  • Dorothys Return Home
    1,306 words
    The Development of Dorothy The movie The Wizard of Oz opens on a farm in Kansas. The lead character is a twelve-year-old girl named Dorothy. Dorothy exists in a world limited by aged beliefs and fears, which make up a great part of her reality. In Kansas, Dorothy is a twelve-year-old girl, with twelve-year-old needs and emotions. I feel that the movie is a device by which we can analyze Dorothy in all states of mind, her conscious, pre-conscious, and unconscious. I believe that Sigmund Freud pri...
  • Point To My Stolen Base Totals
    381 words
    In your 5 x 5 strategy column, you say, 'a stolen base is worth more than a home run. ' Stolen bases might be more rare, but their importance is not higher. Were Joe Player to steal a base, he would be adding one point to my stolen base totals. If he hit a homer, he would improve his average, get at least one RBI, score a run, and add a point to my home run total. Obviously, an act that helps four categories is better than something that helps only one. Peter: You raise a good point. I didn't me...
  • Sosa's Final Home Run
    4,482 words
    After the 1994 strike, Major League Baseball has had problems getting fans interested in the game and into the ballparks. All that changed in 1998 when baseball enjoyed its greatest season ever. From the home run chase, the great pitching, and the unstoppable Yankees, there is no doubt about it. Even the 41 season, with Joe Dimaggio's 56 game hitting streak and Ted Williams run at a. 400 batting average pales in comparison to the exploits of Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa in 98. Because of all that...
  • Rabbit's Life Wit Janice
    1,691 words
    The world of John Updike's Rabbit, Run is a collection of polarities that dramatizes the in-be tweeness and the constant state of tension that characterizes humanity. A cursory perusal of John Updike's Rabbit, Run reveals a world of hopeless futility in which Harry Angstrom runs in ever-tightening circles. Rabbit is always running, from one woman to another, between Brewer and Mt. Judge, between solitude and society. Rabbit is torn because he has faith in something meaningful in the world, somew...
  • Henry Aaron
    826 words
    Everybody knows that Henry Aaron holds the record for the most career home runs. But most of them probably do not know that he also holds the record for the most career Runs Batted In (RBIs) with 2297. The reason is that this record is not as glamorous. Well, not everything about Hank Aaron was glamorous. He had to overcome great odds and work very hard to get where he is today. Henry Louis Aaron was born on February 5, 1934. Ironically, Aaron was born one day before Babe Ruth's birthday. This w...

  • Little Patas Monkey
    649 words
    Patas and Company A hip, hop, -hop, another quick jump, and the small yet very scared (La Roe 84) monkey had gone from one tree to the next. With a fuzzy white stomach, small, pointy ears, and a "red hat" on top of his head, this was a renowned Patas monkey that lived in Kenya's wild grasslands. The small monkey, with his big eyes wide open, searched around the neighboring trees for some nuts. He stretched his neck out as much as he could to look at every nook and cranny of the trees nearby, unt...

  • Roger Maris
    380 words
    When some people think of prejudice or error in judgment, they think of Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, or maybe even Rodney King. When I think of prejudice, the only name that comes to my mind is Roger Maris. The way Maris was treated in New York was ridiculous. He was treated badly because he was not a big city guy. Maris was born in Minnesota in 1934, but raised in North Dakota. Needless to say, he was not the type of guy Yankee fans were used to. Yankee fans were always very hateful to Ma...

  • Darryl Hit Some Of The Longest Home
    2,060 words
    Tragic Hero The tragic hero's nature is exceptional, and generally raises him in some respect much above the average level of humanity. The tragic hero also has a fatal gift that carries with it a touch of greatness. Admiration, terror, awe, pity, and sympathy are all felt as we watch a tragic hero's life unfold. Aristotle stated that a tragic hero must be of certain qualities: a man of noble stature, good, though not perfect, have a fall that results from committing an act of injustice, which i...
