These have been running around my head today:
1) Albert Pujols is one of the truly great ballplayers in MLB these days. No question about it. Earlier today the Marlins offered a 10-year $200 million deal. Now we are hearing that the Cards have a counter-offer. He will be 32-years old in January. This will easily take him to his retirement old-age of 42. But is he- or any ballplayer- worth that much? I asked the question about Twins hometown favorite Joe Mauer last year. I ask it again. I guess Pujols is worth it if the market will bear it. Just that simple.
2) On a very different track I have also been considering the question whether the Church is to be all things to all people. I guess at this point I think the answer comes depending on how you use capitals and other such items of grammar...
Is The Church to be all things to all people?One, the first, is true.
Is a church to be all things to all people?
The other, the second, is impossible.
