BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, JANUARY 14, 2011 Page 15 Arizona (Continued from Page 2) inclusive of conservative views, it's entirely possible that those entities would never have been created and grown to what they now are. Instead, we have a "media" that mostly spews Demo- cratic Party talking points in service of their agenda. Last night, as I surfed around the cable news chan- nels, I heard Keith Olber- mann on MSNBC, Wolf Blitzer on CNN, and Geraldo Rivera on FNC all try to blame Palin and the Tea Party for the Giffords shooting. If this sort of propagandist thuggery over the airwaves is what passes for "news," it's no wonder that polarization and partisanship are on the increase. And that other outlets like FOX News and talk radio would sprout up in response to it and become popular. Democrats rammed Obamacare and other far- left government takeovers through in the face of public opposition, in the finest Chi- cago street-punk machine style from whence President Obama came, complete with bribes for votes in favor and intimidation for votes against. For it, they lost the House and 5 Senate seats in the biggest mid-term loss in modern American political history. And rather than be chastened by it, they despi- cably rammed more legisla- tions through in a lame-duck session that should never have been held. And Obama seems determined to force upon us via executive branch regulation everything he'll now be unable to get through the new GOP House. (In particular, environmental diktats that will leave no area of our personal lives to our own choice and control.) They can't really be sur- prised by any ensuing back- lash to this deliberate and relentless crushing of liberty and freedom, can they? Ever since the Republi- cans took the House back in 1994, when Democrats who had been in power for so long that they had come to view it as a birthright reacted like petulant spoiled brats over having lost it, the left has been throwing verbal grenades. From Clinton's reprehensible exploitation of the Oklahoma City bombing, to the left's reaction to his impeachment, then to the 2000 Bush/Gore recount in Florida, then to President Bush and the war in Iraq, and finally to Sarah Palin, they have come increas- ingly unhinged. Moreover, every time any cut - or even any reduction in growth -- is proposed to any government program, the left responds by calling a litany of names. In 1995, when the GOP proposed to increase funding for the federal school lunch pro- gram by 3.1% instead of the 4.5% the Democrats wanted - -- because, as we all know, it's the federal govern- ment's role to feed kids, not their morn and dad -- they responded by accusing the GOP of starving children. Bear in mind, this was for an increaser This sort of absurd dema- gogy from the left has only continued, increased, and intensified in the years since. I would argue that if the left really wants to dial things back, they would do well to start with their own words and actions. Then the politi- cal version of Newton's Third Law might just work in a constructive way and not destructive. Of course, I doubt they see it that way. They're so convinced of the correct- ness of their positions, and that those ends justify any means needed to implement them ("right makes might"), that we who disagree and object need to just shut up and accept their rule and then all will be well. If they in fact have such an arrogant attitude -- and I believe many on the left do -- then I'm sad to say that things will probably get worse before they get better.

DeCristofaro, Register of Probate i Rundate: 1/14/11 I by Sal Giarratani Killerbrew Pighting Cancer The Minnesota Twins greatest slugger and Hall of Famer Harmon Killerbrew has been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Killer- brew, 74, released a state- ment thrown the Twins organization saying he expects to make a full re- covery from this "very seri- ous" condition. Said Killer- brew, "With my wife, Nita, by my side, I have begun pre- paring for what is perhaps the most difficult battle of my life." Killerbrew played 22 sea- sons and hit 573 home runs. He started off as a Washing- ton Senators player and con- tinued on with the team when the franchise moved to Minnesota and became the Twins. His final season in 1975 was with the KC Roy- als. He was inducted into Cooperstown in 1984 and is fifth on the all-time home run list. Palmeiro Says He Never Did Steroids Rafael Palmeiro still says he never took steroids and is holding to his story a tainted vitamin short caused his failed drug test five years ago. He's hoping Hall of Fame voters will over- look the mistake and honor his 20 year career in which he managed to get 3;020 hits and 569 home runs. As Baseball Writers Association of America members get ready to vote for inductees into Cooperstown. He re- cently told Sl.com he never used performance enhanc- ing drugs. He is, by the way, only one of four ballplayers in baseball history with 500 homers and 3,000 hits. Once certain for Coopers- town, he may never ever get in thanks to that failed drug test and his alleged lying about it. Mark McGwire with 583 homers has now been denied Hall of Fame election four times along with Palmeiro. Hey Boo-boo How Ya Doin? Thank goodness I have my Extra Innings fans out there fact-checking for me. I'm not always perfecto. I make boos-boos. Not that often but boo-boos never- theless. Recently, I wrote something about a Chicago Cubs super star from yester- year named Ron Santo. I called him a great second baseman when he was in fact a great third baseman. I had him playing great de- fensive ball as an infielder but put him at the wrong base. SORRY. Who's perfect, huh?

In 2006, under Rogers' di- rection, the MFA ]Secame the first museum to trans- fer 13 antiquities to Italy, signing an agreement with the Italian Ministry that provided for the creation of a relationship in which the Italian government would loan significant works from Italy to the Museum's dis- plays and special exhibi- tions. The agreement also established a process by back to the first half of the first century AD. The MFA has a history of lending masterpieces to Italy. During the past few years alone, works have traveled to Florence, Naples, Fabriano, Brescia, Modena, Salerno, Mantua, and Rome. Paul C6zanne's painting Madame C~zanne in a Red Armchair (about 1877) hung in the Palazzo Strozzi in Flo- rence, Vincent van Gogh's painting Lullaby: Madame Augustine Roulin Rocking a Cradle (1889) was sent to the Museo di Capodimonte in Naples, and Pellegrino DiGiovanni's 14th century tempera Saint Michael (about 1428-1437) went to the Spedale di Santa Marie del Buon Gesfl in Fabriano. Loans made to Italy further the MFA's mission -- to play a strong international role by sharing the treasures of its collection with visitors around the world. In addi- Rembrandt, Gauguin, and Picasso were on view in the exhibition Da Rembrandt, A Gaugu/n a P/cass0; and to the Villa Manin in Friuli, where works by Courbet, Monet, and Renoir were displayed in L'Eta di Courbet e Manet. Cur- rently, the MFA is lending works to exhibitions at the Palazzo Ducale in Genova, the Palazzo Sums in San Marino, as well as the Villa Manin and the Rocca Malatestiana. Rogers assumed the role of Ann and Graham Gund Di- rector of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), in Sep- tember 1994. Throughout his tenure, he has expanded the Museum's encyclopedic collection, presented a vari- ety of innovative exhibi- tions, enhanced arts educa- tion programs, enlarged the MFA's campus, and wel- comed many new audi- ences.
