Peter King of NBC reported during Football Night in America that President Barack Obama recently called Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie to congratulate the team for giving quarterback Mike Vick a second chance. President Obama explained that a level playing field rarely exists for prisoners who have completed their sentences. Vick’s success gives all of them hope.
<i>&quot;I&#039;d also like to mention that the dogs Vick and his pals killed would have been killed by the state if they were seized. In fact, the state did kill a bunch of his dogs when he got caught.&quot;</i>
Yeah, but the state doesn&#039;t kill dogs by throwing them down onto concrete, breaking their backs. I&#039;m not sure if you were being snarky, but that seemed like a doofus thing to say.
