I have been in love with football since my early years and this interest translated into devoting countless hours of my life watching and thinking about the National Football League. In my youth, professional football players did not wear extensive equipment, they simply ran out on the field and played football. There is no question these football players were not men who weighed over 300 pounds, simply a group of men who enjoyed being on the field. Many simply did not have any protective gear, why worry when your main goal was to catch the ball or tackle another player. Since that era we have evolved into football teams whose players seek to hurt those on the other team. Player after player winds up with traumatic damage to their brains or body.
Chris Borland is a player for the San Francisco Forty-Niners and is in his second year in the NFL. Mr. Borland informed his coach that enough was enough. He decided to end his career because the danger to his body and brain was too great. So, he gave up wealth for health. l have a hunch this young man will grow into a healthy old man while his teammates will become wealthy and ill. So, which is the wise choice, healthy or wealthy?

The only surprise about the latest shooting in Ferguson, Missouri is why it took so long to happen. Some nut cases decided to blast away at police in this troubled town. The shooting occurred a few days after release of a report by the Justice Department which proved the courts and police of Ferguson deliberately and systematically abuse the rights of those with dark skins. This town runs on money obtained from fines imposed by the police upon African Americans. I thought our Constitution forbid the imprisonment of those who had debts, but in Ferguson they throw in jail anyone with a black skin who can not pay a traffic ticket. After decades of such behavior what is so surprising that some men decided to take the law into their own hands” After all, the cops have not paid any attention to the Constitution so why should ordinary citizens?
President Obama has denounced the shooting. Who can defend such behavior? However, who can be surprised at such behavior? Allow violence to become the norm and eventually the violence will enter your life. Such is the way of life.
