Do people get pets because they're not otherwise getting enough (human) affection?
I suspect this is true. (I'm fairly confident that, in our cultural context at least, there are few human beings that get enough affection...)

This ("WADA chief rebukes McQuaid's attempt to assume Armstrong jurisdiction") makes me happy. Or at least satisfied.
Clearly McQuaid has something to hide. Either to save his own butt or that of Hein Verbruggen. It's the same thing, really.
Verbruggen... What an enigma. I suppose it's a bit narrow-minded of me, but it's hard for me to trust a businessperson-turned-sports-federation-administrator. The biography reeks of an ugly quest for personal power. It's hard to believe he's not a small, petty person. The kind of person that holds a grudge. Who sees organizational power as a means for personal gain. And that, you know, is what "corruption" means.
