act, he was rewarded with 10 years in

state prison. “All I had to do was to simply walk away,” he said.

       Dr. Roger Freed, a good friend of Woodson's and board certified in adult, child and

forensic psychiatry, wrote to him on June 27, 2001. He included a copy of page 553, chapter 13

from the Comprehensive Textbook of Psychiatry, Fourth Edition that stated:

          Dwight Chapin started a Facebook network called Trojan Ballers and they got together

for a terrific time. Mike and Bart Leddel became actively re-united. In Reno, Donald Segretti

regaled the crowd with a “tell all” account of “everything I did working for President Nixon.”

The crowd was reportedly beside themselves, laughing hysterically.

        “Life is memories, and these are the great ones . . . you are welcome here anytime, our
guest, no problem but you gotta call and then be here . . .” Paulin, who runs a resort on the
Hawaiian islands, wrote him, alleviating any concerns that maybe his past had made him persona
non grata. Not so.
        But Woodson had to reconcile some hard feelings, too. After 20 years, his “former best
friend,” a KA frat brother, who sat next to him at graduation in 1964, who "abandoned my ship"
when his financial and legal problems did not fit into his perfect "super rich" lifestyle
in Hillsborough, inquired through Paulin how to get hold of Mike.
        “For over eight years for every major holiday, Christmas, the Fourth, Thanksgiving, New
Year’s, you name it, our families were together,” said Woodson. “They even drove up to
Sacramento many times when I was with Reagans and they stayed at our house multiple times at
Tahoe for skiing. We were together in Sacramento for the '74 SC-Notre Dame 55-24 game when
the police came to the house because we were all yelling so loud.
        “His wife was Trisha's best friend, then they refused to take in Sarah so she could finish
the eighth grade, even with a $150,000 trust for her and who was their Goddaughter, when they
locked me up in jail, prior to sending me into San Quentin, with 16 days to go on my five-year
county jail sentence. Now he wants to say, ‘Hi.’
        “If the reverse had happened to our two families and his wife had died, his two children,
now both SC grads, would have been in our house in four hours for Trisha and me to raise. I
never would have abandoned him or his children.
        “I wrote to them multiple times from prison but they could not be bothered. They and
their two children drove right by Vacaville on their way to Lake Tahoe many times over those
three years, but they could not be bothered. I stopped by his financial printing business on
Brannan Street in San Francisco when I got out in '93, when I was dead broke and where he
could have employed even me as a lowly delivery man, but he could not be bothered. His wife’s
brother has stopped by the store many times over the years and he said that he would pass on my
hellos to them, who now have a winery in Napa, but they could not be bothered.
        “Talk about betrayal. They are the absolute worst. Now he wants to say, ‘Hi.’ I don't
think so.”
                                                                                                79

“I’m sure that when somebody tries to analyze why I would be so stupid as to trust Patrick

Hallinan with only a verbal agreement of the most important contract that was never in writing,

they’d say ultimately I have nobody to blame but myself,” said Woodson. “But I trusted him.” In

2008 the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine titled, “The best game ever” slapped Woodson in

the face with the reality of that moment in the parking lot at the Marin County Civic Center.

        A sage philosopher once said, “History does not repeat itself; it rhymes.” George
Santayana famously said, "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it." In
2009, the difference between Presidents Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama were starkly shown,
to the great benefit of Reagan’s legacy and the continuing shame of Obama’s. Reagan inherited a
real estate crisis from President Jimmy Carter. In 1981-82 he broke the unions, “crashed” the
economy, and allowed free market capitalism to prosper. The result was the longest
uninterrupted run of economic growth in a century. Unfortunately, Woodson’s hero Reagan,
along with his Treasury Secretary Donald Regan, set off a chain of events that bankrupted his
company.

         In 1995 Woodson applied for a certificate of rehabilitation. Judge John Sutro said to his
 clerk, "Why did I get this one?" in quotes Woodson overheard. He was told "it is a simple
 rotation of judges." Sutro refused to recuse himself even though his children were at Branson
 with Woodson's. He was a senior partner at Pillsbury, Madison and Sutro, the lead law firm
 suing Woodson. His firm received hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees going after him!

