Here in Decatur we are in the strangest weather pattern! Since May, we have had about 1/2 inch of rain. If you drew a 15-mile circle around us, you would find that everyone has had multiple inches of rain in that same time span. Yesterday as many areas had flash floods, I recorded 2/10ths of an inch. Very strange. We are desperately in need of a gully washer here.
So Michael Vick has been reinstated. Here's a shocker: PETA has threatened to boycott any team that signs him. I have a couple of thoughts about that:
1. I doubt members of PETA would be a huge fan base in any market.
2. Vick has paid his dues -- more severe than what many athletes have paid for crimes. I am certainly not defending what he did, but it seems that vehicular manslaughter or possibly being an accessory to a murder are not considered to be as serious of crimes as "dogfighting." Give the guy a 2nd chance.
What do you think?
