“The true believer can believe in a political system, in a religious doctrine, or in a social movement that combines elements of the two, but the true believer cannot truly believe in life.
A true believer may worship Jehovah, Allah, or Brahma, the supernatural beings who allegedly created all life; a true believer may slavishly adhere to a dogma designed theoretically to improve life; yet for life itself – its pleasures, wonders and delights – he or she holds minimal regard.
Music, chess, wine, card games, attractive clothing, dancing, kites, perfume, marijuana, flirting, soccer, cheeseburgers, any expression of beauty, and any recognition of genius, or individual excellence: each of these things has been severely condemned and even outlawed by one cadre of true believers or another in modern time.”

Ozzie's emotional apology has moved me to offer one of my own. I have referred to Curt Schilling as an ass in several posts. Sorry, Curt. With Bobby Valentine available I did a disservice naming you.
