    Doug, thank you! Well said!
    Dick Harmon's article last week reminded me of the famous quote by John Maynard Keynes: "It is astonishing what foolish things one can temporarily believe if one thinks too long alone."

    U. Michigan football team has mentioned not too long ago that they too don't want their players in this "Catfish" stuff. It is not just Manti who is dealing with this. Lance should have NEVER been mentioned along with Manti. Can we just drop the whole thing and let Manti move on and hope for the best in finishing the college and NFL? Let the kid have his normal life now. You MEDIAS are just keep on going, going and going is dumb enough!

    Manti? Been there done that.

    @Funkmeister, famous quote? I don't know who John Maynard Keynes is. Anyway I disagree with the quote. It's relative. Sure, if one thinks in an unsound manner too long it can produce foolish conclusions. But studying and researching is all part of longer term thinking. How one thinks is the issue here. Is thinking done objectively or subjectively (are both being combined at times)? Is one reasonable or not? Biased or not? Do they start of as rationalists or have an empirically based thoughts? Do they use collective data or stats? If so, where do they get there information ect....
