Joe Torre, straight from his gig at the Learning Annex, provides some appropriate perspective on the A-Rod frenzy in—of all places—the pages of the New York Post. Joe’s take: It’s not A-Rod, it’s not the Sox, it’s not RSN, it’s not the media. It’s, like, all of us. Ouch.
It covers everywhere. Check our music lately, there is not a whole lot of (class) that goes on there. As a whole, there is a lack of respect. It’s unfortunate and I know that I speak for my generation, but it’s reality. I don’t know. It certainly is against the grain for me.—Joe Torre
We’re sorry, Mr. Torre. Won’t you please forgive us? Please. We promise to behave this time. No more Brittany. No more Page Six. No more Gawker. We’re cancelling our US Weekly subscription. Really.
