    Re: Marion Jones 'Announcement'-Bee Column

    Thanks for that article.
    I totally agree- if marion has nothing to woory about she said just train and run. No news conferences, no anything. If she has nothing to wrry about then she is wasting yime and effort on something that will not amount to anything. Who is advising her????? She obviously can't make her own decisions wisely.

    Moore was the toast of Cannes. Can't get much more international than that.

    Also, international enough to poke his nose in our affairs. Trouble is that he doesn't understand the law of unintended consequences:

    "But I actively wonder whether his celebrity anti-endorsement might be the straw that brings down the overloaded camel. It's a tight race and American interference with the decision-making of Canadians might just be the thing to tip the scales. Mr. Moore being the offender in this case, it's logical to assume that Canadians will vote opposite what this blustering Yankee suggests. The question is: How many votes for Stephen Harper is Michael Moore's warning us about Stephen Harper worth?"

    A pointed joke, nevertheless. Those 3 just don't quite have the same international profile, nor quite the same reputation...

    I have tired of Marion's strategy of portraying the USADA as the bad guys and trying to use the public arena to force the authorities to act hastily in hopes of gaining a berth of our Olympic team.

    I find deplorable, sad and lame her actions in the past couple of weeks.

    If she is innocent, she should zip her pie hole and settle it in the correct process.

    Trying to portray the USADA as a bunch of jerks just does not resonate

    Ok Mel. Too subtle. I don't get it. I'm sorry to say that you will have to spell that out for me.

    Would have laughed a lot harder if you would have used Michael Moore, Al Franken or Alec Baldwin instead of Bush. Has Baldwin hired that moving company yet by the way? He said he was going to leave the country if Bush won. Last pic I saw of him was in the NYT magazine and pretty sure it was in front of some kind of east coast palatial summer retreat. Don't let the door hit you on the way out...

    I literally get asked about my accent everyday. Usually respond, "What accent? I speak English", then have to explain that I'm not an Australian. Argh too.

    Look to the anchormen of the major US networks. They are taught

    Hold it! One of those anchormen IS one of you! Peter Jennings is a Canuck! (and not a hockey player) ;^) (PS, the Bush as a boor statement was meant as a joke...)

    Also, why do Americans say 'erb when it's got a f****** h in it? (to quote
    >the hilarious Eddie Izzard)...and, lastly, when Wimbledon starts I'll spend
    >most of the 2 weeks telling people it's WimbleDon, not WimbleTon!

    Look to the anchormen of the major US networks. They are taught to speak "properly" and they sound a lot closer to you and me than the typical 'Merican. 'Nuff said.
