On Sweeps and Bill O'Reilly

This is kind of a strange post, but I'm in a strange mood today.

First off, our unpredictable Florida Marlins...fresh off a demoralizing and near knockout butt-whipping at the hands of the last-place Washington Nationals, do nothing less than bounce back and sweep the world champs in their own ballpark. Talk about saving a season!

One of the most misunderstood people in America today is Bill O'Reilly. Demonized by many on the left as some sort of species slightly below Satan, feelings about Mr. O'Reilly are extremely polarized. However, for anyone that has read any of his books or watches his show more than just every once in a while, it becomes apparent that there's more to the man than his bloviating, sometimes curmudgeon presence suggests.

Case in point: an article in this week's Parade Magazine. For all the things I disagree with President Obama about, I can't and won't deny the fact that his rise to the top is an inspirational story. This is not lost on Bill O'Reilly and he lays it out right here. Also, Parade discovers the nice guy in O'Reilly. There's more than one reason why The O'Reilly Factor is #1 in the ratings and his books are best-sellers.
