 Mistakin' Aiken

It is TRIUMPHALISM which is so repugnant in sports. And in the militia and Christianity and Hollywood and Wall Street for that matter; Victory Victory, Victory ---- at all costs.

 Colleges and universities should do to the intercollegiate athletic associations what Kissinger told Nixon to do in Viet Nam: 

Declare 'victory' and withdraw. 

We don't need to be cultivating a world of Paternos and Sanduskys. 

M. Div. '80, blah blah

It wasn't Kissinger who suggested that (hardly), but Sen. George Aiken from Vermont.

Another reason for me to be a proud Vermonter! This place is an iconoclast's paradise !
Thanks for the correction.
Blah blah '80, etc.
