Revisiting the Sense on Cents Halls of Fame/Shame

Posted by Larry Doyle on July 28th, 2011 7:31 AM |

For those who love baseball, summer is not only a time for taking in a ballgame (like today’s matinee at Fenway Park between our beloved 1st place Boston Red Sox and the Kansas City Royals) but also for paying a visit to the Hall of Fame.

Baseball fans of all ages love to make the pilgrimage to the hallowed hall in Cooperstown, New York.

Fans of Sense on Cents are well aware that yours truly has inducted worthy and deserving recipients into both wings of our own hall here over the course of the year. Just yesterday, I inducted Muddy Water’s Carson Block into the Sense on Cents Hall of Fame.

While I take the boys to the ballpark, I hope readers, both new and old, may like to pay a visit to the Sense on Cents Halls of Fame and Shame a/o year end 2010.

I provided the following ceremonial tribute and induction at the end of last year.

Eli Broad on Education: “The American Public Doesn’t Get It”

Posted by Larry Doyle on May 4th, 2010 2:36 PM |

I feel strongly that the very future of our country is directly tied to the quality of our secondary schools. How are we doing? Not very well. The United States has plummeted in terms of educational rankings over the last few decades.

While I have written on this topic periodically, let’s listen to a Bloomberg interview with Eli Broad on U. S. Education. Eli Broad and his wife Edythe are renowned philanthropists. The Broad Foundation does tremendous work. During this brief interview, Broad hits hard on the issues of families, educational management, and the fact that America has become “fat, dumb, happy.”

The truth may hurt, but if our nation wants to make progress we had better face the truth head on. I thank Eli Broad for speaking so bluntly on one of the most important topics impacting our future well being.  – LD
