    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Right. I could not possibly understand the repercussions that he might suffer. Nope. Way beyond my grasp.

    Good, three months is about right. Give him a chance to fix this, or to show he has not learned.

    Phelps has lost a major endorsement deal and has been suspended for three months by USA Swimming.

    "This is not a situation where any anti-doping rule was violated, but we decided to send a strong message to Michael because he disappointed so many people, particularly the hundreds of thousands of USA Swimming member kids who look up to him as a role model and a hero," the Colorado Springs-based federation said in a statement.

    "Michael has voluntarily accepted this reprimand and has committed to earn back our trust," the statement said.

    Phelps won a record eight gold medals in Beijing and returned to America as one of the world's most acclaimed athletes. He made headlines of a different kind, however, in the wake of the photo, published Sunday by News of the World, a British tabloid.

    Earlier Thursday, cereal and snack maker Kellogg Co. announced it wouldn't renew its sponsorship contract with Phelps, saying his behavior is "not consistent with the image of Kellogg." The swimmer appeared on the company's cereal boxes after his Olympic triumph.

    If all olympians ,from all countries ,were comprehensively tested for pot use, my guess is about half would test positive. They were all clean for the games, but my guess is as they let their hair down anywhere from a few days to a few weeks after the games ended, a few parties were smokey. Weed isn`t the most evil thing on earth. In the world of competitive sports I`m thinking steroids are a much bigger crime, just not as sesational.

    Learned? He smoked weed... Cry me a river. Most of those kids who look up to him now will be trying it when they are in high school, anyway.
