It is a damned shame when people lose their lives, especially when it involves drugs and alcohol. REMEMBER, despite the fact that Howe's past is quite checkered, we don't know if the accident was the result of his being impaired. Perhaps the biggest idiots are those that rush to judgment and place blame and ridicule on someone without knowing the facts or without knowing ANYTHING about addictions. Stick your "Yeah, but he probably . . ." directly up your asses.

It is refreshing to hear some good news ! In the face of circumstances far beyond our control, people actually do respond with compassion, and that is the kind of thing we need to hear more of. And maybe, just maybe, this eample and PROPER COVERAGE will encourage others to follow suit.

The syringe thing was certainly classless. Throwing beers on players, pelting them with batteries, etc. absolutely pales compared to this one: In 1977, Janet Guthrie became the first woman to race in the Indianapolis 500. On her qualifying day, there was a mob of lunatics that sat behind her pit stall. Every time she showed her face, these assholes held up a big air-brushed cut-out sign of a pair of tits pocked by the other driver's autographs, yelling at the top of their lungs, "Sign the sign, sign the sign." It was pretty shocking and rather funny to witness this wild-assed behavior when I was 11, but it continues to blow my mind that this kind of shit happened. Christ, if it happened now, there would be lunatic women selling pricks-in-a-blanket on the White House lawn.

Can anyone imagine how bad those kids feel about having such a douchebag for a father? Especially the girl, having all the talent she needs to win her matches alone. And this bozo slips the mickey. For his sake I hope he gets used to the prison Evian and croissants quickly. Not to mention his new occupation as salad tosser.
