Subject: One iceskater I won't be rooting for (slightly sensitive)
Date: January 15, 2006 at 1:47 pm PST

Figure skater Sasha Cohen, age 21, is back in the news. She won the
U.S. Figure Skating Championship Saturday night in Turin, Italy, and
is assured a place on the U.S. Olympic team. And she has a modeling
contract. She also has ties to the U.S. beef industry where she tries
to peddle dead animal parts to adolescent and prepubescent girls/ice
skating wannabies. She has a "fun & games" corner on the beef
industry's website, recipes that include beef on her official website,
& when girls email in asking for her dietary tips, she's always sure
to mention beef protein for strength and energy in addition to fruits
& vegetables. She may be outwardly beautiful at the age of 21, but I
think her earning extra cash of the backs of suffering and dead
animals is UGLY. She's my nationality and ethic group, but I will NOT
be rooting for her in the Olympics.
