8/27 Chemistry class

Lou Piniella did not want to comment on Milton Bradley’s statement that he prays the games only go nine innings so he can spend the least amount of time possible on the field and then go home. However, Piniella did say this year’s Cubs team has not been one of the better mixes chemistry-wise that he’s had.

First, any reaction to Bradley’s comments?

“I can’t speak for Milton,” Piniella said Thursday.

A reporter said it seems as if Bradley doesn’t want to be with the Cubs.

“He’s getting paid to play,” Piniella said. “I’m getting to paid to put out a lineup and that’s exactly what I’m doing.”

Was Piniella upset to read those comments?

“We’ve had enough problems here with injuries and so forth that we don’t really need any more controversy of any sorts,” Piniella said. “That speaks for itself.”

Back to the issue of chemistry, does winning breed that or do players need to take charge in the clubhouse?

“Winning has a lot to do with chemistry,” Piniella said. “It makes a team come together a lot quicker. I told you all this spring, we had a big turnover. Sometimes it takes a while. It doesn’t necessarily fall in your lap, you know? This hasn’t been one of my better chemistry teams. Look, is that the reason, we’re winning or losing baseball games? No, I don’t think so. You can go beyond that.”

Piniella said the Yankees teams he played on in the late ’70s didn’t have great chemistry off the field, but on the field, they played as a team.

“When you start looking at chemistry, on the field chemistry is the best chemistry you can have,” Piniella said.

Earlier this season, Piniella, who turns 66 on Friday, was criticized by some in the media for losing the fire to manage. He said on Thursday that he’s learned to look the other way over the years.

“I’ve addressed everything that needs to be addressed here,” he said. “I don’t know what else I could do. Look, invariably when things don’t go right it’s always the manager’s fault. You want to blame me? Take your shots. It doesn’t bother me one bit. I’m the same manager I was this year that I was last year that I was the year before. Same manager. No different. When you don’t win, somebody’s got to stand up and be the scapegoat. If you all want to say it’s the manager, say it’s the manager. Fine with me.”

Personally, I have been trying to give MB the benefit of the doubt all season. I like Fukudome, though his first season here pittered out. I had a feeling he’d do better this season, and he has. I hope he does even better next season. By the same token, I want to be support of Bradley, but by insulting a few fans and insinuating that they represent the whole, undercuts fans who are trying to support him or at least not give up on him completely (he did have the highest OBPS last year in the AL). I’m not excusing people being rude, that’s just the way some people are, but it’s like Bradley is trying to actively pit everybody against him.

Lou does not need to go anywhere…Hendry needs to be canned and should have to take Bradley with him and foot the $20MM bill. Hands down the worst move the cubs have made in the last 10 years. The problem with this team is that there are too many over hyped, underachieving “superstars.” Bradley, Soriano and Zambrano have 3 of the biggest ego’s in baseball and they take after Sosa and only care about their own production, numbers, etc.

Canuck Cubbie fan.
There are a couple of loonies on this year’s team, but Lou isn’t one of them. He’s got a tough job when the millionaires can’t do what they’re paid to do, and it’s not up to him to change their psyches – only those individuals can do it. What would you do – bench the non-producers and keep paying their outrageous incomes? Get off Lou’s case and keep ragging the organization about the duds he has to work with. Maybe the powers that be will prune the deadwood and spare us another year like this one.

The numbers say it all: 124 games in the books and Bradley has 11 HR and 35 RBI. Rarely gets the key hit to start or prolong a rally. He doesn’t like the Cubs, Cubs’ fans, Chicago, whatever. Where/Who does he like? His record speaks for itself.

Seems to me, he is getting exactly what he wants: attention.

Carrie,

I have been idly sitting here listening to and watching the comments by other fans on this site, and hearing what some of the media have to say. I personally am sickened by the way alot of our fans are acting. There is no reason at all to be tearing a man down just because he is not doing what everyone expects him to. How can someone expect a guy like Bradley to come here, get criticized before he ever takes the field, get treated like crap and then perform? It’s not going to happen. Same goes for Soriano, everyone is entitled to a bad year, and the way baseball works as Bob Brenly put it, your paid to fail 7 out of 10 times a year. Where the heck can you get that kind of recognition for failure. No where, and these fans need to backup and support our Cubs.

