A ridiculous amount of national news cycles has been spent on America’s favorite tax dodgers – the NFL and their latest sports cheating scandal, “Deflate-Gate“. – I’ve watched the story either lead, or take second on the TV news all week.

As if there weren’t already entire series of channels devoted to covering sports, such petty concerns dislodge any number of real-world problems. Take the Boko Haram as a single example. The moment that these barbarians would touch one blonde hair of a white American girl, then we’d have a new war to go to. – But until then, we can hardly concern ourselves.