          In 2009, Woodson was preparing to submit another application for certificate of

rehabilitation. It is very important to him. He would like to get his old licenses back. He is also

doing the political and legal preparations for an application of pardon to California’s Republican

Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

       Madoff’s ultimate punishment has not been revealed as of this writing. It is my prediction

that it will not be nearly as harsh as that experienced by Mike Woodson.

        In 2009 a Tiburon man named Malcolm McVickar admitted to stealing $200,000 from
elderly victims, including his 92-year old father. After a plea deal he faced up to nine years in
prison. He received little fanfare in the press. He never worked for Ronald Reagan and, like
Madoff, will likely get less ultimate punishment than Woodson received.
        In 2008 a local San Francisco talk show host named Bernie Ward was arrested and pled
guilty to child pornography. Among other things, Ward was secretly masturbating in an
adjoining room while watching his son’s male friends play video games, and told an on-line sex
fantasist he planned to do more. The fantasist alerted authorities and Ward was arrested.
        Ward was a radical Left-winger. He hosted a nightly radio show in which he lambasted
Christianity, the Republican Party, and President George W. Bush. He was a close ally of U.S.
Senator Barbara Boxer (D.-California). Senator Boxer attempted to intervene on behalf of Ward,
but conservative talk show host Michael Savage exposed it, so she could not get away with it.
        The San Francisco press completely hid Ward’s case. Whatever mention of it was

relegated to the back pages with only the most cursory legal descriptions. But Savage . . .

savaged Ward, in part because they had once worked at the same station. Ward, hating Savage

for his opinions, told his listeners what Savage’s home address was, suggesting they go there and

do him harm. Savage never even learned this until Ward’s child porn case went public. He

provided all the details, including tape recordings provided by law enforcement, that the liberal

media refused to air.

      Savage knew the Woodson case well. Savage, a native New Yorker, had long lived in
                                                                                             85
Marin County, an oddity in that his politics are Right-wing, but he loves the scenery, the

weather and the sense of intellectual liberation there. Some years ago his topic was, “Scandalous

figures that got caught and paid a public price.” Woodson heard the show and called in. Savage

remembered the case well and had Michael on for the better part of 20 or 30 minutes to speak of

the ravages of the Bay Area liberal media, among other profundities.

       In 2000, coverage of the George W. Bush-Al Gore Presidential campaign was quite fair.

In 2004 it became out of control in favor of John Kerry over President Bush, but it was so

obvious - Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 and the Dan Rather “National Guard story” – that it

probably helped Bush.

          The Marin Independent Journal has been reduced to a thin reed of paper resembling one

classic movie Iwo Jima, or Audie Murphy in To Hell and Back, America loves a hero. We

also honor those in sports such as Joe Montana, who orchestrated winning drives in the Super

       He must take responsibility for all of his life, good and bad. He swam with the sharks and

survived. He ran with a fast crowd and lived in the rarefied air of Ronald Reagan, of Presidents,
                                                                                                 88
college chancellors, and corporate titans; of celebrities and beautiful women. He is a product

of his own environment, of his own actions. He has much to be proud of, and plenty to be

ashamed of. All of us do.

        Like G. Gordon Liddy, Mike Woodson outlasted his enemies. Try as they might, they
could not destroy him. But in the end Michael Woodson is more than willing to extend the hand
of reconciliation to those who wronged him, and ask those he too wronged extend the same
charity. He freely lives by the tenets of The Lord’s Prayer:
        “Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not
into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”

AL ENDRISS


       Al Endriss is going into the Redwood High School Hall of Fame on April 23. It is the

50-year anniversary of my alma mater and I have many friends - coaches, teammates – who

make up the first class of honorees. These include coach Bob Troppmann, an old family friend;

Jim Peters, whose brother Bill was a close pal of mine; Pete Carroll, who coaches my college

alma mater, USC; Darrell Elder, who went to USC ahead of me and told me how great it was;

Buddy Biancalana, my teammate on the 1977 Redwood national champions; Chad Kreuter, who

along with Carroll is a USC head coach (baseball); and Patti Gibian, whose brother was also my

teammate.

