Hello, kind visitor. This is just a quick note about categories. This main section of is called “At First Glance”, and there is all kinds of stuff here. Over yonder to the right (or on the button above) is access to sports-related writing, and today I want to point out that the piece “On Boston.”, like many of the things in “It’s All About Sports!“, is not really about box scores, winners and losers. Today it’s about tragedy marring aspiration, disfiguring some of the best in life.

Also, today’s quote in the “He Said/She Said” collection is by a brave and pioneering young woman, Katherine Switzer, whose love of running yielded the painful-but-still-true comment that I can’t get out of my mind. Thanks for visiting.
