David Walsh has written one of the most accurate assessments of sports-crazed America that I have read. The fascination with sports figures has long concerned me, and perplexed me. I did not understand this. But, he is correct, we do live in a moral and intellectual vacuum and there are no legitimate figures in our society that offer hero status. The moral and intellectual vacuum will exist as long as the useless politicians refuse to raise education to its proper level in capitalist America.
Good job David!!!
