It turns out that if you search ("google") for "Casey at the Bat," you come with a long list of websites containing all manner of things related to the poem including the Youtube video of another reading, this one James Earl Jone's dramatic reading of the poem, below. The point for today is only that Internet is an amazing tool. Like any other it has its downside and changes the way we live in ways that are not so good as well as very good. Some years ago, a friend remarked, "I don't use Internet. It has all of that smut and pornography." I wanted to ask her if she, then, also didn't read books and magazines—but didn't.
In any event, suppose you are a fifth grader who wants to do a report on "Casey at the Bat." It could be a great report, limited only by one's skill at finding, filtering, combining, and learning from what is on the Web. And that fifth grader can do all of this at home. Amazing—at least to one who was born in a very different era.
