But I have also mentioned before, even right here on these pages, that certain things ARE much more important than baseball.
Even if Jon Lester throws a perfect game.
I don't want to make any commentary on political issues on this site, but somehow I think it's wrong to be shifting reader's attention to baseball on this day when there are graver issues to be thinking about. So I am joining several other members of the Baseball Blogger's Alliance in a day long "moment of silence".
For more details on what we are doing and why, and a full list of participating sites, please read the original post on the I-70 Baseball website.
