Who am I? I am a baseball nut. Paily fan. Iowegian farmer's daughter. Flaming liberal. Sunday school teacher. Writer. Pinterest rock star and Willy Wonka wannabe who likes girls. Yeah, that's pretty much it.
I would like to say I would be shocked or surprised by the comments. But given the fact that there’s still a significant element of bigotry and racism in our nation, I’m not surprised. …It still plagues us, obviously. And what I was surprised by was how proud these idiots were of their ignorance by printing their names next to their comments. [De La Cruz] is a class act. Way more mature than most his age. And as much as those comments by the idiots saddens you about your country, he makes you feel that the future could be very bright.
