should draw those lines, is most of the time, i argue the courts are right to err on the side of more speech, not less. and then there was this on the hit that took out robert griffin, iii, in yesterday's redskins game. craig from king george, virginia, said that hit was illegal. griffin was sliding feet first when weatherspoon slammed his shoulder into the left side of his helmet. weatherspoon could have tackled rg3, but chose to launch at griffin's head. after bounty gate, it will be interesting to see how the commissioner handles this. you are the only person i've heard or seen that says that hit wasn't legal. in the eyes of the officials, griffin was like a runningback going for a first down. besides, he wasn't sliding down, he started to go down, but the guy hit him while he was trying to get down. so he set himself up to get blasted, which is exactly what happened. most of washington stopped breathing for a couple of minutes when rg3 didn't get up right away. i'm hoping he is good to go next week. we would like to have your e-
