Chamberlain in Shirt Sleeves

Jeff_2009_1.jpg“I express a commitment to carry on and protect the constitution and the
people, and transfer power to whomever is elected next September in free
and transparent elections.”
-Hosni Mubarak, 10 February 2011

“I will not seek a new term.”
-Zine El Abadine Ben Ali, 13 January 2011

“God willing, on Dec. 31, 2012, you’ll be saying goodbye to me.”
-Bud Selig, 29 November 2009

“For the present I ask you to await as
calmly as you can the events of the next few days. As
long as war has not begun, there is always hope that it
may be prevented, and you know that I am going to work
for peace to the last moment.”
-Neville Chamberlain, 27 September 1938

“We’ve put up with the shenanigans this long… another year or two won’t kill us.”
-Jeffery Lung, 18 February 2011

Am I saying that Mr. Lung is a modern day Neville Chamberlain and that his policy of appeasement towards the gruesome excesses of Commissioner Selig lead inexorably to a modern day “Blitz”?  I leave that for history to decide.  All I can do is point out that allowing Selig to hold his Opening Day without protest is tantamount to allowing Germany to annex Czechoslovakia in 1938 without a word of disagreement.  Will we wait until Selig marches into Poland before we finally stand up?

Ben Ali and Mubarak also made empty promises that they would step down as their terms ended.  However, their citizens called their bluffs and both men find themselves exiled to places where hopefully they can do no harm.  As citizens of Major League Baseball, we owe it to ourselves and each other to do no less.  The revolution begins 31 March 2011.  Selig must go!
