That’s the only pitch I’ve ever seen well in my career at this ballpark, … He’s got really good stuff, but we were able to take advantage of maybe some mistakes by him, and that’s what you have to do against a pitcher like Brad Penny.
That's the toughest loss I've ever had. I'm kind of dumbfounded considering they're the team that played last night. You get a goal a minute into the third and '¦ they're doing it their way and they're losing. It's not everybody, but when we play our game plan, we're successful. We're making mistakes on little things that are turning around for goals for them.
I’ve seen a lot of stuff… maybe I’ve seen too much. I see most humans in a bad light because I’ve seen what they can do, how evil they can be… I’ve seen the Holocaust and I’ve seen Jonestown, I’ve seen the Vietnam War and I’ve seen Hiroshima… I’ve seen the Chernobyl disaster… I’ve seen the World Trade Center attack… I’ve been alive too long, over a hundred years is a long time to be alive,” Alecto sighed, staring at the cigarette he was holding.
The most horrific scenes I've ever seen. I couldn't imagine that we would have seen it exactly as we did. It looked as if a bomb had exploded along the coast of Mississippi. And then when we got to my home state of Louisiana and my home district, covered with water, just 80 percent of the city, just a massive devastation. ... I think [George W. Bush] had to agree with us that it was a totally unacceptable response. I know it was an overwhelming storm, but that, of course, meant that the tragedy was enormous and the need to respond was greater than ever before. Yet we waited days to get a response. It was very unorganized, and people suffered as a consequence of it. ... FEMA couldn't decide how to coordinate with the states and couldn't decide how to accept help. And it was just a massive set of inefficiencies.
I believe in evil, but all my life I've gone back and forth about whether or not there's an outside evil, whether or not there's a force in the world that really wants to destroy us, from the inside out, individually and collectively. Or whether it all comes from inside and that it's all part of genetics and environment. When you find somebody like, let's say, Ted Bundy, who tortured and killed all those women and sometimes went back and had sex with the dead bodies, I don't think when you look at his upbringing you can say, "Oh, that's because Mommy put a clothespin on his dick when he was four." That behavior was hard-wired. Evil is inside us. The older I get, the less I think there's some sort of outside devilish influence; it comes from people. And unless we're able to address that issue, sooner or later, we'll fucking kill ourselves.
