BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-09-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Of course, Bill James has a more subtle take on Speaker and the Klan... Seemed to put whatever it is aside for Larry Doby, too.
(Matt from Mt. Albert, ON)
Yeah, he did, but so what? I mean, if he evolved, fine. That adds a shade of gray to that part of the portrait. It doesn't erase the earlier stuff, it just deepens the man. As you can tell from this chat, I'm not big on passing judgment on others, but there are also some things that are so heinous you don't get a pass for doing them, no matter what else comes later.
