No New Members Elected To Baseball Hall Of Fame

There are no new members heading to the National Baseball Hall of Fame this year. None of the eligible candidates received the required 75-percent of votes from the Baseball Writers' Association of America for election. Longtime Houston Astros infielder Craig Biggio was the closest with 68.2-percent of the vote. Former pitcher Jack Morris received 67.7 percent. First-time eligibles Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa fell well short after careers clouded by steroid accusations. Clemens got 37.6-percent, Bonds 36.2-percent and Sosa just 12.5-percent. It's just the eighth time since voting began in 1936 that no new members were elected to the Hall.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

I am a woman. I would be more than happy to have more money in my paycheck. Too bad the Paycheck Fairness Act won't do that for me. Who wants "equality" if it comes because everyone makes less money?

Nonetheless, the Paycheck Fairness Act is the latest weapon in the War On Women, part II--2014 election style.
