    Tuesday Talkback

    Those silly moaners.
     
    "If China and India are so desperate to buy our gasoline, why don't we charge them the high prices and lower the price for the American public? Isn't that what the Middle East does to us with their oil?" — Elyria
     
    Our gasoline?
    Our gasoline?
     
    "Sports figures are in trouble for using drugs to enhance their playing abilities. Musicians/rock stars/movie stars use drugs probably 100 times as much and the drugs do not enhance their abilities at all and they get paid big bucks, get awards and are left alone." — Brunswick
     
    Isn't it funny how music is not like sports in this respect?  I disagree that drugs have not "enhanced" the [creative] abilities of musicians, even though you don't hear about anyone getting stripped of a Grammy for the use of performance enhancing drugs.  Sorry, Pink Floyd and The Beatles -- none of those album sales count, and now the Rock Hall is going to kick you out.  Goo goo ga joob, you crazy diamond!

    I think the difference is that in pro sports there is or was a sense of public trust. Since the teams are refered to as the city of state name and that in many cases the fields they played on were owned of built by the public, then the players owe something to them.
    "Artists" owe nothing to the public.
    Additionally, I think there must be something in sports similar to the "Quizshow" cheating scandals.
    However, I can't see how this is more important than the 4000 young men and women who have died in the casue of the fabricated war in Iraq.

    When the Elyria city council banned the word "fungible" - because it lead to moral turpitude, apparently - I knew there'd be trouble.
