    Well said, Amy. I read that same quote about Lolo Jones, and thought it was out of line. There is NOTHING WRONG with women expressing themselves the same way that men do when it comes to 'the thrill of victory, or the agony of defeat'. And hey, if they make a little money on the side - whether it be because of their apparent beauty, or because they're just plain good at what they do, then more power to 'em. That is what our Free Market Society is all about.

    Lest the press and men take all the blame, let us not forget that her fellow female American competitors went after Lolo with claws bared, jealous that she'd received more attention than they, rather than just acknowledging that Lolo and her management did a better job of promoting her than others' did, and seeking her out for advice.

    But this is just the press that are saying these stupid things, because they must have something sensational or controversial to attract readers--printing boring news is just not enough anymore in this day when all news has become tabloid news. Only blame the writers Amy.
