I'd invoke Irony here, but this bit of the USA's history and present is just too depressing to try and find cynical humor. I AM glad that the actual, scientifically arrived at, truth is being reported though.
I'm not sure how I feel about Bob's thesis, which is that people in the public eye/people with a fanbase have an obligation to act better than the private citizen. It sounds reasonable enough and I can't automatically think of anything to refute it, but I'll have to turn that around in my head some more.
Thanks for sharing, Ken!
