I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt. I believe in the American legal principle of innocent until proven guilty. I try not to leap to a conclusion, especially when there are ramifications to that conclusion. But there comes a point and that is what I want to discuss today. Continue reading At What Point?
Baseball players and serious fans often refer to the major leagues as “The Show”. The major leagues are where the biggest rewards (fame and fortune) are as well as where the spotlight shines the brightest. Boot a grounder in Class A ball and only a few hundred people will ever know.

It is impossible for me to cover everything that happened in under 1,000 words so I’ll take brief a look a few things. Come along. Continue reading While I Was “Gone”
One of the latest names to burst on to the political scene is Foster Friess. He is the chief financial backer of Rick Santorum’s campaign. Although he has recently hit the radar screen he is by no means a newcomer to the political money game. He seems to be enjoying his fifteen minutes of fame. I want my readers to start making him pay the price for it. Continue reading Rated R – Brandywine Funds
