For Werth, they serve as reminders of goals achieved and of dreams left unfulfilled. For all of those division champion hats, he has only one that says “World Series Champions.” No National has logged more playoff games than Werth. No Nationals player has seen his season end in October disappointment more often than Werth.
What renders this single volume unique is not that it is a cornucopia of facts (which it is, abundantly and lavishly so), but that it arranges them lovingly in patterns and narratives and, thus, endows them with sense and sensibility. It is at once an erudite friend, a mischievous iconoclast, a legend to our times, the sum total of human knowledge in a rich variety of fields, and a treasure trove of trivia and miscellany. It is as compellingly readable as the best non fiction, as comprehensive as you need it to be, and as diverting as a parlor game.

Andreas Hofer, a well travelled skier and lawyer from Austria who recently visited the resort, described it as “surprising, and full of unexpected luxury.” He rated its slopes as somewhat less than stellar for the true ski enthusiast, but gave it bonus points for being among the most exotic ski locations on the planet. “Nobody from abroad will come for the skiing only,” he said.
After meeting at the White House with the president, along with other top congressional leaders from both parties, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said she told him he need not bother going to Congress to take action in Iraq. A dozen years ago, Pelosi herself voted against giving President George W. Bush permission to invade Iraq.