If your a true Cubs fan, win or lose, you support this team. If you cant, then go find another team, We need respect for our players, and if they cant get respect, encouragement, and support, then dont expect a world series, because it’s not always about money. The intangibles are much more important.

Also, if you read this Carrie, please send Milton Bradley a message from me, a guy who is not racist or treats people like crap. Milton, no matter what these people say, you have shown that you can be a good player, and have tried your hardest. I support you, as a fan, and give my respect, especially after putting up with crap you are dealing with.

I’m a blind computer tech, so I know how poorly people can treat someone because things aren’t going their way. Just blow it off, your better than that. and these fans need to goow the hell up.

I WAS TOLD A LONG TIME AGO THAT A LEOPARD CAN’T CHANGE HIS SPOTS. M BRADLEY IS PROVING THAT STATEMENT CORRECT. HE HAS BEEN TROUBLE AT EVERY STOP ON HIS TRAIL THROUGH MAJOR LEAGUE TEAMS, SO WHY SHOULD THIS BE DIFFERENT? I GO BACK TO WHAT I SAID A FEW DAYS AGO. WHAT WAS JIM HENDRY THINKING?

Cub fans are the worst in the business. Ironically, it has nothing to do with them booing MB or anyone else. It has everything to do with them accepting and supporting mediocrity, losing, and zero effort on behalf of many overpaid Prima Donnas.

How are they supporting it? By filling the ballpark day after day, year after year. Philly fans are the grittiest in baseball. The expect players to give 100% everyday…Guess what? They got a ring last year!

Cardinal fans are knowledgable, polite and supportive — hey, they are #2 in WS championships and are competitive EVERY year — what’s to complain about.

Stop giving your money to an overrated, overhyped marketing machine and see how quickly the team improves.

Would you continue to patronize a restaurant to served terrible food? I think not.

Cubs Addict, I am taking my ball and finding a new park. I refuse (after 32 years) to follow a team bent only on filling a park and not winning championships.

Adios, Aurevoir, C Ya,

Seems to me when Koskie was leading off & Bradley was batting 5th the Cubs went on a little tear. IDK why Lou fiddled w/ the line-up batting Bradley 2nd but albeit it has benefited him the team, as a whole, has dropped in the standings.

Isn’t it kinda the managers or coaches job to spot this sort of faulty chemistry in our line-up?

Not sure what Hendry was thinking when he signed Bradley. Granted, he had a great year last year and the Cubs needed a left-handed bat, but his psychological issues have been persistent and well-documented over the years. Here is a man determined to be unhappy, and inevitably it effects others around him. Was DeRosa really so terrible against right-handers? Hendry has made some good moves (Aramis, D.Lee, Dempster, Lily), but the cancer that is Milton Bradley should have been anticipated and avoided. The Cubs should be trying to unload some of their underperformers right now to the contenders. It’s time to clean house. Zambrano is pushing 30, but he has the emotional maturity of a 9-year old. His schtick is starting to wear thin…and in additional to his mental fragility, he seems to be rather physically fragile for someone who should be in the prime of his career. And let’s not overlook Fukudome, who obviously will never be able to hit a Major League outside breaking pitch–this should have been revealed by competent scouting well before they wrote him the huge check. It’s sad, but I think the jury is in–new ownership should ask Hendry to resign.

I HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT CHEMISTRY ALL YEAR…OR RATHER THE LACK THEREOF FOR THE CUBS…

When Hendry thought it was a good idea to trade DeRosa, Marquis, Cedeno and Blanco for “more talented players,” he should have thought twice. Team chemistry is something that you CANNOT BUY and it something that should be valued above all else when you just watched the group win 97 wins without breaking a sweat. I have been on teams where on paper we were weaker than an opponent yet we CRUSHED THEM because we played as a TEAM, a tight-knit group of guys. YEAH, it sucks that the Cubs choked in the playoffs, but that doesn’t mean that he needed to freak out in dump all the right handed players (and on top of that bring in the ANTITHESIS of team chemistry, Milton Bradley, who I don’t disagree is passionate and talented, but MY GOSH is he as depressing individual)…

