    Like the 1919 Black Sox for example?

    I remember when the newspapers in general were all about important events, not which plastic “glamour” teen got what tattoo, where.

    Should call it “mess media” now.

    What is this ‘newspaper’ of which you speak?

    I strongly doubt you remember it.

    Hah! An accurate commentary…. but also too sad and too true.

    I hope you are joking. But if you are not….
    The news used to only be printed on a certain type of paper. The sheets used to be about (in inches) 28X28.

    Why aren’t the Boy Scouts promoted more? I was shanghaied onto the football team and placed in inferior math classes with no books or teaching. If I was shanghaied into Boy Scouts instead, it would have been a lot better for me. Of course it’s all about the teacher/coaches and their ambitions. But that isn’t going to help many kids, no matter what they say. If my mother isn’t giving me food, football just increases my caloric needs and makes things worse. You may say talking to my mother about my care was beyond their scope. But the coach/teachers were sure willing to call my mother and beg to put me on the team. Then the following day – there I was – in football practice, hungry and bewildered. I was completely useless out there. What an opportunity for me! It was an irresponsible waste of money by immature public school teachers and administrators, and especially a drunk principal. All those math classes without textbooks and teaching were really useful, too!

    You know in 20 years football won’t even exist anymore because of the concussion issues.

    ========
    Boy Scouts and many more organizations are not promoted more because there are not enough FREE baby sitters to run more of any of those units. The parents are very willing to send their kids as long as they (the parents) don’t have to get involved. I know first hand with 39 years experience in one of those organizations.

    It is the same with the ones for the girls. Like the Brownies and the Girl Scouts. Many parents beyond paying for the uniforms really don’t get into it to help the kid(s) out.
    That is how it was even forty years ago even. I, except for a family with the troop picnic, never saw any family participation with the troops I was in.
