I have a long memory. Think back to the 60 Minutes expose on Food Lion that showed on video the meat workers regrinding the rotten hamburger meat and putting it out for sale. Food Lion, indeed! Only a hyena would eat that!
It's a good thing nobody in the sports page comments engages in vitriolic personal attacks and stereotyping! Otherwise these comments would be/should be shut down like the news comments were.
By the way, what's a Vols Nation? I thought we were all (or mostly) just Americans. Did the University in Knoxville actually secede from the rest of us? Oh, I wish they would, and take the rest of college football with them...
No thanks, I have a life.
Football - boh.
Are we back to comments now? If so, I'd just like to say this is a very sensible and reasonable way to settle this incident. I hope both individuals, and the rest of us, can take away a lesson in personal self-control and moderation in emotional situations.
"Editorette" is kind of sexist, like suffragette. I believe the proper term nowadays is "editrix."
Where was Lady Gaga?
So two out of four of the above comments are vitriolic, ad hominem attacks. Ms. Gerber, this article is posted under "Latest News" on the left column of the website -- why doesn't it fall under the new "no comments" rule? Hmm?
What a lot of palaver about not much -- "Tiger Woods - blah blah - Jerry Sandusky - blah blah - business as usual - LeBron James - blah blah - show me da money - Bruce Pearl - blah blah."
Professional sports - bah humbug!
People of every race and gender, knowing the history of voting discrimination and how past generations fought for the right to vote, should feel insulted by the suggestion that the minor inconvenience and petty expense of acquiring legitimate identification to prove their identity would ever prevent them from expressing their rights as American voters.
I can explain in a few well-chosen words:
- Adam Sandler
- 3D reissues
- $5 popcorn
Those are three good reasons not to open your wallet for Hollywood. However, if you haven't taken a kid to see the 2D version of "Hugo," you've really missed something. Also, support the AEC film series here; some of the best movies in the world come here and are seen by 10 people in the audience. Give it a try - broaden horizons.
