The All-Star Game has come and gone...sadly. The National League lost to the American League tonight, 7-5. It will be now eight years that the American League will have had home-team advantage at the World Series, something I hoped would change with tonight's game, but I guess there is always next year. The game itself was pretty exciting. John Smoltz took the loss for the National League, but another Brave, Andruw Jones had a stellar night with a 2-run homer. All in all I was impressed with the performance of the National League and just as impressed with the performance of the American League and MVP Tejada. It just doesn't get any better than this.
Next alliterative element of the post title...leaks. I'm sure by now you've all heard about Karl Rove and the supposed CIA leak. When I hear Rove's name I never take it too seriously. Maybe it's time I should. But then again in Washington they investigate EVERYTHING, so this could just be a fluke, or it could be real criminal charges against the Bush ally and deputy chief-of-staff. I would recommend reading The Washington Post for further information, I don't have a lot of info right now.
And the reason for my lack of information...I'm wrapped up in a few things for the moment. Mostly this crazy little (who am I kidding it's huge) scholarship essay for the Lincoln Forum. By the 31st of this month I have to have this essay written on what may have happened had Lincoln not been assassinated. Okay, in my head and on paper I've probably answered this question a million times when it comes to the Kennedy assassination, but I've never looked so deeply into the Lincoln assassination. I've been deep into the Sandburg biography. I love Sandburg. I still contend that the greatest thing to happen while LBJ was in office was the awarding of the Congressional Medal of Freedom to Carl Sandburg. Anyway, I've been researching and today I finally got my works cited page done. It's rolling along, but it might take me to the deadline to tweak it . Be patient with the posts for history calls.
