Begrudgingly Truncated Tweet: Derek Jeter’s Situation

And yet, as James Earl Jones once definitely wrote, “There comes a time when all the cosmic tumblers have clicked into place and the universe opens itself up a few seconds to show you what’s possible.” In this case, of course, “what’s possible” is a joke about Derek Jeter‘s gentleman’s ass — nor is the present author inclined to contradict the universe on this matter.
