Joseph's Left One

It can really be devastating to realize that you've been making excuses for someone all along. And doing that for some people has much more far-reaching consequences than excusing a ball player.



Yes, I thought about ending the post (or titling it): "This isn't really about Pete Rose." But I think most people will probably figure that out. BTW, love your blog.


Maybe this comment should be cross-posted to your NOM song of the week thread, but your post above reminds me of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here", especially the lines

"And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?"


I wrote about Pete Rose lying In January of 2004. (see http://www.annporter.com/weblog/2004/01/i-havent-written-in-over-week-despite.html. )I carefully segmented Mormon stuff from my personal blog, so there aren't any Mormon undertones. But really, I've felt the same way about the church as I felt about Pete. I wanted to believe I was wrong.
