Wanting for needing

Ramirez spent a lot of time repenting for past Sox sins, but he was most contrite about the incident with [Jack] McCormick, [Red Sox team traveling secretary].

“Yes, yes, yes, I went and spoke to Jack,” he said. “I apologized to Jack. I said, ‘Jack, I want you to forgive me because it was my fault. I behaved bad here with everybody. I want you to forgive me.’ He said, ‘Manny, thank you. I was waiting for that.’ ”

McCormick confirmed to the Globe’s Nick Cafardo that he accepted Manny’s apology.

He was one of many at Fenway on this chilly night that were offering Ramirez absolution.

We humans are a needy crowd. We need so much and so many, and our needs are far-ranging. We get what we need only to need what we want.

We need what we really want, but do we want what we really need?

Do we want forgiveness? Do we need it?

About elmoshangnaster

The name's a dodge simply because 1) on the internet I can be whomever I choose, and 2) I'm just paranoid enough to keep scoundrels and government out of my business and don't care to sort 'em out from the decent folk. My blog, my opinions. Don't like 'em? Sure, kindly tell me about your far-fetched, idiotic beliefs...kindly. In the end we'll neither of us change the others mind, but I will take the time to read your arguments if they're thought out in a rational fashion and not full of hyperbole. I'm a Christian human being. It's not a flavor or color preference, it's who and what I am. Don't like it? The above considerations apply. I'm not about to waste anyone's time or mine shoving Christianity down their gullet if they demonstrate even the least resistance. When someone's ready to hear I'm only too glad to share. The Gravatar? It's Jenny Lake in the Tetons near Jackson, WY. If God had a house that's where it would be.
