Second Chances

  Sure, everyone deserves a second chance.   But, geez, did Michael Vick bounce back or what?   He just signed a 100 million dollar contract with the Eagles, 40 million of it guaranteed!
 Not bad for a dog killer.
  Now, do I believe he deserves the second chance, uh huh.   But (again with the buts), I believe his time spent in prison was pretty cush.   I'm sure he had celebrity status and was admired by the other inmates.   What would my punishment have been?  Well, there is a story in mythology where Prometheus, as punishment for bringing fire to mortals, has his liver eaten by an eagle every day only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day.    How about with Vick we let a pit bull gnaw on his leg daily and have it mystically grow back to be chomped again the next day?  Seems appropriate.  OK, a bit harsh.  Maybe Vick should have to forfeit, say, 30 mill of that contract to pit bull rescue organizations.   That sounds a little more reasonable, think about it Mike....
