Cardinals' Furcal To Have Elbow Surgery

St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Rafael Furcal will undergo reconstructive elbow surgery next week after being examined by Dr. James Andrews. A normal recovery time of six-to-eight months would likely sideline Furcal for all of the 2013 campaign. He suffered a partially torn ligament last August but opted for rest and rehab instead of surgery in the offseason. Furcal tried throwing early in spring training and was shut down this past weekend. He hit .264 with five homers and 49 RBI in 121 games last season.

From terror attacks to campus threats, jihadist wars in the name of extreme religion, protest groups shouting at each other to the vitriol of the anonymous internet--it seems our world is seething with anger. Anger begets hatred. Hatred begets evil. Evil begets fear, which begets anger, which begets more hatred, then more evil.
