I don't care about the NBA, but I do care about the economy, and in that vein it is true we'd all be better off if this got resolved. I want rich people to keep spending money, thank you.

But I do take issue with the use of "unpatriotic," as applied to not closing a business deal that would be helpful to the economy. Let's not water down important words like "patriotic." Patriotism is being involved with civics, voting, serving, respecting our laws and history, honoring defenders of freedom and founders of our constitution, knowing the constitution, etc. It is NOT signing a lucrative contract deal that will help money flow, nice as that would be for us all.

To me, it's a sad commentary on our society when we place spectator sports in such high regard. People like them, fine. I do too. But if we would put as much energy and study into politics instead of fantasy leagues, maybe we would quite putting bozos into office and everybody would be a lot better off. (And politics is every bit as much fun to watch, study, and discuss as basketball.)

A long and gloomy winter without basketball? Oh no! Maybe you could get a hobbie, volunteer some time to a worthy cause, or read a good book. You know, something worthwhile.

We could be in for a far better winter of rerun sitcoms on tv if basketball is not there to displace them from television.

As a teacher, I was absolutely disgusted by watching professional sports personalities being paid more for playing a single game of baseball, football or basketball than my colleagues and I earned for a full year of hard work.

Somehow, this country has misplaced its priorities.

Who cares about theis ego-maniacs in the NBA? I don't. I don't care to hear them whine about their paltry salaries ever again. I used to enjoy watching pro basketball, when I was young. The players have changed. For the most part they look and act like no good thugs. They set a very poor example for our youth who seem to follow their lead in making tatoos vogue and worldliness the norm.
So let them have their lockout while the rest of society tries to figure out how to pay the mortgage.
