File this in the "too bad" category, but former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling has decided not to seek the senate seat held by the late Sen. Edward Kennedy.
One thing about Mr. Schilling that would have made for an interesting race is that he would be unpredictable. And right now, the United States needs a little shaking up.
And, one should read this manifesto of sorts on Mr. Schilling's own 38 Pitches blog. It is not a perfect one, but it is a real one. And more than anything, we need some authenticity in those that we elect to office.
I hope that it is possible to change Mr. Schilling's mind. The United States needs straight-shooters like Mr. Schilling in office.
