1966: Ted Williams elected to The Hall of Fame

The great Ted Williams was selected to the Hall of Fame on this day in 1966.   

He was probably the greatest hitter in history.  His numbers must take into consideration military service in World War II and Korea:  .344 career batting average, a .482 On Base Average, 2,654 hits, 2,021 walks, 521 HR and 1,839 RBI.   

Williams hit .406 in 1941, the last hitter to do so, and flirted again in 1957 with .388!

Williams was a bit temperamental with fans and the media.   However, there was not a better hitter once the game started.

2009: A little thanks to Pres. Bush!

Jules Crittenden was the Boston Herald city editor and columnist. He has reported on politics, crime, science, maritime matters, foreign affairs and conflict in the United States, Asia, the Balkans and the Middle East.

After Obama defeated McCain, Crittenden looked at the world in 2008 and compared it with 2001.    

Without doubt, Crittenden was right that President Bush left us in a better position around the world than we were in when he came into office
"As the transition progresses and Barack Obama's inauguration draws closer, it's a good moment to mull the gifts George W. Bush has left for the incoming president.

Bush has made the world a better place, and if Obama wants to do the same, he will take the good things Bush has done and move forward with them."
We say thank you to President Bush for making all of those tough calls.
