    Oh, and before you think I have never played. I was a 4A track finalist at the Florida Relays in 80-81, starting safety for 3 years in high school. Still workout plenty just don't see the reason to run 26.2 miles to say I did it.
    Glad to hear you are active and good luck to you in staying active through your life.

    Marathon training taught me a great deal about life, about working hard and about not measuring things by the shortest time but by the long haul. It helped me in oh so many ways over the last thirty plus years. It teaches you patience and it teaches you pacing. All but a very few elite Marathon runners do not run by a watch but for us the calendar is the most important thing to keep our eyes on. That is a good rule in life as well.

    Re: 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson suspended by A&E

    I've just read that the 4th season is in the can and A&E intends to run it with Phil in the episodes. By the time they're ready to film the fifth season people will have moved on and forgotten about the subject.

    so you see a similarity between a show centered around current events and informing the audience of world events and a comedy about eccentric people

    But again, the Duck guy surely had a personal conduct clause that holds a person to not damage the program via personal action. It doesen't stop him from doing stupid things, it just say that his azz will be canned if he does damage the brand.

    Don't tell me you are against the free market?
    So how did Phil's answer to GQ, "Damage the brand"? Oh, and it is not A&E's brand....It's Phil's.

    Yes I have. They may continue the show or maybe not.

    They are talking to A&E right now. A&E will decide which is better for them.

    Re: 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson suspended by A&E

    The Robertson family just drew a line in the sand with A&E -- NO PHIL, NO SHOW ... and says they are already talking to the cable channel about possibly pulling the plug on "Duck Dynasty."

    The family issued a statement saying, "As a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of 'Duck Dynasty.'"

    They also say they're "disappointed" that Phil Robertson was suspended by A&E just for expressing his religious beliefs ... which, they point out, is his "constitutionally protected right."

    Fun fact: "Duck Dynasty" is the highest rated cable reality TV show ever.

    Way to go A&E.

    We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E's decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Phil would never incite or encourage hate.We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right.We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty. Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.

    Maybe you're confusing your homos. It could well be that those who are "proud of their sin" are simply trying to let others now that there is no shame in being Gay. Maybe only Gay Christians are guilt ridden and stuck hiding their sexuality----seems to me the Rev Ted haggard fits that mold.

    There are some legitimate reasons for divorce in the Bible, such as adultery. However, I miss seeing the adultery pride and divorce pride parades.
    Plenty of people promoting open-marriages out there.