        But to my way of thinking it was Endriss who casts the largest shadow over this event.
When I was in the eighth grade, I saw Redwood win the old TOC at Albert Field. They looked
like superstars; short hair, traditional uniforms, disciplined, baseball fundamentalists, men among
boys. I wanted to be part of that.
        Al Endriss was a daunting, indeed even a scary figure. Playing in his program for four
years, I cannot say it was “fun.” It was hard work and required total commitment. He did things
then I disliked, but later in my life I found that if I could “survive” Endriss as a mere teenager, no
adult challenge was an obstacle that could not be overcome. I played on scholarship in college
and made it to the professional level. I do not know that I would have gotten that far had I played
in another Marin prep program.
        Today, I still see Coach Endriss. He is 80 and still slightly scary, but we deal with each

other as men, and it feels good. He was not cut out for Marin, with its “I’m okay, you’re okay”
                                                                                              89
mantra. Endriss said his program was a totalitarian dictatorship, and it was. Man, were we

good. My freshman year (1974), the varsity team was simply unbelievable, but my senior year

(1977) we might have been better. Ranked number seven in the pre-season, the Independent

Journal said our goal of a national title was a little arrogant, but after taking the NCS title the

Easton Bat Company and Collegiate Baseball magazine indeed did name us mythical national

champions. I am a Marin prep historian, and with all due respect for the 1952 Tamalpais football

team and 1982 Drake basketball squad, I think the 1977 Redwood Giants are the the best in

MCAL sports history.

Bob Case told me one of the things this group likes is to hear a little about the speaker;
specifically, how I came to do what I do, which is by extension the reason I was invited here in
the first place. I am a fifth- or sixth-generation Californian whose family journeyed west during
                                                                                                91
the Gold Rush. I played professional baseball in the Cardinals and A's organizations,
graduated from the University of Southern California, coached at USC, Cal-Berkeley and in
Europe. I started a family, bought a house in Orange County, and also went to law school. Before
I was 30 I thought I was pretty hot and contemplated a political career, but my plans did not
materialize.

I became a sports agent, representing Al Martin of the Pittsburgh Pirates. I quickly determined
that doing the bidding of man-child athletes was not my calling, but God led me to my destiny
using a one-time "fallen Angel" named Bo Belinsky, a former no-hit lefty of the Los Angeles
Angels.

Bo was a client of our agency. He was still in demand for old-timers days and card shows. We
made no money off him but it was worth it just to hear his stories. Within this audience no doubt
many of you know those stories. Others ask, "Who was Bo Belinsky?" Trust me, and I hear
knowing laughter and see nodding heads, he had some stories. To shorten this anecdote, Bo told
us Robert DeNiro and other Hollywood heavyweights wanted to make a movie about his life. I
wrote the screenplay, Once He Was an Angel. The sports agency folded, but my writing career
was born.

I did "script doctor" work for Hollywood for the better part of six years and wrote one version of
the World War I movie The Lost Battalion. I could talk about that experience, which involved
the actor James Woods, producer Edgar Scherick, and the Creative Artists Agency in Beverly
Hills, but it would require an hour and several beers. I eventually moved into sports writing, first
covering preps for the L.A. Daily News and the Los Angeles Times, then as a columnist for a
magazine in Marina Del Rey which went out of business, a victim of the dot-bomb era.

I landed on my feet because in 2001, while working as a columnist, I was on hand regularly
watching Barry Bonds break Mark McGwire's all-time home run record. Bonds and I hit it off,
probably because he hated all the Bay Area writers and I was the only one without any baggage
                                                                                            92
with him. He agreed to authorize me to write his autobiography, but when proposed
publishers heard he wanted two million dollars they did the book version of collusion, dropping
the idea. Bonds then dropped me, and I wrote his unauthorized biography, Barry Bonds:
Baseball's Superman. It became a best seller and I entered the next phase of my writing career:
author of what will soon be 15 published books.

are the main criteria, then the argument would not entail USC, Notre Dame, Alabama,
Oklahoma, Michigan and the like, but rather Harvard, Princeton; perhaps even Chicago, Penn
and Columbia. With apologies to Ivy Leaguers who may grace this room, Harvard and Princeton
may be the powerhouse of the Supreme Court judicial pool and the White House record books,
but they are not the greatest historical college football teams of all time.

