The Unrepentant Individual

...just hanging around until Dec 21, 2012

May 24, 2008


Just heard this on Fox News, related to the upcoming NASCAR and Indy races this weekend, regarding Del Earnhardt:

He was a legend in life, and he was a martyr in death.

I’m reminded of The Princess Bride: “I do not think that means what you think it means.”

Dale Earnhardt’s death, while tragic, was an accident. He wasn’t martyred. To suggest as such would be nearly as bad as comparing a presidential candidate to another who was assassinated in June– to score cheap points.

This is just one more reason why I’m glad I no longer watch Fox News (or any of the cable news channels) on a regular basis any more.
