I'm writing this on the main street of Tombstone, Arizona. It's part of the game. A little later, I met Russell, a Democrat. He's all taut legs and arms, and hands that vouch for his 18 years in the business. These are timeless political debates given a striking and fascinating immediacy by Americans. He will be bringing his highlights from the cities along the route - including Las Vegas, Phoenix and Albuquerque - in a diary on the Talking America site. Mets' deGrom won't negotiate after opener New York Mets.
Either way, a TV show about a town named after a radio show has a certain logic to it.
Ros Atkins' journey
I'm writing this on the main street of Tombstone, Arizona. It was a surreal scene. It's something that just came out. I'm completely and utterly embarrassed and feel horrible to have put the fans, my teammates and the Blue Jays organization in this position. With his team trailingPillar struck out swinging to end a seventh.
Twenty of so people joined us for our broadcast - sitting on fold-out chairs on a little shadeless patch of concrete by a bandstand. The OK Corral stages re-enactments of the famous gunfight. In fact so did everyone. Pillar was much more contrite Thursday. A study has shown his guys ran more critical ads than McCain's in the last week. One risked his savings.
