Ex-MLB Players Killed

This story made me glad to be living where things are not this bad, yet. I hope to be gone before they ever do. In my pessimistic moments, I am almost certain that they will.

[Note: This has nothing to do with the immigration debate currently raging in the U.S. It is an old man's disappointment with realizing that, contrary to what he thought throughout most of his life, the human condition is getting worse, not better.]

Things have gotten worse. And this is the tip of the iceberg.

I feel so sorry for the innocent in Venezuela. Every day they go out, there are numerous packs of wolves looking for prey. The conditions there are horrible to dwell upon.

I have a co-worker who recently came from there and talking to her got me to check out some videos on youtube about the current situation in Venezuela. I was shocked. They went from maybe the richest country in South America to the poorest in such a short time. Their situation has been compared to that of Germany's hyper-inflation of the Weimar Republic after World War I where people are selling everything they have and they're still starving. There's a mass exodus of its people and cities that were once thriving are like ghost towns with only a smattering of homeless wandering the streets.

I wasn't surprised in the least to hear the news that the accident was caused by bandits.

I was in Venezuela in the mid 80's. There was poverty to be sure, but there was also peace in even the remote regions. I visited an oil town called El Tigre and enjoyed it despite not being able to speak the language. I was very comfortable in Caracas. It is sad to see what has happened to the country today. I think top players will now have to consider whether to continue to support their country by playing winter ball there.
