Did I say that out loud?

Texas Rangers' $252 million man, Alex Rodriguez, was quoted earlier in the week as saying that he would return 30-40 percent of his exorbitant salary if it would help the current situation in baseball.

Well, after further review (scroll to bottom of story), Rodriguez has reconsidered.

At Yankee Stadium, Texas shortstop Alex Rodriguez backtracked from his comments Friday that he would give back 30 to 40 percent of his pay if it would improve the sport.

"I'm willing to do my part. Thirty to 40 percent? Probably not. I was speaking off the cuff," said Rodriguez, who signed a record 10-year, $252 million deal in December 200.

"What I wanted to say is I love the game of baseball and would do anything to help it. Obviously, that was a very drastic statement. I wouldn't take it literally."

He would do anything to help it...as long as it doesn't affect his pocketbook.

It is now an inevitability that whatever the story, however complex its details, members of the American press will react by announcing who must be forbidden to speak going forward. https://www.nationalreview.com/2022/11/when-journalists-become-speech-police/

Rep.-elect John James (MI) and Rep.-elect Wesley Hunt (TX) are close friends and are first two Black graduates of West Point to enter Congress. They are even from the same class! Both Republicans. No surprise there have been almost zero national media profiles of either or both.
