    Who's also over 50, I freely admit that we're completely and utterly not oppressed. The reason we don't make headlines about our status is that we already own the newspapers, the paper mills that provided the paper, the ink manufacturers and the trucking company that made it all possible.

    So a guy who's sure to catch hell because he pushes back against a status quo wherein he doesn't have my built-in genetic and generational advantages? A guy who bares his personal life so that others similarly positioned might have it easier by following in his wake? Yes, that's heroic.

    It's good to be Tim Brando; too bad Brando doesn't know it yet. Some day, because of people like Jason Collins, it'll be equally good to be a member of a social group that isn't similarly blessed in today's America.
