Going to the dogs . . .
It seems to me that we are really pushing our denial button these days with the current uproar over Micheal Vick and the dog fighting situation. Is it just me, or is this the height of hypocrisy. The man plays professional football, a sport that has turned America's need for gladiatorship and vicarious violence into a billion dollar business. How is it any different than what Vick and his pals are accused of doing? Is not the retired player's association engaged in a major law suit to force the league and it's owners to somehow redress them for the incredible damage done to them in the name of sport? What's the deal, we get upset if it's dogs but oh well if it's humans?
