So since it has been discovered all we have heard about is that the superstar Patriot quarterback is being accused of being dishonest for using deflated footballs because they are easier to grip and catch in order to win their way to the super bowl. In the article Mike Downey talks about this as well as questioning what about the former New England past catcher who has been charged with cold blooded murder and is about to stand trial for it and let’s not forget about the things that the football team members that have done that are so much worse than this possible infraction. Are we to praise these men for getting to the super bowl or scorn them for getting here by cheating their way to the almighty achievement? The author Mike Downey continues to talk about the amounts of money that several teams and members of teams have been fined over the years for the behaviors that have been deemed unacceptable ranging from 20,000 upwards to 500,000 but that never seems cease the behaviors they just seem to continue on with the hopes of not getting caught.

Bolo believes that being a man entails that he should be strong, brawny, and use brute force to solve his problems. This can be seen in Chapter 3 when he suggests that they kill Prince and also when the police lock up the church and his mother is caught in it. After the Americans come to Bonasse stick fighting was banned and Bolo became gloomy and dull since they took away a big part of his life.

"I knew it was one-on-one so as long as Ify kept going it was going to be him and that guy and it was either going out of bounds or he was going to catch it," Fales said.

The Letter for Change In the spring of 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. was arrested on April 12 for his protests and demonstrations and sat in a cell of a Birmingham jail. Eight of Alabama’s top white religious leaders issued a formal statement calling the boycott of white stores in Birmingham “unwise and untimely” (King, Martin Luther, 1929-1968). Some people believed the issue would be resolved on its own time and Dr. King was just stirring the pot and causing trouble. Others agreed with Dr. King that racism had to be addressed directly and immediately. Most of Dr. King’s followers believed his arrest was unjust and he should have been instantly released.
He ended up getting attacked by an angry mob within one minute of starting his speech. Very interesting ideas about free speech they have down there. They are actually protesting for more government interference in their lives. They want government to seize assets of the rich. They want government to dictate to corporations and take their money from them by force.
Is the BCS fair? Again Bill Hancock argues heavily that it cannot get fairer than the BCS. Central to his argument in defense of the BCS is Hancock’s interview with Gary Patterson, the head football coach of Texas Christian University (TCU). TCU is a smaller school than most would expect to be against the BCS, but Hancock highlights Patterson’s support for the system.

This shows he cares more about what is right for the people then his own personal benefits. The authors used very strong language quoted by Del. Davis throughout the paper such as, “the death penalty is flawed, ineffective and racially biased. And if we can get enough people to understand that, then in a few years we can repeal the death penalty in the United States once and for all” (Jealous & Braveboy, p. 11). Those sentences speak a lot about how powerful words can affect us.
