NFL Head Cases
The Reuters headline reads Over 100 more former NFL players sue over head injuries, wherein we read that these 100 NFL players are joining the ranks of 1,500 other retired NFL players who have already sued over head injuries.
I consider these lawsuits much as I consider lawsuits against tobacco companies, wherein individuals claim that due to tobacco companies advertising the joys of smoking, they happily smoked the years away as if there were no dangers what-so-ever to smoking. Both are foolish, baseless, and a symptom of the victim mentality pervading society.
As an accompaniment to this news item, I offer you the lyrics to Verve Pipe’s I’ve Suffered A Head Injury.
