    On my end it's factual. On discussions where cultural matters are involved - I guess I'd include food, since you equate big sales to greatness - I'll take your opinions with a large grain of salt. On...

    I get a chill every time they sing La Marseillaise during Casablanca and I've seen that movie 6 times easy. That probably answers it for me. Same basic feeling I get when I re-watch Lewis/Powell or...

    Possibly, but in 2013 there were 25 women running 11.1 or better and only 9 running 22.4. 5 of those 9 ran both. To balance the two races you'd need to get to 22.7. Running 11.1 isn't rare nor is it...

    With only one female runner in the top-40 (TFN version) from the 100-1500 in the last two years, I'd say the issue is more dire than trying to produce a mediocre 200-meter runner (World Class...
