A side wants thousands of baseball results from the 1940s, and on and on altered:
A run here, a run there, and box scores and radio scores would contain:
A fan’s elevation ….
And that is a side, and there is another:
The one that wants:
The Spanish Civil War to end differently;
The Spanish conquest of Mexico to fail;
The African independence wars to have just lands, leaders;
The Mexican Revolution to have worked ….
All revolutions to have worked ….
Oh, those books, read and reread,
Same results, always ….
Same scores, same victories, same losses ….
Eugene “Gene” Novogrodsky, late June 2012
