Like the Globe:

Yesterday was not about politics and government until Thomas made it about politics and government. The day, long set on the calendar, was a day when the Boston Bruins were asked to visit Pennsylvania Avenue to celebrate what they did as a team last season. It was their day in the national spotlight, until Thomas didnít show, and then the focal point became, much the way it would be in a hockey game, on the guy who was no longer standing in goal. Shabby. Immature. Unprofessional. Self-centered. Bush league. Need I go on?...Thomas needed to be there in solidarity, and celebration, with his team. It was the same government yesterday, and will be today, that protected his country, his security, his family, and his right to make $5 million a year, all last season.
