OTP 24 April 2017: Talking politics (and baseball) with the mayor

Indianapolis mayor Joe Hogsett on politics:

“Who thinks it is acceptable for a kid to come Downtown with a handgun in his pocket?” he asked. “Who thinks it is OK for kids who aren’t even 18 to be walking around with guns? I don’t think you can find anyone who thinks that is acceptable.”

Indianapolis mayor Joe Hogsett on baseball:

“Some call it slow, or even boring. But it’s deliberate for a reason. It’s a situational game. Every batter, every pitch, presents a different situation and a different challenge. What I love about baseball is that I’m 60 years old and I’ve been watching baseball for as long as I can remember, but I’m still learning.”

I’m with him on gun control and agin’ him on pace of play.  What say others?
