Does Maduro really have the armed forces?

We hear that President Nicolas Maduro has the support of the armed forces.  But does he really? 
Remember the Kremlin back in 1991?  They ordered the armed forces to put down the Yeltsin movement but they didn’t.  In other words, soldiers were not willing to fight their own people to support a corrupt and unpopular regime.
I see the same thing happening down in Venezuela.
First, Maduro has not sent a task force to arrest Interim President Juan Guaido, as we see in news reports:  
More than 700 opponents of President Nicolas Maduro have been arrested during the latest push by Venezuela’s opposition to oust the socialist leader.
But there’s one anti-government activist security forces notably haven’t touched: Juan Guaido, the lawmaker who declared himself interim president in a direct challenge to Maduro’s rule.
So why not?  Why not deliver the knockout punch and put your opponent in jail?
I think that Maduro knows that such a move would provoke one of these three reactions, or all of them at once:
1) The armed forces will not arrest the man supported by the people in the streets;
2) Maduro is afraid that he will be arrested; and best of all,
3) It could bring about a military intervention or some kind of regional force made up of U.S. Marines, Brazilian troops and others.
Does Maduro really have the armed forces on his side?  He probably has the Cubans, but not much more.
Maduro needs to get out quickly —  or he will spend a long time chatting to a cellmate called Noriega in the U.S.

How did Walter Johnson lose 279 games with a 2.17 career ERA?

A day ago, I posted about the first Hall of Fame class of 1936.   It included Walter Johnson, a well deserved choice and great right-hander.

Check out these awesome statistics:  417 wins, 2.17 career ER, 3509 Ks, 531 complete games and 110 shutouts.   


He also lost 279 games!


Johnson had a .599 winning pct.   In other words, he lost 40% of his games.  


How do you lose 40% of your games with a 2.17 career ERA?   He must have had a lot of 1-0 or 2-1 complete game losses.





A new book: "Marriage and Civilization: How Monogamy Made Us Human"


Like many of you, I catch Dennis Prager's radio show whenever possible.   

Some time ago, Dennis interviewed William Tucker, the author of "Marriage and civilization".   It was a great discussion about the importance of marriage through history.

I will go out and get the book:
