Opinion: Group's video a hoax

Opinion: Group's video a hoax

Years ago, when I hosted a daily talk-radio show, one of the cardinal rules laid down by my program director was to avoid booking guests or taking phone calls from listeners who wanted to debate abortion, gay marriage or the death penalty. All three issues -- and especially abortion -- were considered a conversational dead-end, on which nearly all intelligent adults have already made up their minds.

Fifty meters remained in the second heat of the women?s 200-meter freestyle semifinals, and nobody at Kazan Arena ? not the screaming fans, not the Team USA members assembled to watch their most unbeatable teammate, not the international media horde that long ago ran out of superlatives for the phenom before them ? would have blamed Katie Ledecky, in seventh place at the final turn, for admitting defeat and cruising home.
