Once again our nation shows itself to be raising a bunch of ninnies with this story of a nine-year-old kid who has broken the cardinal rule of modern American life: being better at something than the other kids. He is a great pitcher for his age, and his reward is being banned from the league. I thought his mother summed it up best:
"I think it’s discouraging when you’re telling a 9-year-old you’re too good at something," said his mother, Nicole Scott. "The whole objective in life is to find something you’re good at and stick with it. I’d rather he spend all his time on the baseball field than idolizing someone standing on the street corner."
Sorry lady, this is America, where you aren't allowed to be good at something. Everyone is good, and everyone should get a trophy, and your child is robbing those other children of all their good feelings they are supposed to get from hitting the ball.
And we wonder why our politicians act like children who see nothing but what they want. It starts from the ground up.
