About some things we don’t know spit
Every once in a while, reporters have to ask the hard questions.
Sure, it’d be nice if every story had a gift-wrapped ending and all queries were easily answered. But journalistic life doesn’t often play out quite so seamlessly.
So we ask, hoping to get a reasonable response from a believable source. (Political reporters need not bother because no one should be forced to waste so much time waiting in vain.)
Here are a few things that recently popped into my mind and had nowhere else to go except out of my ear and onto this page:

We’ve come to expect expectoration whenever we watch October baseball on TV. Thank God for the networks it’s not a sweeps month, but that doesn’t mean the rest of us wish to be treated to so many spittin’ images.
