Re: Week #11 - Games of Interest

Absolutely, and after the Harrick incident I can't say I have much love for them. But I'm trying to imagine how I'd feel if we lost that way, and I can't think of much worse.

When one category of people wields the most power, it is absolutely ok to judge how they've used or abused such power.

Edited to add, that considering how older people are so quick to judge younger generations, I'm ok with younger generations throwing it back and saying look in the mirror.
