"A society is ultimately judged by how it treats its weakest and most vulnerable members."
But it SHOULD be judged by whether or not it allows vuvuzelas at its sporting events.
South Africa is both host to the FIFA 2010 World Cup, and source of mankind's most originally annoying sound. By failure to appropriately acknowledge the worldwide rage at the cacophony, FIFA will inexplicably allow it to continue.
Translation: the desire of the crowd to be a more compelling component than the game itself is proof once and for all that soccer...yes, soccer, deserves to be considered no more than a slightly amusing activity only barely more relevant than the other suspensions of reality that is elementary school recess: Kick-Ball, Four-Square, and Duck, Duck, Goose!
Gee whiz, soccer...I thought you said you wanted to finally be taken seriously.
