Nothing Wrong

While Michael Phelps is absolutely a great swimmer, I was never a big fan, mostly because he seemed more marketing robot than human.  If anything, seeing him come off his pedestal this last weekend moved his stature up a notch or two in my book.  Now, in response to all the whiney blogs lamenting the damage he’s doing to the youth of America by being a poor role model, and the various holier-than-thous who seem to think a criminal prosecution is appropriate mandated to prove the impartiality of the system, please read the best post out there.  The letter he should have sent.  [via]
