    In regards to the Manti Te’o catfish/internet hoax story, try looking at it a bit differently. It is more than just the story of a guy that was either naive enough to fall in love with a girl he’d only met online, or crazy enough to create this story in an attempt to gain publicity and even the Heisman Trophy. It’s the issue that a prized male ND athlete was considered a victim just hours after the story broke, but the sexual assault allegations made by female victims and the multiple deaths the university faced were given little to no respect. Lizzy Seeberg, a close friend of mine, was the actual victim of sexual assault. She accused a football player of committing the act and it took 15 days, 5 days after she took her own life, for him to be interviewed. Where is her respect, attention and private investigator to sort out the details? These are all things Te’o received, but neither Lizzy, nor Declan Sullivan or the other ND victims received anything close to that. That, in my opinion, is what makes this story important, not that someone may have been dumb enough to fall in love with someone who never existed.

      Wow, your comment puts it all into perspective. Thanks for that. It is very sad how some of these “learning” institutions have their priorities so screwed up.

    Trent, you should deffo check out Shameless! I had never seen it and started season one on Jan 1st and had caught up to the end of season two by January 4th. (Don’t judge….I was on staycation!)
    Such a fantastic mix of humor and heart, I’ve since then gotten 5 more friends addicted to it. Best show I’ve been introduced to in ages. Within the first 10 minutes you realize it’s a keeper.

      Shameless is great! The acting is sooooo good, especially by the two guy teenagers. It is a fantastic ensemble, and it is also pretty fun at the same time.

    Shameless is one of the best shows on TV. I’ve watched it from the very beginning and am so excited for the third season

    AHH I love that you posted about Casey Desmond. She’s been big in Boston for years, so awesome that she’s finally getting her break!

    I will add to the Shameless chorus. My husband and I found it by accident and have been hooked since! We would watch an episode in bed and when it ended look at each other with guilty faces (because we knew we should go to sleep) and say, “Just one more.” And so it continued… til we caught up. The season 3 premiere was awesome. It really is a great, great ensemble and Joan Cusack is great in it.
