you also apparently suck at math
janitorial work, day labor, fast food
Everyone seemed to love Bobby Cox for the last 10 years.
It was May 7, 1995. [Cox] had been drinking, and he spilled a drink on the carpet. [Pam] made a comment he didn't appreciate. The police report said she told an officer that her husband grabbed her by the hair and hit her in the face.
"I asked Pamela Cox if this kind of incident had ever occurred before," officer Sonya Lee wrote. "Pamela Cox told me that this was the first time police had been called but that there had been 5--6 previous incidents involving physical abuse in their 18-year marriage. When asked, Pamela Cox stated that she has sustained blackened eyes and a broken hand, injuries inflicted by her husband." -Thomas Lake, Sports Illustrated
Bobby Cox is an #######.
Just because there are an infinite amount of numbers between 1 and 2 does not make 2 infinitely bigger than 1.
I think it's offensive to janitors, day laborers and food service employees that you think their job somehow makes them lesser than someone who plays baseball for a living.
But no one treated him that way for the last decade of his tenure.
Where did I say that drunk driving was 2 and wife-beating was 1?
Again, it's not my fault that you suck at math.
...says the guy who says that any difference is infinite difference
Fine. Replace it with: ...says the guy who says a punch to the stomach is "infinitely better" than a kick to the groin.
Sure, OK. I said that, and I stand by it.
I think they should be able to work - just not collect lucrative paychecks in prestigious, high-profile occupations. If someone wants to pay him to do the sort of jobs that violent ex-cons get (janitorial work, day labor, fast food, etc.) that'd be fine, I guess. But earning a living in MLB is a privilege, not a right.
I'd say playing for the Indians doesn't really qualify as a high prestige job...
What if old man Bobby Cox kicked Brett Myers in the groin in the backseat of an Infiniti?
"Beat his wife" typically characterizes a pattern of abuse. What we seem to have here is a single incident (that we know of).
She was yelling, 'I'm not going to let you do this to me anymore.'
I'd say playing for the Indians doesn't really qualify as a high prestige job
No, I think that's repulsive. Just less so than deliberately beating a defenseless woman.
