Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

The World Series Is Over, But I Have Baseball Questions

From MLB spokesperson, about the $5,000 donation to Senate candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith: "The contribution was made in connection with an event that MLB lobbyists were asked to attend. MLB has requested that the contribution be returned."

"Mississippi history at its best!"

her all-white Lawrence County Academy.
Nice Confederate flag!

1.  Why does Major League Baseball have lobbyists?

2.  To which organizations does MLB make donations?

3.  Why does MLB make contributions to politicians?

4.  Why on earth did MLB give $5000 to the racist Mississippi Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith?  Couldn't find a better candidate?  Must not have been trying very hard.  What the hell sort of "event" did Cindy invite the lobbyists to attend?

5.  Since they have obviously low standards for making donations, will MLB give $5000 to me?
