Has there ever been a more emotional moment in baseball than the ceremony held to honor the great Lou Gehrig’s record for consecutive games, which came to an end at 2,130? At the age of 36, Gehrig was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, the debilitating disease that now bears his name. On July 4, 1939, before a capacity crowd, the New York Yankees retired Gehrig’s number 4 (he would be the first player in Major League Baseball history to receive that accolade), and gave him a plethora of gifts, plaques, and trophies. Gehrig addressed the crowd, telling them, “Fans, for the past two weeks you have been reading about the bad break I got. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.” The applause rang out and a clearly shaken Gehrig wiped the tears away, Babe Ruth embraced him, and the crowd chanted “We love you, Lou.”
11/11/2012 Efven when you want to leave the FBI you have to have a very excuse. The F.B.I. investigation that led to the resignation of David H. Petraeus as C.I.A. director began with a complaint several months ago about “harassing” e-mails sent by Paula Broadwell, Mr Petraeus’s biographer, to an unidentified third person, a government official briefed on the case said Saturday. When F.B.I. agents following up on the complaint began to examine Ms Broadwell’s e-mails, they discovered exchanges between her and Mr Petraeus that revealed that they were having an affair, said the official, who spoke of the investigation on the condition of anonymity. The person who complained about harassing messages from Ms Broadwell, according to the official, was not a family member or a government official. One Congressional official who was briefed on the matter said senior intelligence officials had explained that the F.B.I. investigation “started with two women.” I thank you Firozali A.Mulla DBA
Summing up the difference between Obama and Romney: Obama genuinely wants to make the world better, Romney genuinely just wants to win.
Disgusting. It makes me sick seeing Obama cry in front of his campaigners. If he wants to cry, he should be crying over the poor people in NY/NJ dumpster diving for food, freezing in the cold with no electricity. He is a disgrace.
