From Rich Sandomir's New York Times column, February 17th:
Every time Alex Rodriguez defaulted Tuesday to saying he was stupid, naïve or ignorant for taking steroids, I thought of Dean Wormer’s words to the flunking frat boy Flounder in "Animal House:" "Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son."
(via reader Tony B.)

Not to mention telling a thoroughly unconvincing tale about unnamed cousins and never talking about it with all his fellow Texas juicing teammates.

Sorry, Carl. I think the experience of many Democrats in Congress (Barney Frank and Chuck Rangel come to mind) would clearly belie the validity of this statement.

Hrm. Word Verification: "Terdnes"
