The Red Menace

The minute you come near the general vicinity of the outskirts of the ballpark of anything distantly resembling the lower levels of something approaching "wealth," you find to your surprise that they are already well in to the process of "redistributing" it to someone other than you. Why does anyone bother, in the end? Communists...

Ah-oh. This doesn't sound good.

When you own multiple briefcases, you should expect to pay taxes to help fund the wars on drugs and terrorism; that is how it is in the grown-up world. On the bright side, the ability to coordinate your trousers with a matching valise is a sure sign that you are in the general vicinity of the outskirts of the ballpark of something resembling wealth. Add a ridiculously long cigarette holder and top hat to the ensemble and you are within arms length of the turnstile of the ballpark. Thank goodness you still ride BART. That oughta keep you grounded.

Are Giants and A's tickets really THAT expensive, I mean here I got tickets to my local MLB franshise sitting 4 rows directly behind home plate for $35 a pop. I could sit in the outfield for as low as $12. That's where most people sit anyway, hoping to grab one of Adam Dunn's monster bombs (and he doesn't have a head the size of a beach ball either, like a certain Giant ;) ).

bleacher tickets for an a's game cost $12 a pop. it's not too pricey, but they were $10 last season.

frank, the way you talk about the "red menace," i swear you're obsessed with menstruation. that's ok.

Kendra, I'm just quoting Bertie Wooster's uncle Tom Travers's complaints about creeping socialism and iniquitous taxation.
