News has reached my undisclosed location that Michael "Courage" Vick is the Eagles' starting quarterback, now and forever. On one level, it's a little ridiculous to compare ousted one-quarter incumbent Kevin Kolb to the plight of the typical U.S. worker -- the dude just got a check for $10 million, after all. On the other hand, the Eagles -- a pretty classless organization from the top down -- have also revealed themselves as the typical American corporation, quick to demote a worker who suffered an on-the-job injury. Even "Obamacare" couldn't protect Kolb and his pre-existing condition.

Discuss this, or what it means to be a bearded Marxist in America.