With all due respect for Oklahoma, Ohio State, and Michigan, there are three main contenders. If
you log onto certain Alabama web sites and blogs, you will be told that the Crimson Tide have
won as many as 13 national championships. They are in the Bible Belt and, as they say down
yonder, "the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away." So it is with 'Bama's titles. They actually
have nine and this includes asterisk seasons.

On January 1, 1965, the unbeaten Crimson Tide lost to Texas in the Orange Bowl. The photo of
                                                                                              93
a dejected Joe Namath leaving the field in tears, later quoted saying it was his "worst
disappointment" in football, is not a photo or quote of the 1964 national champions, but both the
AP and UPI insist they are. Alabama hangs the plaque as if it’s the real deal, but keeps the score
of the game in a janitor's closet somewhere. Jimmy Johnson and Jerry Jones of Arkansas are the
deserving, accorded-by-history national champions of 1964.

Alabama also would like you to believe they won the 1973 national title, since the UPI awarded
it to them before they lost to Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl. That game gets enough play on
classic sports stations to keep the Tide a little more quiet about it.

Alabama has a relatively low number of All-Americans and Hall of Famers, and are well down
the line among teams producing pros. I will leave discussion of their long-held segregated
practices out of this as the general point is made using numbers and logic.

So, as you all suspected, it comes down to the two giants of the college game, the two
heavyweight titleists, the two glamour schools, the two greatest rivals; one polished by
Hollywood, the other by the Vatican, yet both remain traditional, patriotic and righteous. I speak,
of course, of the University of Notre Dame and its cross-country opponent for the ages, the
University of Southern California.

Now, to say that USC has "passed" Notre Dame, or "tied" Notre Dame, as the greatest of all
historical football traditions, is subjective commentary. That said, should the Trojans beat the
Fighting Irish again in a few weeks; should Mark Sanchez or or Joe McKnight win the
Heisman in the next couple years; and should Southern California win the BCS national
championship game; well, the issue becomes less subjective and more like an accomplishment.

USC with 71 has the most first round draft picks. In 1968 they set the record for most first round
selections in a single year with five. They are the only school to have the number one pick two
years in a row with Ron Yary (1968) and O.J. Simpson (1969). They have surpassed Notre Dame
for most overall NFL draft picks with 446 and most pro football players with 414 since 1920.
They have had the most All-Pros, Pro Bowlers, and Pro Football Hall of Famers with 11, plus
three ex-assistant coaches. A Trojan has appeared in all but three Super Bowls, the most of any
college, and the Trojans have been on the winning team the most.

USC from 1962-82 had the greatest two-decade run ever. They were probably the team of the
1930s, 1960s, 1970s and unquestionably the 2000s. Howard Jones, John McKay and now Pete
Carroll stand shoulder to shoulder with any legends worth mentioning. Carroll's record is
perhaps the most mind-boggling. Consider that he enters the weekend 83-15 prior to the
Arizona game. They are approaching a 100-game record that almost equals USC's own 92-12-5
mark from 1971 to 1980, but consider that since the Trojans started the 2001 season 2-5 they
have gone 81-10 before the Arizona game, bested only by Miami (81-9 from 1985-93) for the
greatest 90-game run ever. When USC was ranked number one the first three weeks of the 2008
season, according top my sources that tied them with USC for most tims ranked first in the AP
poll with 89. There were reports that Oklahoma is first with 96, but my study of the OU media
guide indicates some "fuzzy math."

It does not end there.

On October 20, 2001 USC trailed Notre Dame, 20-16 late in a game at South Bend. The Irish
scored a late touchdown to clinch it, 27-16. In Pete Carroll's eight years at Troy, this marks the
only game he has lost by more than a touchdown. Nobody - not Knute Rockne, Frank Leahy,
Bud Wilkinson, Bear Bryant, Joe Paterno or Bobby Bowden - can even sniff this
accomplishment, which means that but-for a few good bounces, Carroll's teams could be a John
Wooden-like 97-1 with eight straight national titles. Those losses include an overtime road
defeat, all road games between the 2001 and 2007 Stanford games, and losses courtesy of missed
chip field goals and extra points.

