A Sensible Viewpoint

For those of you who haven't heard, there is all sorts of hubbub right now over the Texas High School basketball game that ended in a 100-0 drubbing. Almost every article depicts the game as an unnecessary throttling of helpless kids. The coach has been fired and the whole thing is a mess.

Well finally someone has offered a sensible viewpoint on the issue. I encourage you to give it a read, if only to clarify for yourself that "Learning Difficulties" are very different from Mental Disabilities, and that there is no reason that somebody who has trouble in an academic setting should be inherently bad at sports. This comes from Splice Today, which is also linked in my sidebar. It is a relatively young website that provides insight and commentary on a wide variety of issues, including sports from time to time. It also finds and links (in their leftmost column) some of the most entertaining news that you'll find on the internet.
