Steve McNair’s life off the field is another story

We got the rhetoric of death with Steve McNair this week, so much of it the false-front rhetoric of death, the way we did with so much of what we saw and heard with Michael Jackson. It is always this way, people remembering what they want to remember and ignoring what they choose to ignore and there is always a level of silliness from even the most well-meaning eulogies, as there was with Jackson this week when Magic Johnson actually expected you to believe that somehow Michael Jackson had made him a better basketball player.
