The post I never wanted to write

A couple of entires down I mentioned the story of a man shooting his son's ex-football coach. One of the dangers of parental misbehavior is that the kid loses all joy in the sport; I never thought to mention the more obvious danger. (Hat tip to the Coalition's Mr. Bingley.)

Just a tragedy? A freak accident? A "terrible mistake"? Or perhaps the inevitable result of misbehaving adults and the in-your-face professional sports gangsta image? There are a lot of people who need to be looking hard in the mirror before we have a run on youth-sized coffins.

Rest in peace, Jeremy.
