They make $200,000 for seven months work.  In return they are required to make snap judgments that often reap abuse and ridicule. They do get absolutely terrific views of baseball games but sometimes get foul balls directly in the face. Umpires are always at the...

Our grandson loves to turn on the seat heaters when he rides in the back seat of our car.  Since we don't ride in the back we are not aware that they are on--usually on high. This weekend we took some friends for a ride...
