Death penalty for Miami Hurricanes? How about the death penalty for corporations who kill?

USA Today has the story about violations at The Miami Hurricanes, and how the NCAA has a “death penalty” provision for teams who engage in egregious ethics violations. That is probably a good policy. But, what about having a death penalty for other entities, such as corporations who are involved in ethics violations, or worse, […]

Hank Steinbrenner claims his Yankees are victims of socialism, but is he the real socialist?

Hard-hitting gender story about Caster Semenya situation

KW: I have excerpted the story from The Root/repost at Reclaim the Media below about Caster Semenya and gender testing. The story itself is even more controversial.

Michael Phelps: Swimming success; ADHD; and marijuana no surprise

KW: I do not think it is a great idea to smoke marijuana. The fact that it is illegal, means that there is a shady, black market for the substance, which using marijuana will support. And, I have known people that smoked marijuana a long time, and you can tell. Still, as  a green and […]