Lastly, the movie version of my book One Night, Two Teams: Alabama vs. USC and the Game
That Changed a Nation, is under development. My friend J.K. McKay has been lobbying Kevin
Costner, who shares a Century City office building with J.K.'s law firm, to play his father. I
personally am rooting for Jon Voigt as Paul "Bear" Bryant and for the tag line to be, "Finally . . .
USC's Rudy."

So I conclude by saying that I know I have gone on and on about USC and its football history.
There's only one thing about it; each word is true. God bless America, and may the Trojans
continue to . . .

Fight On!

CAL FORN A S NOW A BLUE STATE BUT THERE ARE ST LL REPUBL CAN AREAS

But why is Marin so liberal? It is incredibly affluent, and in that regard a conundrum, in that
most wealthy folks vote to protect lower tax rates, a GOP staple yet seemingly a case of
Democrats going against their self interests. Marin is quite unique but can be compared to a few
other locations. Its basic demographics are similar to Left-wing bastions in Los Angeles
County. This includes Malibu, and a corridor starting in Brentwood and continuing to the
Hollywood hills. The San Fernando Valley has a relatively affluent-yet-liberal base, too.
However, much of L.A. liberalism can be attributed to the entertainment industry, which
contains a set of dynamics found almost no place else. A secondary influence is the large Jewish
population there, which reacted to decades of country club Republican anti-Semitism. Unless I
have missed a large recent shift, Marin is not heavily Jewish; it is certainly not as Jewish as, say,
Encino.

To some extent, these factors explain New York City, particularly the upper East Side, the West
Side, and Greenwich Village, although these places are more resembling the urban environment
of San Francisco (and the Castro district) than Marin County. Some of the wealthy Connecticut
suburbs look more like Marin than New York City or even Long Island and one-time Republican
strongholds such as Duchess and Westchester Counties. The northern Virginia suburbs are
beginning to turn blue; Austin, Texas is a liberal college town in the middle of a red state; and
there are other pockets here and there; but finding the kind of all-out liberalism of Marin County
in a place with remotely similar characteristics is largely an exercise in futility.

For the most part, the wealthy suburbs of America vote Republican, even in blue states. The
urban cities are where Democrats mine for most of their votes. Take Blackhawk, a wealthy
section of San Ramon that looks a lot like Marin except in the voting booth, where they tend to
be moderately Republican. I personally have lived in Orange County and L.A.'s south bay
(Redondo and Hermosa Beach). In terms of weather, racial patterns, affluence, lifestyle,
environment and other factors, both these places have much in common with Marin.
Hermosa/Redondo are probably moderately Democrat but can go to the GOP. Orange County
has moderated towards the Democrats here and there, but Newport Beach and Palos Verdes
Estates are two wealthy Southern California towns that in many ways mirror the Marin lifestyle,
yet are polar opposites in the voting booth.
                                                                                               99

Both Newport and Palos Verdes are remarkably similar: income, real estate prices, weather,
topography, environmental concerns, low crime rates, lifestyle; as a Marinite I have found
incredible commonality with these luxurious places. The only non-political difference is the
surfing and "beach boy" persona of the Southland, which is replaced in large measure by a
mountain bike culture here, but there is not much to read into that.

Take also Pacific Palisades, a section of Los Angeles tucked in between liberal Santa Monica,
Malibu and the westside, yet it is considered competitive for Republicans. Further south, La Jolla
is generally Republican and the Navy town of San Diego considered conservative-friendly.

So what does all this tell us? What is it about Newport Beach and Palos Verdes Estates that
causes its citizenry to be so conservative, and what is it about Marin County that causes its
people to be so liberal? A mere 400-plus miles separate the two areas. Both share the California
experience and vote in the same elections for U.S. Senate, Governor and President.

Let me start with some totally un-scientific, anecdotal observations. As a sports fan I have
discovered this odd fact: places that produce great high school football teams and a plethora of
star athletes tend to vote Republican, whereby places that are not gold mines of sports talent are
more likely to go Democrat. Why? What does this tell us, if anything? Could it be that a sports
haven like Orange County is more family-friendly, with parents more supportive of their kids
and schools; young people more disciplined and respecting of authority (coaches)? Marin
supports academics, but in Newport Beach and Palos Verdes Estates, for instance, there is
nothing I can glean indicating its students are less accomplished in the classroom.

