• As you settle back to enjoy holiday football, we have a startling statistic for you regarding the size of college football players. A recent survey which focused on linemen over seven decades revealed the average lineman today weighs more than half again as much as his 1950 counterpart. Over that time, according to a recent news report, the average offensive and defensive lineman grew to just over 290 pounds from just above 190. We can't even predict how big they'll be in another 50 years.
Childhood is a wonderful time! A small child really believes he or she could "catch a falling start and put it … in a pocket." Nothing is impossible. Also, the warmth of love and acceptance comes from family and friends. Nowhere are the problems of finance or payment. Some children even tell their parents, when told they are big boys or girls, "I don't want to grow up." Even the story Peter Pan concerns a group of children who fly off with Peter, who has never had to grow up.
Words have power. If anyone wonders whether conservatives have taken the lead in effective political catch phrases, the term "right to work" should remove all doubt.
