Sanity Zone 2-6-2013 I Want a New Drug

Posted 02-06-2013 at 08:49 AM by xan

It's time to have a seismic shift in our thinking about the roll drugs play in sports. To set the argument, let's use the example of a non-sports person getting medical attention. From there, we can extend the analysis to explore where we might alter our standards.

Dispensing with the gory details, the key difference between the athlete and the non-athlete with a similar injury is the drug treatment. If the non-athlete uses steroids or HGH or EPO, she will heal faster, have less scar...

Sanity Zone 1-19-2013 Positive Rights

Posted 01-18-2013 at 04:08 PM by xan

In political theory, a positive right is a right that is accorded to you by society. In contrast, a negative right is a right that society can take away from you. Negative rights are freedom of speech, freedom of religious belief, freedom to act in self-preservation.

Fun facts: Since legalizing marijuana in Washington and Colorado, the Broncos & Seahawks ...

Posted 01-07-2013 at 07:51 AM by SloMotion

... are undefeated. Or so I heard on the radio this morning. Performing due diligence prior to posting, I found it's actually a combined record of 15-1, but I did uncover some amusing facts:

- Seattle has gone 7-1, losing only to Miami since legalization. Come on, is there any bigger of a buzzkill than having to travel the width of the country, in a pressurized cabin, and than have to play a game in the Florida heat? They get a pass on that one. They are an impressive 4-0 at...

Lomas, Lomas, Lomas, (smh) ... didn't your mom ever tell you if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all? (and) Like the Detroit Lions need more bad publicity in the character, discipline & self-control department already. 1994? Really? What's your point now, 18yrs later? What's the motivation?

Sanity Zone 12-16-2012 Moral Hazard

Posted 12-19-2012 at 03:30 PM by xan

Its insidiousness has led to a culture of moral hazard.

Moral Hazard is the term used to describe behaviors an individual or group takes knowing that the consequences of those behaviors will be "paid" for by...