Look, I don’t disagree with anyone that said that DeRo was just an above average player, but his clubhouse presence was something that has obviously shown to be larger than realized in his absence than it did while he was around…perhaps Jim Hendry should have thought twice about the value of team chemistry rather than raw talent…AND WHO CARES THAT THE LINE UP WAS “TOO RIGHT HANDED!!!” I bet left handed lineup this year doesn’t even score 2/3 of the runs they did last season…I honestly told people in January that we would have a near .500 year, even with all the huge contract players, because they are not a TEAM…they are just talented players wearing the same uniform

All that being said…Hendry is a human being who made mistakes, just like we all do everyday. I and WE need to all remind ourselves that he is the one that brought together the 97 win team in the first place, as well as our current faces of the team. This season, unfortunately was just the culmination of this year’s off-season moves. As much as we would all like to see him get fired because of this season’s results…we have to remember what he did with a team that was a constant 3rd to last place in the division program…that being said…I think it’s going to take some major moves now to clean up the mess that was created and I think it is going to take a couple of rebuilding years now, where we fans are going to have to part ways with the likes of big contract players that we all love like Derrek Lee, Ted Lilly, etc, in order to afford the AWFUL and AWFULLY EXPENSIVE players like Soriano, and still be able to rebuild with young talent.

Just a little tidbit to feed the fire of those who are already bitter…Last night Soriano made 120,000 dollars to appear in the game…Theriot…only 3,000

If on-the-field chemistry is important, can someone tell me where the current team’s is? Watch the guys when they’re 3 runs down – they looked whipped. Or just plain old exhausted. Is it a training issue?

Or have they spent their millions in ways that are counterproductive to their on-the-field performance? And is there a correlation between pay and performance? Fuld, Hill, and Fox play like they think it all matters, and I’m betting they’re amongst the lowest paid players.

Zambrano and Soto look out of shape – and have played that way. Soriano has no idea where the strike zone is. Bradley shouldn’t be surprised that he gets booed when his whole on-the-field attitude is “who gives a flying leap?”

I still think the Cubbies would benefit from a good sports pyschologist.

I’m so sick of hearing “chemistry not good”. Look, this team wins together and loses together. One player is not going to “rock the clubhouse”. A lot of poor decisions were made in the off-season, during spring training and through out the whole season. No one player is responsible for the poor, inconsistent play this season. Lou is as much as responsible for what has occurred on the field, as much the poor play “FROM EVERYONE”. Do I want to see back in 2010, you betcha. Do I want to see MB back, no and not because of him, but I want to see a “lower profile player in RF”, that way the Bud-drinking idiots, who call themselves Cub fans (their not, their Wrigley fans, basking in glory of the old ball park, because its the “Chicago thing to do”), can stop complaining about how much “CASH” is being paid out to one player.

If all you want to worry about something in the off-season, don’t worry about Lou or who’s going to be on the field in 2010. No worry about “Ricketts”. Has anyone heard what type of “game plan” this guy has? Does anyone know for sure what type “budget” he has in mind for the Cubs? Does anyone know if he has “blown is cash-cap” to buy the Cubs? That scares me more than anything this happening right now, or that will happen after the season ends.

Blame MLB baseball in part with its guaranteed contracts unlike the NFL. And although that works across all of MLB, the Cubs traded away team players like Wood and DeRosa who were important in the dugout. Soriano, Zambrano, and Bradley don’t care if the team wins or not. And the team gets disillusioned with a closer (?) like Gregg. What a shame they didn’t three-peat with the same team from 2008!

Lou played on late 1970’s Yankees teams with chemistry that could be described best as toxic. They succeeded the Oakland A’s who, by most accounts, had even worse team chemistry. The 1980’s Mets won a lot while hating a lot. Meanwhile, by the current Pirates and Nats have great team chemistry by all accounts. This does not mean that you need BAD chemistry to win: but chemistry is random with respect to wins, and it always has been.

