Introducing a nicer Baker

 Well, that was quick.  At the age of 6, my grandson, Asa Baker-Rouse, has already accumulated more Internet clout than I’ve been able to assemble in a career.  What’s more he did it with pure sweetness. (Perhaps that’s where I went wrong.)  A Middlebury student named Bianca Giaever turned one of Asa’s stories into a 7-minute film that has now received hundreds of thousands of hits.  


 It has no political content whatsoever, but it does have a lesson of sorts.  And for those of you who always want the backstory, Asa’s younger brother is named Toby.
