However, regarding Mornings On The Mall co-host Larry O'Connor, one might be advised to turn a skeptical ear.
On the 11/4/23 edition, he intoned that the only law he believed in in regards to the immigration debate was that of supply and demand.
So does that mean that if there was a market for outright slavery that that particular form of peonage would be acceptable?
O'Connor's response regarding news of the alleged harassment by Miami Dolphin's Ritchie Incognito of teammate Jonathan Martin involving death threats and the expression of a desire to defecate in his victim's mouth was little better in terms of the moral position enunciated.
According to O'Connor, instead of filing a complaint about the matter, a 300 pounder should have settled the issue like a man.
That is, of course, being euphemism to take the matter outside.
As we learned from Kenny Rogers' “Coward Of The County”, sometimes you have to fight when you're a man.
However, Martin's girth is of no relevance, especially when he'd be confronting others of similar size possibly given to homoerotic violence.
Why shouldn't Martin avail himself of the procedures intended for the purposes of preventing the situation from escalating to a point of no return where the individual defending himself might end up facing a litany of legal or criminal charges?