Remembering Jim Hendry’s “Success” (or luck?) doesn’t cut it. Sure he’s human and will make mistakes just like we all do everyday….but how many mistakes can “we all” make “every day” ON THE JOB before getting fired for doing such a miserable JOB? Regardless if Hendry or “we all” are the nicest people in the world. If we all had employers like Hendry’s we would all be secure no matter how many mistakes we make. He needs to go. The Ramirez and Lee acquistions he made in no way are enough to justify keeping him after what he did over the winter. And since when is being COMPLETLEY DISCUSTED with primadonna, overpaid, under-acheiving ball players AND GM’s not supporting your team?? C’mon cubsaddict, whether we go to games and financially contribute to this mis-managed organization or stay home and watch on T.V. WE ARE FANS!!! And we want the best for this team including QUALITY PLAYERS that don’t go cryin’ to the media, throw balls in the stand with only two outs, make basket catches and continue to run for two minutes to gain a spotlight, hop when catching routine fly balls, not to mention run hard on the bases, run after balls in the outfield..ahhhh forgettaboutit….I’m just a fan or not or am or not or am…

As for Bradley, his OBP since April has been over 0.400. The Cubs offensive problem is overly low OBP. Sorry, but Milton has not been the problem: it has been the string of easy outs in most of the order.

Oh my God, I want what you’re drinking chitown!!!

cubswoowoo,

One of the worst that you could do is generalize a Cubs Fan. Not all Cubs are bashing the Cubs. But as far as MB is concerned, he expected 30 million (no less) to PLAY here and now that he can’t perform as a 30 million dollar player, are we not allowed to boo him or let him know how displeased we are with his performance? I agree with you about being rude and giving MB crap, but I can’t understand how you cannot see how helpless we are as Cubs Fans to be hostage to him and Soriano for several years to come. Doesn’t anyone understand the reason why everyone is so mad about this??? This is a message I put in yesterdays MB rant…
Milton, your statement about the nine inning rush is the wrong answer. When do we Boo Jake Fox??? When do we Boo Randy Wells??? Answer: We Don’t. Why? Because they are doing their part to help the Cubs WIN!!!!! What have you done to help the Cubs WIN??? You think you DESERVE that $30 Million. For what??? You’re past success has NOTHING to do with the dollars that the Cubs are giving you NOW. You’re getting Booed because you and Soriano have taken the this Cubs Organization hostage with your lack of offense and your arrogance of believing that you’ve EARNED that paycheck each week. The reason why you can look in the mirror and believe that everything is fine is because of that paycheck. I personally could not look at myself in the mirror knowing that I’ve basically stole money from my employer. With that being said getting Booed is the least of your problems. You may have to check that spine. Also, get a new mirror… perhaps one that tells you how to contribute to this team and mesh it back together instead of making more drama for yourself.
Are the fans booing Fukudome anymore… No. Why because he’s trying to EARN his money now, rather than expecting respect because I walked onto the field. I’m in the Navy, and I don’t expect ANYONE to respect me cause I’m in Uniform. I get respect because I Love What I Do and Love this Country. Therefore, I will defend my Country till my dying day. I don’t get 30 million or 1 million, but I respect my job. Respect is Earned, not GIVEN… not like 30 million dollars.

If you notice, Lou has begun to speak in code. “”Winning has a lot to do with chemistry,” Piniella said. “It makes a team come together a lot quicker. I told you all this spring, we had a big turnover. Sometimes it takes a while. It doesn’t necessarily fall in your lap, you know? This hasn’t been one of my better chemistry teams…”

Translated: Jim Hendry f$#@%d with my 97-win team and what the he*& do you expect me to do with this sad-a@# group of has-beens and also-rans?” The team has about a half-dozen players who play well and could have a team built around them, namely Ramirez, Theriot, Lee, Wells, Marshall, …okay I could come up with five. But add Fulk, Hoffpower, and a couple of guys from triple A and you’ve got a start. I hate to say it again, but Hendry’s trading DeRosa, Wood, and Marquis, not to mention who they got for these guys shows his incompetence. Lou’s not to blame, he’s only showing the result of the bad moves. DeRosa!

Guys, we cant keep laying blame on people. Milton Bradley is not the problem here, its injuries. Milton is a great player and I agree with the guy above who said your not going to get performance out of someone when his own hometown is booing him and giving him a hard time. Give the guy a break and give Lou a break too. Their both doing a fine job however Milton can do a lot better and he will, so will the rest of our team. Please, dont give up on this team I know its been hard and we’ve seen a lot of close ones slip away but hey thats baseball. You guys need to back off on Bradley, Soriano and Zambrano you have no idea the pressure their feeling so give them a break for crying out loud. the Cards are on a killer streak right now, but the Cubs when they get back on track are even better and we all know it. Dont give up Cubs fans were still in this one.

chitown2121,

No one is giving up on our Cubbies. I still think we have a chance at the wild card, but this isn’t about putting blame. It’s about being a team player instead of just collecting a pay check and laughing all the way to the bank while putting the blame on your fans (MB) or admitting that you have no more in the tank and for the next several years you’re going to pretend you have what it takes to compete and collect a a pay check as well (Sori).