Furthermore, the student population in Marin seems to have decreased markedly over the past 30
years. The 1960s and 1970s saw steady family growth and were the golden age of Marin prep
sports, with Redwood capturing the 1977 national championship in baseball and Drake setting a
state record for consecutive basketball wins in 1982-83. The number of athletes earning sports
scholarships has grown smaller in succeeding years.

The 680 corridor between Concord and Dublin arguably produces more top athletes than any
section of the Bay Area, and not incidentally, it occurs to me, they trend Republican more than
any other part of the region.

Some more really anecdotal evidence: places with lots of friendly, good-looking girls and hot
nightlife usually are more conservative. Perhaps this goes against the "traditional values"
argument Republicans make. Relatively Republican Scottsdale, Arizona, for instance, is a bar
haven with women so attractive they seemingly have been recruited to live there by the Chamber
of Commerce. They smile at guys more than Marin women and way more than San Francisco
women. There is no comparison between Scottsdale and any place outside of possibly Walnut
Creek, which again goes to the "athletes and chicks" factor favoring the GOP.

Consider that Orange County, south of L.A., is a sports gold mine and conservative. Ventura and
Santa Barbara, to the north of L.A., are not nearly as sports-crazy and vote Democrat with heavy
                                                                                               100
environmental emphasis.

Colleges with great football traditions also tend to have more girls worthy of Playboy's yearly
pictorial, fun campus life, and less liberal rhetoric than, say, Ivy League universities that have
not competed for the national championship since the Woodrow Wilson years. The Left will
state that this means they are smarter, but all the post-graduate factors such as income and
general success in America dispute this notion but-for a small few who stay in academia.
Athletes themselves tend to vote Republican by wide margins, which is partly explained by
self-interest (low taxes), but is more likely a result of strong family support systems helping them
in their formative years. Rockers and movie stars also make big incomes, but similar
athlete-family support is mainly absent. They vote Democrat.

ALABAMA AND ENDED SEGREGAT ON N SOUTHERN FOOTBALL

       Before that 1970 game between USC and Alabama, I spent four years as a counselor at

the Diamond B Football Camp, run by my coach at Redwood High, Bob Troppmann. Coach

Troppmann managed the San Francisco Coach of the Year Clinic for Duffy Daugherty and Bud

Wilkinson, which featured all the big name college coaches. Coach T could have been a national

football figure himself. Paul "Bear" Bryant of Alabama lent his name to his camp, stating that

when he wanted to learn what the latest innovations in the game were, he sought out Bob

Troppmann. Coach remained an unsung high school hero, but his influence on me and countless

others, both football players and ordinary students, is immeasurable.

As a high school football player I especially was attracted to USC assistant coach Marv Goux. I
wanted to be like Coach Goux. I wanted that fire, that energy. Football requires it, and this lesson
was imparted to me early on.
       I wanted to attend the University of Southern California. Color television was just

becoming popular, and the colors that emanated from national broadcasts of Trojan football
                                                                                                104
games from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum; against UCLA and Notre Dame; of

glorious, warm autumn Saturdays or bright Southland evenings; of beautiful cheerleaders and

tanned alumni dressed in beach attire; of the band and the feeling; well, let me tell you, it had a

real effect on me.

SOUTHERN CAL FORN A

       When you consider the way things transpired after I left Boston, it certainly is hard to

argue that I was not simply meant to be a Trojan, but was destined to be one. It starts with my

wife, Glena, and her family. Glena lived the vagabond life of a football coaches' wife while I

dragged her from one end of America to another; from the rural South to the Midwest; to the

freezing weather of Minnesota and Buffalo; from the bright lights of Manhattan to the heart of

the Red Sox Nation. Briefly, from 1995-96, we came home when I was the defensive coordinator
                                                                                                       106
of the San Francisco 49ers. Maybe that was my destiny, to coach the team I had rooted for

as a kid, but when opportunity presented itself in New England I went a different way. When

things did not work out with the Patriots, I might have second-guessed myself. I might have

asked whether I had blown it.

