Bizarre: area man concerned that children's sports not authoritarian enough

Gosh, someone with a little power used it wisely instead of becoming a petty tyrant and turning everything into competition over artificial scarcity and winners/losers ... Letting kids wear whatever number they wanted, even if they shared the same number as another teammate. 

Instead of applause, Horrors!  "How are we going to defeat the commies if we don't start kids on the path to nameless peons identified by number only early?  We must start imposing meaningless and unnecessary restrictions arbitrarily NOW, because we plan on doing it more later too. If we don't, kids might grow up thinking that the people in charge should act sensibly."

Allowing kids to wear the same jersey number? What message does that send? (Letters to the Editor) |
