Deep Thoughts

LeMew, wryly: "I am absolutely shocked that, despite a near-total lack of precedent, a wealthy professional athlete has engaged in sexual relations with persons to whom he is not married, and I hope that cable news will devote more time to these remarkably surprising and important revelations."

Liss, not so wryly: I wouldn't mind more time if there were even an infinitesimally fleeting possibility that any of it would be dedicated to a serious discussion of why it might be that so many wealthy professional male athletes evidently regard women as one of the entitlements and privileges of their success. You know, like VIP seating and Hummers.
