Vick's an NFL quarterback, not a head of state. If he's guilty of being the lord of the dog fighting ring, let justice do its thing. But for now, let's stop acting as if the world as we know it will collapse if he doesn't start training camp for the Falcons next week. It's not like Vick is T.O. or anything.
As for Master Potter, he's a fictional character -- not a god. But in Israel some shop owners are thinking of opening on the Sabbath to sell the final book. And the cries rising up from the masses about who will die and potential spoilers for the book, well, it's just reached a frenzy. I blame the terrorists.
Perhaps it's not a bad thing that people can be galvanized around anything anymore, particularly in our world of attention deficit media and marketing. I just wish we could focus on something of true value -- like bowling.
Sermon over. Go back to work now!
