What are Casey Stengel and the Mets doing in a blog about politics and such other serious subjects?  Well, Bernie Madoff and his bankster friends got the beloved Mets into a sea of fiscal troubles, and Stan Isaccs, legendary sports columnist of Long Island’s Newsday, suggests the solution is to issue an “IPO of the Heart,” a chance for all New Yorkers to buy stock in the franchise.  They do it in Green Bay!  There were more than a few of us rooting for the Packers in the recent Super Bowl because of their public ownership.  And it worked!  So LET’S BUY METS!
