WHEN Michael Vick gives his little talks to the students, he tells them to do the right thing, stay in school and get a good education. Not once did I ever hear of him talking about abusing animals and telling the students how wrong it is. He should be telling kids how wrong it is to torture and kill animals.

Isn't that what the Eagles want him to get across to these kids? Or does the team just want him to do what every other NFL player does (who isn't an ex-con for running an illegal dog-fighting ring) - merely tell kids to stay in school and do the right thing?
