Truth in Toons
Number 11 gets my vote
A different viewpoint
If Vick was was pink, purple or green, the same uproar would be heard. In the 'real world' if certain rules are abused, if ethics in a company are ignored, the abuser finds him/herelf out of a job. Vick lied initially, not only to the courts, the media and public, but to his ultimate boss, the NFL. When his pals started talking Vick had these choices - keep up the lie or admit the truth. The NFL has some work to do in their hiring process on ethics.
Humans of all colors view the antics of Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Nick Nolte, Larry Craig and myriad other 'famous' names and faces with various forms of disgust and misgiving. It's in our face every day. Why should Vick be viewed differently - because he isn't blonde or in his 60's?
