It's bread and circus, baby. I'm reading Morgan Spurlock's "Where in the World is Osama bin Laden", but on deck is Susan Jacoby's "The Age of American Unreason" which deals with this very subject matter...the dumbing down of America.

By the way, Spurlock's book is quite good.

I know that name from somewhere. Is he the guy that did the Supersize Me documentary? If it's the same guy, I'll need to check out the book you mentioned.

Yup. Even if you aren't a fan, he brings both levity (in an okay way) and brevity to pretty heavy material. Even a Browns fan can probably understand (sorry, can't pass up the op).

I watched that video about a month and a half ago while taking MAC (Modern Army Combatives, Level 1.) They ensured that all of us (prospective) instructors had a good nutritional foundation to go with the physical requirements and thought that video would be insightful.

As for the comment, I'd have done the same. No worries!
