My car was totaled two weeks ago. Even though I do not believe the story given by the young driver, I have sympathy for her.

A recent Sports Illustrated article about Paralympics rower Blake Haxton made me stop and think. It made me realize that I, like many others, was looking at the method and not the message.

Before I write what I intend to write for this week's column, I have to make one more comment about the National Football League and some of its players. I no longer have any respect for the NFL, and many of its players are trying to divide the country - not bring unity.
