OK, it's time for the Sacco family to take young Joshua home and let things get back to normal again. It was very cute on YouTube. It even might have been cute at Fenway on Monday night. (And I hate to break it to folks but Kurt Russell's doing Herb Brooks's speech from Miracle isn't exactly Harry Plantagenet getting the folks going before Agincourt,OK? It's neither timeless nor deathless, nor as good as Belushi's inspirational homily at the end of Animal House.) But, now, Joshua and his little kid trick is starting arguments among serious people who should have better things to do. Did someone actually get the public vapors because Joshua said, "Screw 'em" as part of his declamation project? Yes, in fact, someone did. Did we then have an earnest chat on the publicly owned airwaves about the appropriateness of it all? You bet we did. Are we becoming a nation capable of arguing both sides of every question no matter how fundamentally idiotic the question itself is?


Well, yes.
Joshua has not been good for us here, but I wish him well in kindergarten.
