A little perspective

Ok, this one is not directly softball-related. But there certainly is a tie when you think about the times you’ve seen others (or you yourself have) go ballistic over the umpire’s call on a bang-bang play, or scream at a kid for taking a called third strike, or just otherwise behaved as a less than exemplary resident of the planet.

Check out this link to a blog on Belicove.com. The entry is called The Pale Blue Dot. It’s a look at the Earth from space, with an essay by the late Carl Sagan. I found it both interesting and moving.
