All Star Game For Rent

Major League Baseball disinvited their all-stars to Atlanta in July as the league retracted the city from hosting the event over changes in Georgia’s voting laws.

I’m of the opinion that this sets a terrible precedent. Keep within the reigns of political correctness, or we’ll punish everyone in your metropolitan area to bring you to heel.

Personally, I think it would have been more courageous to continue the notion of holding the game there. Bring consciousness to the political issues at hand. But alas, we live in a world where the great political conversations of our day never get held, because they think there’s more to be gained that way.

Sooner or later, those discussions are going to occur. Burying heads in the sand just leaves you with sand in your hair.