Instead I focused on my family. That meant moving to Palos Verdes Estates, California, the most
beautiful community in Los Angeles County if not the entire country. This is an area known as
the south bay, and it is where Glena grew up. I love the beaches, the boogie boarding, the sun,
surf and sand lifestyle of the South Bay. Finally, we were home. We have a daughter, Jaime.
Jaime was a volleyball star. When she chose a college, she chose USC, where her grandfather,
Glena's dad, had earned a graduate degree. I had married into a Trojan family before I was a
Trojan coach. I was on a path towards my destiny.
So, in 2000 I was on the USC campus a lot to watch Jaime play volleyball. Naturally, I ran into
the folks in the athletic department and on the football staff. It is a small fraternity and we all
knew each other. By fate, that was the year USC decided to make a change. They needed a new
football coach.
There were some good candidates out there, but one by one for whatever reason, a hire was not
made. There I was, hanging out on campus to watch my daughter play volleyball. I let them
know I wanted the job, and as fate would have it, I was hired. Why? In large part because I had
moved to Los Angeles so my wife could come home, and because my daughter was a Trojan like
her grandfather. Since then, my son Brennan joined my coaching staff. His younger brother Nate
entered USC. When they call it the Trojan family, they're not just kidding!
        Maybe that goes a long way towards understanding exactly What It Means to Be a

Trojan. It has been said that, "You're a Bruin for four years but a Trojan for life!" There is

something about the USC experience, whether it be the weather, Hollywood, the alumni

connections, the fact that it is a private school, but it is different. It is a family. Just ask Ken

Norton Jr., my linebackers coach. Ken was an All-American at UCLA and a star with the 49ers

when I coached there in the 1990s. He wanted to get into coaching but Karl Dorrell did not show

him any love over at Westwood, no matter how sincere Ken was about it. He came to USC and it

is as if this is where he has belonged all his life.

EMBODIIMENTOF WHAT IIT MEANS TO BE A TROJAN..
EMBOD MENT OF WHAT T MEANS TO BE A TROJAN
      Years ago, Coach Goux had instilled equal measures of fear and respect in the Trojan

players he recruited, coached and turned into men. Now I was very fortunate to get to know this

man up close and personal. He lived in Southern California, had grandkids at the University, and

was always around. I spoke to him almost every day for the last couple years of his life, before

he passed away far too early in 2002.

When people think of Marv, they think of his "blood and guts" image and imagine that he spoke
like George Patton exhorting his troops at the Battle of the Bulge, where Marv's own father gave
his life for the country that Marv loved every bit as much as he loved USC. But that is not how
Marv spoke to me. He did not sit in my office, his eyes bulging out, yelling at me to "run the
football, stuff 'em." Instead, what I got from Marv Goux was love and wonderful compassion,
that once you were a Trojan, you were always a Trojan. He had a love for USC and for Trojan
football that manifested itself like water irrigating a barren valley. There was spirituality in his
words and feelings. Marv believed in God, he loved God, and there was a connection between
his faith and his love for his school. It was undeniable and one of the most inspiring things I have
ever seen.
The man had heart, a big, big heart. He was a seeker of truth. He respected his colleagues, his
players, and his opponents enough to speak the truth, even if it meant he had to be tough. He
talked to me like I was part of his family, because at USC I was. When Marv was recruiting
players, he would show them his national championship rings, buy them steak dinners, and show
respect to their families, but he never led them down the primrose path. He would tell young men
that they had a choice, to either play with the best or against the best; that the road would be hard
and they would hate him at first; but that after four years, when they had a degree, a national
championship ring and a contract to play in the NFL, that hate would be replaced by love,
respect.
         That is still What It Means to Be a Trojan, because when we recruit a young man we do

not promise him the world or offer him every inducement to come and play for us. We do not

have to. We offer him a chance to be part of something special. We are looking for competitors

who are not afraid to battle for playing time because in the end that toughness will manifest itself

in victories over our opponents. Let other schools take the kids who are afraid to compete at

USC. That was Marv's philosophy and it is mine.

       It is not just because our film school is the best, and every big meeting in Hollywood

between producers, directors, agents and writers is dominated by Trojans.

