> want to believe in Lennay Kekua? Did we need to?

I hadn't heard about this until I happened to have the news on last night and saw it as a lead story. Some sports scandal that's rocking the world.

Then when I heard the story, I said, "This is NEWS? Who the hell cares?"

(A rhetorical question, of course: clearly, lots of people do. I can't for the life of me imagine why.)