Well said john14six.

chitown2121: What an enabler you are!! Milton can do a lot better…when has he? He was a wasted trade and we’ll be saddled with his sorry butt for way too long. Wah wah wah!!! Of course I have no idea of the pressure they’ve got…I work for a living and don’t cry that my peers and clients don’t like me. I don’t claim racism for those who expect me to do my job that I get paid gobs of money for. The Cubs are not going to catch the Cards or the Rockies. We’ll be lucky if they catch a cold. Put a fork in it, it’s done! As a friend told me last week. We’re not waiting for next year, but practicing for it. DeRosa.

Bam! Right on the money cubbeeblue! I mean, we’re talkin’ about Milton Bradley here chitown!!!! EVERYBODY AND THEIR GRANDMOTHER knew about his baggage except of course for you and Hendry…YOU’RE Hendry…aren’t you???!!!?!?!!???

Milton Bradley is a piece of %$#@! We all knew he is a cry baby, little #$@%, that cant handle pressure or any adversity. Hendry is a moron! Please, please, get him out of here! I’ve never seen a team with worse chemistry. The fricken Nationals mesh better than we do. I dont want to believe Lou has anything to do with it, but I just dont know. I hope that right fielder breaks something and can never play again. I feel sorry for anybody who signs him and his family. Just a punk!

And…Are some of you blind? Your blaming the fans for his performance? You’ve got to be kidding me. He makes ten million a year and he cant handle fans booing him when he is clearly, terrible! If I f’d up my job that bad, I’d get fired! But since he is an athelete he has to have the fans behind him in order to perorm? Get the #%$@ out a here. At the beginning of the season, we were all behind him and He sucked. So how does that make sense? Sorry but I dont even want them to make the playoffs. They dont deserve to. Yeah they’ve had injuries, but every team has. We really need to clean house and get some players that WANT to be here and arent these so called “superstars” that are just overpaid winers.

WHY IS BRADLEY THE MAIN FOCUS OF SOME FAN ABOUT HIS PASSION AND THE LIKE OF CHEMISTRY ON THIS YEAR CUB BRADLEY DO PLAY HARD HE BEEN ON BASE MORE THAN ANY CUB THIS MONTH HE IS TRYING TO GET BETTER IN THE OUT FIELD THAT MORETHAN I CAN SAY FOR SORIANO YES HE HAS MADE BONEHEADED MISTAKES BUT EVERYBODY DOES BRADLEY IS VERY HARD ON HIS SELF FOR NOT GET IT DONE WE THE FANDONOT GIVE HIM CREDIT FOR TRYING WE WAITED FOR NEXT YEAR WHEN WE GOT SORIANO,SOSA AND A FEW OTHER FREE AGENTS TO GET IT TOGATHER THE FIRST YEAR THIS CUB TEAM STINK BECAUSE NO ONE THAT MEAN HENDRY,LOU OR THE PLAYER GOT THE JOB DONE THIS NOT ONE BRADLEY FAULT BY HIS SELF WHEN A TEAM PLAYS WITH A LIKE OF FIRE AND PASSION AND UNITY IT BOUND TO FELL UNITY AND LOVE FOR THE GAME IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS PN LIFE

Boy nbriggs413 Bradley must have really pushed your button!!! I wouldn’t go as far as wishing him break something (unless it’s Hendry’s cell phone so he can’t call up another GM!!! Ha!) but I understand your frustration and you echo my point about being fired if you screw up at you job. But Hendry? ANOTHER “CONTRACT” employee who seems to be immune from the pink slip. I think you and I would be the first to fire Hendry and then bench Bradley or send him home with his ten million because he sure has heck wouldn’t be contaminating MY ballclub. At least Soriano keeps quiet during his most abysmal season ever, showing SOME respect for us fans.

