13 Boneheaded Moments in North American History

1. The moment that Canada recognized French as a "legal" language
2. Dred Scott Decision

3. "Vinny the Chin" popping Frank Costello mere moments after the latter testified that there was no such thing as La Cosa Nostra





Costello was the "public face" of Lucky Luciano's "Commission," and as such, he looked more like a captain of industry than a gangster. One of his underlings, however, wanted a bigger slice of the pie, so capo Vincenzo Gigante shot him, blurting out, "this is for you, Frank." Costello survived, however, and wisely retired from that thing of theirs that never existed. Vinny the Chin went on to be Boss in his own right. In his later years, he took to wearing a bathrobe and pajamas in public, and feigning senility, in an effort to evade prosecution. It didn't work: he died in Federal prison five years ago.

It's on the list, so I might as well plant it here.

9. Operation Iraqi Freedom - March 2003





Anyone with eyes could -- and did -- predict the following:

1) Saddam Hussein's precipitous removal from power resulted in a power vacuum, and freed up Iraq's various factions to settle old scores, to the degree that they still can't cobble together an effective national government;
2) the US' system of alliances has been severely stressed without any resulting profit, ie we put Turkey in a ridiculous position, and we've gained nothing by it;
3) the US has expended significant ammounts of blood and vast amounts of treasure for no appreciable gain;
4) the election of war by fmr Pres Geo W Bush and his administration has essentially has served to remove military options from other hotspots where military options might be far more applicable, and our enemies know it;
5) Saddam Hussein's precipitous removal from power resulted in a power vacuum, and Iran has moved deliberately to fill that vacuum, and not just in Iraq, but also in Lebanon, and throughout the rest of the Middle East, as well. Indeed, I'd go so far as to say that the only beneficiaries of OIF are living in Tehran.

Kids will be reading about OIF a century from now and learning how NOT to conduct a foreign policy.

Baker's Dozen of North American Sports Dynasties

This is too easy.

1. Miami Hurricanes (1983-1991)

2. New York Yankees 1936-1939
World Champions 1936, 1937, 1938, 1939


Managed by Joe McCarthy, led by Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, Bill Dickey, Bill Terry, Tony Lazzerri, Red Ruffing, Lefty Gomez, the mighty Yankees of the late '30's were more than a match for all comers. Indeed, many commentators hold that they may have been the greatest team of all time.







Yeah: the greatest dynasty ever is the NY Yankees 1936-1939.
