guilt by association

Just as Chris Benoit's admirable career and various achievements are forever tarnished and diminished by his murdering his wife and child, any success Joe Paterno had as a football coach is sullied and stained by his negligence toward the horrific child abuse happening under his watch. He may have been a great coach and may have many accolades and accomplishments under his belt, but these are all overshadowed by the child abuse in which he is complicit.

The difference between Benoit and Paterno? Benoit may have committed the crimes himself, but Paterno's victims are still alive and still suffering for his silence.

and I'M the bad guy

I get it. Tim Tebow luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuvs himself some Jesus. I get that he can be a good football player. I get that he luvs to tell everyone how much he luvs him the Lord -and isn't that brave? (actually, no, it's not. it's just cliche pandering and self-aggrandizement.) But holy shit, Rich Eisen! And everyone else! Do I have to come over there and slap Tebow's dick out of your mouth?!

10,000 strong

I've been angry about this for over a month. I think I'll try to get it out of my system:

As of this moment 10,719 people "like" the Facebook page "RIP Cameron Lee DeVeronica 2/16/97-11/29/11" a page in remembrance of a teen who appears to have taken her life over the bullying she experienced.

Where the fuck were these ten thousand people when Cameron was alive?

I wonder if things would have turned out differently if, in life, she'd realized she had that much support.

Happy fucking Friday.