CUB FAN LET TAKES SOME OF THE BLAME FOR SOME OF BRADLEY ATTIUDE ACTION TOWARD US WE DID NOT ACCEPT THE BASEBALL PLAYER BECAUSE WE WANTED TO JUDGE HIM ON HIS PASSION AS A PERFECTION OF HIS SELF AND NOT HIS LOVE FOR THE GAME WE THE FAN NEED TO STOP JUDGE PLAYER BE FOR WE KNOW THEM WE DID NOT SHOW BRADLEY ANY LOVE OR RESPECT BEFORE THE SEASON STARTED BUT WE WANTED HIM TO LOVE AND RESPECT US DO ON TO OTHER AS YOU WISH THEM TO DO ON TO YOU

Roman, Bradley only “appears” to be the “main focus” because he sticks his foot in his mouth to the media and it gets hyped. When you are playing bad the best route to take is humility not anger. You are absolutley correct regarding the blame belongs to more than Bradley. It also rests squarley with Pinella and Hendry. However, Hendry being the one that “built” (ha.) this team is much more responsable than either Bradley, Pinella or even Miles for that matter. I believe for the most part Lou’s hands have been tied much more so by HENDRY than Hendry’s hands being tied by “The sale of the team”, that’s a garbage, lame excuse given by people that want to circumvent or deflect the blame from Hendry.

To roman121: I’m on Bradley because of his comments. I NEVER said it was all his fault the team is bad and they had no chemistry. Did you not read where I said CLEAN HOUSE. You dont clean house with one person. He’s part of the problem and needs to get out of town. I just cant stand how he is always complaining about something. Yeah, he’s trying. I’m not knocking that. He just needs to shut his mouth and play. Just like joeydafish said, “Soriano keeps quiet”. Did you not hear what he said? How can you be a true cub fan and not take offense to that? And joey, your right. I dont wish he breaks something. I went a little to far with that.

TONBRIGG YES HE PUT HIS FOOT IN HIS MOUTH WE ALL DO LET TRY TO UNDERSTAND BRADLEY I BELIEVE BRADLEY IS MORE DOWN ON HIS SELF THAN THE FAN ARE SO LET BACK OFF AND SEE IF HIS ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS

Attaboy/girl nbriggs413, we Cubs fans can get a little overzealous with our passion for OUR TEAM, but we are the most deserving fans in all of baseball and are just SO TIRED of “qualified” people whether players or executives screwing around with our team!!!! Argghhhhh!!! WE DO PAY ATTENTION, to everything from player attitude to stupid trades, to minor leauge performances. So, everybody drawng a paycheck because of OUR TEAM, put up or shut up! And the first to shut up should be a toss up between Bradley (whining about the fans) and Hendry (whining about the players not performing as “we” expected). By the way Jim, who’s the “we” you are referring to in some of your published comments? YOU and…uh, uh MAYBE Lou? Becacuse “we” fans certainly KNEW how Bradley, Miles, Heillman, Fontenot, Soriano etc. would perform. Ahhh, why don’t you break a…ooops, gettin’ a leeeeeeeeeeeeetle overzealous myself. Break your cell phone, computer, fax EVERYTHING that would enable you to continue your onslaught of ‘managing” OUR TEAM.

So, if we all back off commenting on WHAT A BAD JOB HENDRY IS DOING, he too will perform better??? Yeesh. It’s all our fault Roman, You’ve shown me the light!!!
Yeesh.

JOEYDAFISH I WILLTAKE THE BLAME BECAUSE MY OVER VIEW OF THE CUB IS WHAT IT IS WE ALL HAVE A VOICE AGREE OR DIS AGREE BUT SOMETIME WE NEED TO STEP BACK BECAUSE PASSION FOR OUR CUB MAKE US FORGET THAT THESE MILLION BABYS HAS FEELING TO THEY HAVE A GOOD AND A BAD SIDE JUST LIKE WE DO WE MUST LOVE THEM REGARLESS DO NOT GET ME WRONG WE ARE NOT TO LOVE LOSSING BUT OUR TEAM THAT IS WHAT SEPERATE A REAL FAN FROM A FAIR WEATHER FAN

If we removed all the emotion from these discussions and based our evaluation of players, manager and GM on performance and results alone, most would get a thumbs down from us. I contend that Hendry still leads the pack. But, emotions are what drives us as FANS. What are we supposed to do as we all watch these incompetant “employees” run our team into the ground setting the stage for what? Another hundred years? Are we just supposed to sing Kumbaya (forgive my spelling?) and go on accepting mediocrity???
