    I read recently about a Texas high school team which won 100-0 caused a big uproar. The losing school was a school for students with learning challenges and had few players. The coach was fired and the school administration issued an apology.  It's good to know that such behavior is uncommon and it is punished by communities everywhere (EXCEPT in politics).

    •  To clarify (0+ / 0-)

      The coach was not fired for his actions regarding the game. He was fired when he publicly complained on a blog about the school issuing an apology.

        is not a jerk!  Every time I read a story about some of the jerks we do have, I wonder if the rest of the country thinks we are all like that.  Some of us have a brain and a heart.  We just must use them more quietly, but you know the story of the tortoise and the hare.  Blues are creeping up in Texas.  I have heard the radio spot digging Cornyn about not being at the vote for the stimulus.  I turned it up and enjoyed that.

          All like that. How many comments on this site suggest that Texas should just secede, or be expelled?
          But, we'll keep working on spreading the blue. It will come.

            we don't think you're all like that! But we know better than to mess with Texas:)

            All joking aside (and I believe people are people everywhere), I think this is a very positive story. One coach acted like a jerk (which can happen anywhere) and the administration and the community showed him that it was NOT OK. Kudos to Texans!
