It's both. It's my opinion based on reading up on the issue bolstered by my own morals and values. As a sports columnist, I'm no less beholden to base what I say on facts than any reporter is.

Your poll stats tell us that there are a lot of people who don't care about the nickname. I acknowledged that. The "groundswell" is represented by all the examples I provided. Those people affect how people think. At the same time, my entire point was that a majority of people who answered a poll saying that they don't give a crap shouldn't outweigh the fact that a small part of the population is suffering real consequences from the type of stereotyping that the nickname and logo reinforce.

I took that position and backed it up. That's my job.

I love that Mary Magdalene song. Better get some flame-retardant knickers, for where you're going (save me a seat).

They were pretty mystified by this, and the fact that he grabbed a quarter was negligible, Pletcher said. For all the pre-race hype, I thought Repole handled himself well. You speak of karma ... Repole was kicking himself for watching the Secretariat movie the night before.

Wow. Swift Warrior was a busy boy last year. Nine starts at 2? He's the anti-Uncle Mo, from an experience standpoint.

Bob, as far as being an all-around good guy, your dad ran the table.

I don't know about this Scoop dude, but Newsie appears to have a high-volume fluid stowing capacity. Just sayin'

Samuel L. Jackson, some snakes and a plane ... need I say more?
