Letter: A time to consider our priorities

Gloucester Daily Times

---- — To the editor,

Once, you had to achieve something: For example — Ted Williams enters Baseball’s Hall of Fame.

Now there are halls of fame for anything and anybody.

For example — soon there will be a Bat Boy Hall of Fame. How about a Hall of Fame for custodians?

What is behind this impulse to commemorate blindly?

It may be better not to ask.

But one does ask — and one may know. There is little really important in our society.
