Can You Get To That?

I had an interesting e-conversation over in the comments at Booker regarding the potential ban on sagging pants in Atlanta. Now as many of y’all know, I used to sag my pants. Hawrd. Relentlessly. Ridiculously. I did it for at least 10 years, maybe closer to 12 or 13, so I know what I’m talmbout [...]

You know what? I think we got sidetracked. THe fight was supposed to be about the right to integrate, not necessarily the act of integrating. Well actually, the fight WAS about the right, and in order to affirm the validity of the legal right, it was necessary to physically integrate. However, somewhere along the line, [...]

Tough Tonies

So now the NAACP is weighing in on the Mike Vick situation. ATLANTA — An NAACP leader said Michael Vick should be allowed to return to the NFL, preferably the Atlanta Falcons, after serving his sentence for his role in a dogfighting operation. “As a society, we should aid in his rehabilitation and welcome a [...]

Tyson Quote

Filed in Everwhatever

The one thing I know, everyone respects the true person and everyone’s not true with themselves. All of these people who are heroes, these guys who have been lily white and clean all their lives, if they went through what I went through, they would commit suicide. They don’t have the heart that I have. [...]

Camille Paglia Quote

Leftism should be about the people. That’s how it began. Instead, what it has become in the last 20 years is a white upper-middle-class elitism which preaches to the people and says, “Oh, you don’t agree with us? You’re homophobic, you’re so uneducated. You’re in the darkness. You need us to bring light and truth [...]

I guess “stop snitchin’” is an East Coast thing, because apparently Mike Vick’s boys have never heard of it. Thing is, and I obviously don’t know a thing, my gut instinct tells me that while they’re all copping pleas, they’re doing a lot more pleading than copping. All of a sudden, Vick’s now the hands-on [...]

I Like Mike

Filed in Everwhatever

Thinking about the whole quote-unquote issue from the other day, I’m brought back to what I think is the most crystalline example of the sportswriter-and-by-extension-general-public thinking he’s smarter than the athlete, Mike Tyson. Make no mistake about it, Mike was destructive, both to himself and to those around him. Certainly, I don’t think there can [...]
