"Cock fighting is illegal in many states, something about being a barbaric sport. But we can pay human beings to assualt each other and that's just fine. That this "Sport" is gaining in popularity is symptomatic of the increasing brutatlity, vulgarity, and free fall decline of popular taste, as predicted by Alexis de Tocqueville. It is also yet another reminder, as if we needed one, of the many parallels to the declining Roman Empire. Can Alaric be far?" -- John Lenahan, a nytimes.com reader commenting on a blog post about the Liddell - Jackson fight.