It is not just because for years law students chose USC because in Los Angeles "all the top
judges are Southern California men," or that movers, shakers and corporate executives from all
over the globe received MBAs from USC.
                                                                                                 109
It is not just because political figures and international leaders from many countries learned
to love America at our school.
         No, it goes beyond all of that; beyond the numbers and the statistics, beyond the

empirical evidence. It is mystical. Spiritual perhaps. When I was a teenager, I felt the pull of the

University when I watched USC football games on color television. When I came down to see it

for myself, to watch the 1969 USC-UCLA game at the Coliseum and walk the campus, I

somehow knew what to expect. What I had seen on TV spoke to me, and when I stood there

amongst it, it was like Manifest Destiny. I mean, I was here, man!

       For Rodney Peete, growing up in Missouri, watching Anthony Davis's four-touchdown

performance as the Trojans scored 55 points in 17 minutes to beat Notre Dame in 1974; that was

his moment, the day he became a USC fan, and therefore dedicated himself to become their

quarterback.

       For me, it was Sam Dickerson's winning touchdown against UCLA in 1969, then Sam

"Bam" Cunningham's performance against Alabama a year later, but for so many Trojans,

especially kids from outside the state, it was the allure of the weather, the way it all looked on

TV with Keith Jackson seemingly the official announcer of the Trojan Empire. Thousands have

seen it, felt it, and when they finally got here, they too knew What It Means to Be a Trojan.

PROPOSED JOHN MCCAIN SPEECH
Written by STEVEN TRAVERS

                       AMERICA IS NOT A SOCIALIST COUNTRY

My fellow Americans, I wish to talk to you today about American history, because those who do
not remember the past are condemned to re-live it. Many of you may ask, Why would you wish
to dredge up the past when today's issues are so pressing? Because in searching for answers, it is
the unique nature of American Exceptionalism where we will find them.

Today, the economy is front and center among our greatest, most immediate concerns. For
political reasons, both the Democrats and the Republicans have tried to find quick fixes. The
stock market, the housing and loan crisis, took me by surprise as it did you and my opponent.
Both sides proposed radical, fast action.

I have long called my campaign the Straight Talk Express. Today it is time to live up to that
moniker. I went along with the "quick fix" solutions for votes. I was in a campaign and I needed
momentum. Now, I have had time to analyze the situation at greater length. A big man admits
when he is wrong. I was not entirely wrong, but the essential nature of the quick fix proposed has
changed the direction of this country from its basic nature to Socialism.

My opponent comes from a school of thought that says more government intervention is better.
He and this philosophy are wrong. That is why I am talking about history today, my friends,
because it is the lessons of history that explain more plainly than my present-day arguments why
my opponent's philosophy is not only wrong, but un-American.

Now is not the time for a drastic quick-fix solution that we will rue five, 10, 20 years into the
future. I have said in the past the basics of our economy are sound. I was vilified for this by my
opponent and placed on the defensive, but upon further reflection, I can say that our economic
fundamentals are sound. We are, despite my opponent's assertions, not on the verge of another
Great Depression. Sometimes, less is better than more. Sometimes, the turtle gets there ahead of
the hare.

Then all we had built was threatened by Civil War, but our greatness was not diminished,
Indeed, America became the place where slavery came to die. An institution that had thrived as
legitimate trade between nations for thousands of years could not survive our Constitution, the
rules and laws conceived, written and legalized by Americans. Rules were not imposed upon us
by conquering nations bent on embarrassing us for our sins, but rather self-imposed by
God-fearing people seeking to walk a path of righteousness, praying not that God be on our side,
but that we be on God's side.

Then came Westward expansion, and perhaps no other aspect of the American experience is as
unique and different from all previous assumptions of man as was the Gold Rush and the rugged
individualism that formed attitudes in the land that I settled in; the great frontier of Arizona,
California, Oregon, Washington, and the rest of West. The cowboy, the entrepreneur, the
capitalist, the man who lives off the land, who cares for it and cherishes its bounty; these were
the mythological figures that captured the imagination of the world.

But the revolutionary ideals of Rousseau would not die. When the United States went to war
with Mexico in order to consolidate control over the bountiful West, Henry David Thoreau,
author of Walden's Pond, began a movement of dissent against American ideals as he saw them.
As the industrial age drew people to the teeming cities, as Ellis Island overflowed with
immigrants, and as the population grew more diverse, revolutionary ideas sprouted in America.
