"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Those Balls Are Perfect

Haven't posted for awhile, but this seemed like something to share.

By the way, I read a significant part of the Wells report on DeflateGate and... well, let's just say that my opinion of Tom Brady as a football player hasn't changed, but my opinion of him as a person has gone way down. I don't care about the cheating... deflating balls is not as bad as the obvious steroid and HGH usage that goes on in football. But the Wells report shows pretty clearly that he was perfectly willing to let the locker room guys who probably make less than $50k a year take the hit.

In other words, this is a very very very rich guy basically treating little guys as if they were expendable. Not pretty.

Reminds me a little bit of Bill and Hillary... always ready to let the little people hang.
