Does the ending of this Michael Vick saga seem anti-climatic to you? It does me. I wanted to see this scumbag stand before a jury that had been subjected to all of his obscene acts. I wanted the jury to hear how this NFL quarterback killed dogs with his own hands. I wanted the full story to be told and for Vick to spend the next two decades in a federal prison. Alas, I'll have to accept the fact that most likely in under 2 years Vick will be out of prison. Sure his dignity is and career in the NFL are over but is that really enough? I wanted to see this punk lose his fortune as well as his freedom. Not only is dogfighting a vile act, running a dogfighting ring while signed to a $130 million contract is an obscene act of stupidity. Someone so stupid that he's willing to risk that kind of money and fame isn't fit to live among decent people. Congrats Michael Vick, you're actions make Barry Bonds look like Mother Theresa....only bigger and without the posse of lepers.
Hurricane Dean is bearing down on Mexico. Lets see how the Mexican version of FEMA (if there is such a creature) does. I'm currently reading Doug Brinkley's book on Katrina, The Great Deluge. Fantastic book covering the first week of the disaster. Remember as Krusty says, "Give a hoot! Read a book!"
Hurricane Katrina proved George Bush hates black people. Now a change in policy serves to prove he also hates children:http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/21/washington/21health.html?_r=1&hp&oref=slogin
Maybe hating kids is "in" right now. CBS facing a backlash for a new kid based reality series:http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/la-et-kidnation17aug17,1,7500143.story
I have no interest in this show. I saw Children of the Corn already.

To whoever at FOX that decided Ryan Seacrest should host the Emmy awards...Thanks, now I know I'm not watching. Thanks for making my viewing decision easy.
First it was the adult film industry, now Paramount backs HD DVD or Blu Ray:http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117970524.html?categoryid=1009&cs=1
Bob Dylan and Elvis Costello are going on tour together. That sounds like a fair enough pairing.
Profootballtalk.com is calling on ESPN to fire Emmitt Smith. I couldn't agree more. I tuned into the preseason game pregame show last night to hear the talking heads discuss Vick. Everytime Smith comes on the screen you wish the broadcast had subtitles. This man butchers the English language like he piled up rushing yards. He makes George W. Bush sound eloquent. Emmitt evens makes up new words like "trickilate" (I think he was looking for trickle instead). Its bad enough that we're subject to washed up jocks on sports broadcasts, but if we're gonna be stuck with them, they should at least be able to speak properly.
More crap as it happens.....
