Losing faith

Jesse Owens smoked, drank beer, had sex with a woman and then married another, and, particularly heinous, talked back to his coach.

And a Columbus reporter lost faith.

The Ohio Constitution says idiots are not eligible as electors. I'll be filing a complaint with the secretary of state if this guy is registered.

There was a TV movie that covered this all in the 70s. I recall Tom Bosley played Jimmy Hoffa

Someday I'll have to school you on scrutability. You're failing my exacting standards.

The linked article claimed this new film was the first time all this stuff about Jesse Owens was addressed in a movie. I assume you know what is in your links.

I agree the writer is a fool but then again he writes for something called "Buckeyextra"

Unlikely assumption.

But I did look up Tom Bosley on IMDB, that is, his role. I like the idea of Tom as Kaiser Sose. (It was 1984 or 82, by the way, which raises a question of your age grouping. ColumbusGal is five years younger than I am, so we have interesting cultural gaps in what we remember from the 1970's and 1980's.)

And I was just foolin about the schoolin. I figured that was clear.
