Simon Wright is a journalist who met Pavlos Joseph, a fan who decided to march right into the locker room of the inept English soccer team and give them piece of his mind. He told star soccer player, David Beckham that his play was lackluster and then stormed out. For some strange reason, South African authorities are all upset because Wright not only interviewed the fan, but helped him to find a place of refuge. In the modern world, when we give aid to a stranger, we have to secure identify from the fellow and evidence that he is not a member of a terrorist group. I am glad Jesus Christ does not return, because Fox News or South African police will demand to see his birth certificate. Wright is charged with “defeting or obstructing the administration of justice.”
Has the world gone mad? The fan told Beckham what millions of other fans thought, and now we have a court case. Much ado about nothing, if you ask me. The entire episode is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
