Born in Cuba, Minoso became the first black Cuban-American in Major League Baseball and the first right handed, black player and former 3rd baseman to wear size 10 cleats and play left field for the Chicago White Sox in 1951, WGN noted. Hope that helps identify his importance.
On a serious note: good man and great base stealing threat.

Why have we been ‘asleep at the wheel’ for 100 years?
LOL. You're right, they were destroying images of false gods, I don't see why the blazers would be against this.
12 years of Catholic school and the nuns taught us about the Greek gods. Learning about the past helps us form the future.
No actually because no one is worshipping those things anymore. Essentially they're not religious pieces they're historical pieces. You never destroy those because you can learn from them and civilizations of the past.
The graven images thing doesn't really apply unless people are worshiping them
LOL- your'e right. Pajama boys throwing hissy fits should endear themselves further with the militant atheists that essentially do the same in the ether. And someone that posts all the damn time here, referring to others as blazers! LOL! What an infant!
Yea, you're right dlv, it's only right to destroy them if somebody actually cares about those statues in an intimate way. LOL

Satin is a great fabric, smooth and pleasing to the touch.

Statement from the VFW:
Target has a long-held corporate policy regarding donations. And in all fairness, Target contributes more than $2 million weekly to charitable causes and is one of the corporate sponsors for the 2003 tour of the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial Fund’s “The Wall That Heals.” “The Wall That Heals” is a traveling Vietnam Veterans memorial and museum that has a strong educational component for schools and serves to honor all our veterans.

It’s not my logic, it’s hers from a previous story. This story paraphrases her Christian Faith that saw her through. And, to say people aren’t judging her is to ignore many of these posts.

Satire – a difficult concept for many. : )

Why judge her harshly for what God called her to do?
I am not saying anything about what she did other than that she in fact made her own choice to do so. I commend her for doing so. I am simply pointing out that there are inherent risks in her choice and those risks should not be shifted to others, especially an entire country.
So you are saying it is God's fault? No one is judging her, just stating the fact she went to a dangerous place and paid for her ignorance
God called her to join a left wing, anti-American, anti-Semte organization, and then go to the middle east and hook up with a moeslem boyfriend? Is that what you are saying?
According to your logic... we should just drop the whole story because it was God that sent her to her death. God called her to go there, I'm sure he also called her to have a romantic relationship with Omar Alkhani too (when you said "God" did you mean Allah), and then to be captured and killed. God sure does work in mysterious ways... in your mind.
It's not my logic, it's hers from a previous story. This story paraphrases her Christian Faith that saw her through. And, to say people aren't judging her is to ignore many of these posts.
That WASN'T God that called her!
There is plenty of Gods work that needs done in this Country. Lets take care of our own.
All people are God's people

I thought we were against political correctness. Answer what you think and stand by your answer. Don’t like the journalist or his questioning, don’t do the interview.
It was a stupid question. Walker showed his intellect with a solid non-answer and re-direct. It's not like the idiot journo asked anything worth a comment. I'm sure if he could he would have said stick that question up your a$$. It has no place in this debate. Fact is the question about obama is becoming rather common don't you think? That in itself says a lot about what we are dealing with.
I thought we were against political correctness. Answer what you think and stand by your answer. Don't like the journalist or his questioning, don't do the interview.
That would have been nice but it also would have been stupid. There is no direct answer to that question that would not have gotten him in hot water, which is why the interviewer chose to ask him that question.
I think I'm one of the few that has identified "PC" for what it is: Behavior Modification. While I see no reason to play their game, I see no value in contesting it on trivial matters. Progressives are lemmings and need more lemmings. Their sole purpose now is to get the witch elected and trashing Walker on these "issues" is key to that. Last week it was his views on evolution....seriously?

Way to speak for every man in a heterosexual relationship, because we’re all the same, you know.
