    Lots of people have run the mile under 3:53,93, but Michel Jazy did it first.[/quote]

    It may take a squad of 10 or 12, but they do mean well.

    Her running style is really exciting. You know that whoever wins the race she is in, they won't get it easily--they really will have to work hard for it.

    Re: What are you reading now?

    Nearly done with another very good book:
    Jean Edwards Smith's "Eisenhower: in War and Peace" (2012); nicely written and justly sympathetic to its subject.

    Re: Brief Obama Critique

    No, none needed. That screed you wrote a few years ago was a distressing lame recycling of the standard right-wing talking points. Nothing new, or interesting, or actually thoughtful about it at all.

    Pretty obviously he doesn't. Aaronk has a Lake Wobegon attitude toward track events: they ALL should be above average…make that WAY above average…., or even better, they ALL need to be in the...

    This amazes me. Other than here, do you spend all your time with folks who already agree with you on everything? I know I don't.

    Emphatically yes. This recent cultural climate of demonizing/dismissing "elite" or "expert" opinion is really rather mind-boggling. The medical field, collectively, knows vastly more than any...

    Re: How clean do you believe T&F is today?

    Slight disagreement: People are wired to "succeed" (some more than others, but the 'will to power' or perhaps "to prestige' isn't a trivial thing)--and we have the mental machinery to find endless...

    Re: Hobby Lobby's new ad

    This kind of "piety" is pretty much exactly what the Founding Fathers did NOT have in mind.

    The absurdity of a corporation being considered as a person just blows my mind. One of the SC's most...

    Re: "Unbroken" [RIP Louis Zamperini]

    This is sad news, but not surprising. He had a remarkable life and enjoyed a near-ideal kind of recognition and adulation in the last 5 years.

    Re: Retiring in Eugene?

    Great town; the university is a huge asset; great beer fests and farmers' markets; the surrounding landscape is gorgeous; etc. It does get a LOT OF RAIN, however.

    Yes, I can see that. I have a close friend who is most interested in the PV. He walked out of the 1996 Olympic W10,000 final without thinking about it for one second.

    Totally true. Jager seems to me to be a monster talent here and I love his long, fluid running style. I'd wager that he can do 8 flat…and hopefully a tad under. Also very nice to see Cabral, the CT...
