Celebrity Interview: Ozzie Smith, Hall of Fame Shortstop, Fights Corporate Power

America is no longer a Democracy. It has become a Corporatocracy ruled by Multinational Corporations. 29 years ago, before the multinational corporations ascended into world rule, life was simpler. We only had to fight against local corporate greed. Our strongest weapon were unions who had the power to strike, to affect the corporate control, to force changes.

29 years ago, the Professional Baseball Players Union called for such a strike and one of the its most outspoken leaders was a young shortstop named Ozzie Smith. I had the honor of interviewing him in July, 1981. The following interview, reprinted from the Winners Hall of Fame, are the thoughts he shared with me ….

Readers’ Choice: Lynn Lynum, Survivor in Need — Success!

The story of my friend, Lynn Lynum, begins in High School when he was shot twice in the back in a drive-by shooting and was given three days to live. As he lay there dying, Lynn prayed that God would heal him. Shortly thereafter, he was released from the hospital.
The day Lynn graduated from High School his parents packed his bags and told him that he was a man now and had to provide for himself and that he had to find a job and his own place to live. “I did not like that they did this to me, but what could I do?” said Lynn. So at 18 with no place to live and no source of income or food, Lynn went to live with an Aunt for about a month until he could get into campus housing at Cal Poly Pomona, CA. Lynn was his Aunt’s favorite nephew and he credits the incident as a character building experience. “It made me what I am today, a man that can stand on his own.”
