Steve Carlton was not only a greater pitcher than you, he is a better human being. Given his ravings about the Elders of Zion and how AIDS was created to kill blacks and gays, this would seem to be difficult. But Lefty, infamous for keeping his mouth shut as a player, in retirement also had the grace not to run for office and not to impose his deranged political opinions on the country, leading directly to the layoff of 2000 workers and an interruption in benefits that caused unthinkable hardship to hundreds of thousands.
You, sir, have one of the best health-care plans in the world and enough personal wealth not to need it. Not everyone is so lucky.
