    I can do without Marc Hansen bringing up Randy Brown again. This just hurts Iowa State's image.

    Another example of life taking out it's anger on ISU athletics.

    I can't really come up with a coherent thought on this one. I am usually one for forgiveness, but it's pretty tough to sell forgiveness for that one.

    Those in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

    I will throw stones at brown. My house is not made of glass. Also this guy took advantage of Children. I do not forgive for that type of Crap.

    Look at adult porn all you want. Nothing wrong with that. Hell I would be in jail for life.

    I'm trying not to throw stones. At the same time, I am not living in a glass house either. I can't say I am perfect, but this isn't drunk driving or something similar that we are talking about.

    In who's eyes is drunk driving any better then this? The mother of a child who was killed by a drunk driver would probably say they are the same.

    Also the "those who live in glass houses should not throw stones" thing. How many people live in glass houses? I was never sure how that got started but we should change it to something like "those who live in wood houses should not throw fire bombs at each other".

    Ok, bad example. Public intox? Whatever. Crimes involving children are particularly heinous in my mind, and take it to a different level.

    It can be attributed to Chaucer circa 14th century.

    As as side note, you are saying I should not have build my foundation out of glass? Wow, this is going to require a lot of work to reverse that mistake.

    If you were drunk in public, taking a wizz and a kid saw you.....BAM...... Sex offender.

    We could go on all day. I'm not perfect, I judge.

    Because ISU athletics has suffered more than anyone because of this...

    I give the guy and mostly his family credit for helping him get through this. I can't understand what he did and I find it appalling, but for him to face up to it and be able to overcome it and to talk about it now, takes some strength. Even more, for his wife to stand beside him throughout is a testament to her strength and character.

    I understand your point, but I cannot think of a crime worse than sexual abuse against a child. Someone once described it as stealing a child's soul.

    Exactly. People who do this create a market for people who distribute it. Randy may have straightened his life out, and if so, I am proud of him for that, but there are children who will never feel normal because of this. Obviously, no punishment for the offender will ever take that away, but it's really hard to find sympathy for anyone here but the victims.

    Not that it really matters, but I don't think he ever abused a child as in physically, doesn't really matter but I think some people think he had kids in his office everyday....
