Just a bit Rummy? - [12:28 PM]

CNN: "The timing of Monday's editorial was prompted not by midterm elections, scheduled for Tuesday, but by Bush's statement earlier this week that he intends to keep Rumsfeld and Vice President Dick Cheney in their posts through the end of his term, Hodierne said."

Yes, Macs can crash - [3:48 PM]

Greg Raiz:"This is essentially the Mac version of the blue screen of death. Everything locks up, I can't move the mouse I can't cancel the operation." - Of course a Mac can crash, they were built by humans.

I understand your pain - [7:18 AM]

ESPN: "Martin said the knee became a 'bone-on-bone' situation when the damaged cartilage was removed during surgery in December. He was slow to recover and was placed on the physically-unable-to-perform list before training camp so he could rehabilitate the knee." - I lived with a cartilage tear and bone spur in my left knee for about four years before deciding to do something about it. During that time my knee stayed swollen and was weakened, due to fluid build up, which wouldn't allow the muscles around the knee to operate properly. Two years ago I had my knee cleaned up, the torn(peeled) cartilage was removed as well as the bone spur. Three days post-op I was able to walk without crutches. A little over a month later I tried to return to softball. I played in three games that day, running was excruciating. It took a week for the swelling to go away. That was the last softball game I played for over a year-and-a-half, I've played in one non-competitive tournament since. Bone-on-bone is not pleasant.

There are options for Mr. Martin. I discussed the possibility of cartilage replacement with my doctor. If I remember correctly it would mean six months with my leg immobilized to allow the cartilage to grow. Six months is a very long time, especially for a professional athlete, but if it worked maybe he could play without pain?

At this point I'd be looking at quality of life. For me day-to-day has been much better than before the surgery and that's something. Curtis Martin has nothing to prove to the NFL. He's arguably the most underrated running back the game has ever seen. Riding off into the sunset while you can still walk is not a bad idea.
