Yes the Sun is shining in Mudville today.  The Baseball writers got it right today.  Both Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn won easy election to Baeeball Hall of Fame.  Goose Gossage finished a respectable and promising third.

On the dark side, one hundred one hundred twenty-eight, apparently brain damaged, baseball writers actually voted for Mark McGwire, the noted drug abuser and liar.  Further, the AP writer, Ronald Blum, got the lede wrong.  Instead using Ripken as the lede, Blum used the drug abuser Gwire.  Then getting the lede in an article abouit the Hall of Fame is as close as McGwire will ever get to Cooperstown without a ticket.
