Giving bad a 'bye

A student athlete learns that being talented does not always mean bad behavior will be forgiven:

In the end, Kellen Lewis never figured it out. He never met the leadership burden that comes with being a quarterback and Indiana's best football player. The result — his Hoosier career is over.

Coach Bill Lynch made the call Wednesday afternoon with the blessing of Athletic Director Fred Glass. Officially Lewis was dismissed for violating unspecified team rules. It was the second time he'd violated rules in the last 13 months - the first resulted in a four-month suspension — and was the last straw for Lynch.

Break the rules, pay the price. Wow, what a concept. It should be tried more often.

There must be some mistake...Does Barack know of this? If he finds out we are indiscriminately holding people accountable for their actions, all hell is gonna break loose!

Talk about about putting a stick in Barry's spokes.
