The [Monday] Papers

"There isn't going to be room for us bums." - Bill Veeck

"Last night, the Cubs won Game 5 of the World Series, and will return to Cleveland on Tuesday. Over the last three games at Wrigley Field, tens of thousands of people descended on the Lakeview neighborhood, many of them for the first time," MediaBurn notes.

"In this clip, bleacher regular Bill Veeck, who probably went to more than forty games in 1984, pokes fun at the fancy newcomers who showed up only for the postseason."

A Nobel Holiday
The convergence of Halloween with Bob Dylan winning a Nobel Prize in literature strikes me as a good time to recall Cameron Crowe's liner notes to Biograph, which begin this way:

A friend of mine was recently in Australia, where he attended a special costume party. The theme was simple. Everyone was requested to dress as a character from a Bob Dylan song. My friend went as Maggie's Brother, and he handed out nickels and dimes while asking everybody if they were having a good time. ("I ain't working for you no more," most responded.

During the course of the evening he met Louie the King, had an interesting conversation with a Diplomat who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat, and he mingled with a large and noisy crowd that included Einstein disguised as Robin Hood, the Queen of Spades, Napoleon in Rags, several Tambourine Men, and a Preacher with twenty pounds of headlines stapled to his chest.

Once again: Name a better artist ever. Shakespeare? DaVinci? Michaelangelo? I don't think so.

Shouldn't the tax-dodging corporations pay what they owe - and pay a fine for tax-dodging - instead of getting a huge tax break?
