Charlie Steiner wonders where his Medal of Freedom is

Charley must have thought the Obama administration had called the wrong Dodger broadcaster when he heard the Vin Scully had received the Medal of Freedom. After all,  it was Charlie who led the ESPN folks to freedom, what has Vin Scully ever done?

Based on the wiki of the Medal of Freedom and this quote from President Obama:

President Obama said, “The Presidential Medal of Freedom is not just our nation’s highest civilian honor – it’s a tribute to the idea that all of us, no matter where we come from, have the opportunity to change this country for the better.  From scientists, philanthropists, and public servants to activists, athletes, and artists, these 21 individuals have helped push America forward, inspiring millions of people around the world along the way.”

That maybe it should have been called the Medal of Inspiration but I guess that doesn’t have the ring of Medal of Freedom that President Kennedy was going for.

  3. I got the feeling on TBLA that they felt I was being nit picky. And I was. So I took it here where I can nitpick to my hearts content.
