Bud Selig joins Bowie Kuhn and the other immortals in the Baseball Hall of Fame. As King Kaufman said, “Can you remember the last time you went nine months without hearing the words ‘firestorm of controversy’ in relation to something Bud Selig did?” He was a Godawful commissioner, but it turns out he did something even worse. As the news story says,
He repeatedly said he never would become commissioner, but he blocked Texas Rangers owner George W. Bush from taking the job, leading Bush to run for governor of Texas and later president.

Wayne Alyn Root used to advertise in the pro football mags that he could tell us how to beat the point spread. Unfortunately, he encountered Donald Trump, who dragged him down to his level. He is now touting a radical new approach to voting in which welfare and Medicare recipients and women who get free contraception would be disenfranchised because they have a “conflict of interest.” That would presumably reduce the electorate to the impartial voters who merely get tax breaks, the chance to declare bankruptcy, and bailouts if they have truly gargantuan losses at the Wall Street Casino, and then maybe Trump could actually win. It wouldn’t work.

We will soon have Yelp for people. One ray of hope: "You can’t opt out — once someone puts your name in the Peeple system, it’s there unless you violate the site’s terms of service."

Thanx to Metafilter

Perhaps a heavy-handed sf satirist, trying to create a dystopia combining the worst of free enterprise and the state, might have imagined the grotesque idea of turning the prisons over to private companies. She might then have imagined a War on Some Drugs to support the industry. But could she have been sick enough to dream up a plot twist where the prisons sued the government for not arresting enough people?

Thanx to Dale K. Hanes on Facebook
